'If there is one book that more than any other stands out as
representative of the best of our Scottish religious classics it is
Human Nature in its Fourfold State, ' says John Macleod in Some
A clear and vigorous challenge to preachers and laymen to remain
persistent in sharing the gospel with unsaved people. The book is
split in two parts: 1. The promise of duty. How does Christ make
men 'fishers of men'? Why are unconverted men compared to fish
under water? In what ways are ministers fishers by office? 2. How
may I come by this art? What following Christ supposes and implies?
In which way is Christ to be followed? This is a classic
explanation of the Puritan approach to evangelism that is also an
encouragement for anyone explaining the gospel to someone else.
First published in 1737 this book holds a special place among the
tremendous amount of Puritan literature that was produced during
that time. Thomas Boston was renowned for his clearly understood
English and the manner in which he maintained that clarity while
conveying messages of great depth. The Crook in the Lot is
introduced to us by J. I. Packer. In an extensive prologue he shows
how Boston's advice remains deeply relevant today. Boston was not
preaching merely from his theological understanding, he was
speaking from direct personal experience. Boston had real "thorns"
to deal with himself, ranging from his wife's paralyzing depression
to his own experiences living for years with what were probably
kidney stones. He brings his own unique combination of wonderfully
profound and yet immensely practical advice to bear to give us a
work of lasting impact.
