John Brinsley (1600-1665), the younger, was a Presbyterian puritan divine who was a powerful Reformed Gospel preacher and writer.

Printed by Edmund Calamy, and with a hearty recommendation from Simeon Ashe, this powerful work by John Brinsley explains 2 Timothy 3:2, “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers…” He explains that in his day (and now in ours) there were those who “sigh and cry” for many abominable blasphemies which are expressed and belched out into the face of God’s Divine Majesty. His purpose is to demonstrate and create a Scriptural antidote to the many “contagions” that roam the corridors of the church, and blaspheme Jesus Christ and his people.

In this masterful treatise he covers the biblical definitions of blasphemy, how God is personally blasphemed, what are heretics and false professors, gives a number of applications to the text, and demonstrates how Christians may avoid blaspheming God. You may think, “I don’t do that so I don’t need this work,” but that would be presumptuous. Every Christian, every day, is faced with various instances of bringing reproach to Christ and his word. This work is an antidote to those temptations.
