Item Description...
homas Watson's A Body of Divinity is a Puritan classic, using the Westminster Shorter Catechism as a starting point for an exploration of the central themes of the Christian faith. Watson's writing style is interesting and well-organized. This book reminds me of J.C. Ryle's Holiness, in that both approach their subjects in such a thorough way. Watson goes through one item of doctrine after another, answering key questions and showing the blessings of an area of doctrine along with some potential pitfalls. For example, Watson deals with a common objection to the sin of Adam and Eve by addressing this question . . . "Was it such a great matter to pluck an apple?" To which he then gives 10 reasons why the sin of Adam and Eve was so serious. This thorough treatment continues throughout the book, making it an indispensable tool for pastors and teachers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent  Nov 9, 2008
Although I love the puritans, their writing can be difficult to read for the lay-person. Watson is very easy to understand way, relatively speaking.
 
Christian Catechism  Jun 3, 2008
This is the most practical and deep work on basic Christian doctrines. Thomas Watson, a puritan from the 16th century, is one of the most profound and clear puritan writters. A deep knowledge of Scripture shared with the passion charasterictic of puritan writters. This is a most read by any Christian, young or mature.

It would do the Church of Christ a huge good to get back to reading the puritan writers. Not only Watson but the likes of Owen, Brooks, Bunyan, Baxter, Charnock, and many other great men of God.

Wonderful Book  Oct 24, 2007
I have found this book to be .... amazing. I've been reading a little bit out of it every night before bed. I can't tell you how many times that I've sat straight up in bed to re-read a paragraph that illuminated a previously tough piece of doctrine with such clarity and simplicity that my heart rejoiced with pleasure and my mind with understanding. I highly recommend it!

"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."~Charles Spurgeon
 
A Body of Divinity Indeed!  Mar 9, 2007
His pen flows; the metaphors echo as a sweet symphony. Where is Bach? where is Mozart? Where is Beethoven? Tell them that there is a new maestro in town. Not one with a musical instrument, lest they be confused, but one with a pen. He makes melodious music on things divine. Tell them, his name is Thomas Watson, the Puritan.

Five stars and counting!
