Thomas Watson (1620-1686) was one of the most highly esteemed nonconformist Puritans of his day, as well as being an extremely popular preacher for today’s Reformed and Christian audience via his works. Most of Thomas Watson’s works are in print. They are filled with sound doctrine, practical wisdom, and heart-searching application. He is one of the most well-known and quoted Puritans.

This work is a combination of two of Watson’s rare treatises that were taught consecutively to his congregation. The first is called “The Saint’s Spiritual Delight” which covers the first part of Psalm 1:2, “But his delight is in the Law of the Lord.” He explains what spiritual delight is, how it relates to the Law of God, the fountain of spiritual delight in Christ, and then covers hypocrisy, conscience, holy delight and thankfulness.

His second treatise comes from the latter half of Psalm 1:2, “…and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” This is a wonderful guide for biblical meditation and one of the best Puritan works on the subject aside from its brevity. He covers the nature of meditation, the duty of meditation, the subjects of meditation, time for mediation, the usefulness of meditation, the excellency of meditation and certain rules for mediation.

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