John Greene (d. 1660), was Pastor of Pencombe, a Presbyterian and Reformed minister, and a member of the Westminster Assembly of Divines.
These three works contained in this volume are rare. They are all that remain of his preaching and writing.
The treatise on Adam’s fall is outstanding. It covers who Adam was in creation in the Covenant of Works, his constitution, and the manner and reality of the fall. Greene includes an incredibly valuable section on why Adam fell, but also discusses how Adam fell – a subject often neglected by ministers and theologians.
His two sermons cover the outstanding exposition of “The Church’s Duty for Received Mercies” on 1 Samuel 12:24, “Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth, with all your heart; for consider what great things he hath done for you.” And his second sermon on “Nehemiah’s Tears” is an exposition on prayer and fasting on Nehemiah 1:3-4, “…that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven.”
