Overview

Thomas Watson’s Body of Practical Divinity is one of the most precious of the peerless works of the Puritans; and those best acquainted with it, prize it most. Watson was one of the most concise, racy, illustrative, and suggestive of those eminent divines who made the Puritan age the Augustan period of evangelical literature. There is a happy union of sound doctrine, heart-searching experience and practical wisdom throughout all his works; and his Body of Divinity is, beyond all the rest, useful to the student and the minister. He explains the Doctrines of God, Divine Sovereignty, Salvation, Sin, and the Trinity with remarkable clarity. His thinking is sound and Scriptural. Puritan theology sets the diadem of our salvation on Christ, and Christ alone, and it is solely on the basis of his meritorious work that we are saved. The body of the text is not at all archaic, as it has a fluid feel and is easy to read. His writings are his best memorial; perhaps he needed no other, and therefore providence forbade the superfluity. He was a man of considerable reaming, a popular, but judicious preacher, if one may judge from his writings, and eminent in the gift of prayer. Mr. Watson published a variety of books upon practical subjects, and of a useful nature, but his principal work was A Body Of Divinity, in one hundred and seventy-six sermons, upon the Assembly’s Catechism, which did not appear till after his death. For many a year, this volume continued to train the common people in theology and it may still be found very commonly in the cottages of the Scottish peasantry. Thomas Watson is one of the great puritan writers and this is one of his finest books. It is Watson's exposition of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. With skill of a theologian and a heart of a pastor, Watson unfolds for the reader the great doctrines of the Bible. This book is a resource that you will never exhaust for its insights and helps. Great tool for someone working with new believers, introducing others to doctrine. Truly a Masterpiece!!! AAA+++
