William Perkins (1558-1602) was a Calvinist minister and theologian who was one of the foremost leaders of the Puritan movement in the Church of England. His “Works” were originally published in three large volumes spanning thousands of pages. However, he wrote a number of individual treatises that are exceedingly biblical, spiritual and helpful for Christians today. The Works of William Perkins have not been published until now in these individual treatises.

This work was first published as “A Golden Chain, or A Description of Theology Containing the Order of the Causes of Salvation and Damnation.” Perkins covers who God is, His works in predestination and reprobation concerning fallen men, and what God requires of all men, including His church. This work is a unique systematic theology of sorts that mines out of the Bible a mountain of theological gold which Perkins forges into an unbreakable “Golden Chain” of salvation. It is focused on the work of Jesus Christ as God’s one and only Son and Redeemer, and God’s eternal redemptive plan found in the Covenant of Grace. This is a classic work not to be missed; and has been updated for the modern reader.

Included in this zip file here at the Puritan Shop is Perkins’ Chart on salvation and damnation which this work is based on explaining. It comes as a Jpeg and as a stand alone PDF file. The chart alone is worth your time in contemplative study.

This work is not a scan or facsimile and has been made easy to read with an active table of contents for electronic versions.
