Overview

An intriguing book, quite unlike any other The Marrow of Modern Divinity defies pigeonholing. It was written in the 1600s by an author of whom we know little, yet it proved to be a critically important and controversial theological text. Penned as dialogue between a minister(Evangelista), a young Christian(Neophytus), a legalist(Nomista) who believes Christianity is a set of rules to be obeyed and Antinomista who thinks it's okay to sin because God will forgive him anyway, it makes for a wonderfully insightful book that remains tremendously relevant for our world today.This newly laid out and eagerly awaited edition includes explanatory notes by the famous puritan Thomas Boston, an introduction by Philip Ryken and an historical introduction by William Vandoodewaard.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This truly evangelical volume is remarkably well done. This would be a great gift for your pastor and, if he takes it to heart and it changes his preaching, it could be a great gift to the whole congregation!" ~ R. Scott Clark (Professor of Church History and Historical Theology, Westminster Seminary, Escondido, California)
Christian Focus - Philip Ryken
"Both legalism and antinomianism are perennial dangers for the church and for individual Christians. When we begin to think of the Christian life primarily as a list of "dos" and "don'ts," we are under the sway of legalism. When we begin to think that it is okay for us to go ahead and sin, because God will forgive us anyway, we are feeling the temptation of antinomianism.

The Marrow of Modern Divinity proclaims a gospel that can rescue us from both of these dangers. Filled with quotati
Christian Focus - Sinclair Ferguson
"Anyone who comes to grips with the issues raised in The Marrow of Modern Divinity will almost certainly grow by leaps and bounds in understanding three things: the grace of God, the Christian life, and the very nature of the gospel itself. I personally owe it a huge debt. Despite their mild-mannered appearance, these pages contain a powerful piece of propaganda. Read them with great care!"
Sinclair B. Ferguson ~ Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
Christian Focus - Derek Thomas
"The Marrow of Modern Divinity is one of the most important theological texts of all time"
Derek Thomas ~ Minister of Preaching and Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
Christian Focus - Evangelicals Now
"The Marrow addresses issues which are vital for evangelism and for the health and vitality of the Christianity and the church."

Meet the Author

Edward Fisher (1627-1655) was an English theological writer. He is generally considered the author of The Marrow of Modern Divinity (1645) by E. F., a work which influentially stated the doctrine of unconditional grace,[2] and was at the centre of the later Marrow Controversy. This is a view held since Thomas Tanner's attribution of 1721, but it is contested by Alexander Gordon in the Dictionary of National Biography who considers it unlikely on internal evidence.

    Essential reading

    Forsake the pillow prophets of our day and come to grips with the grand biblical doctrines exposited here...perhaps even yet the church may escape the juvenile snares of self-centeredness so espoused by the majority of her compromising leaders.
