Item description for The Systematic Theology of John Brown of Haddington by Brown John, Joel R. Beeke & Randall J. Peterson...
Overview John Brown (1722-1787) of Haddington was a leading Scottish minister in the early eighteenth-century. He was a devout Christian, a gifted preacher, and prolific writer of theology. He began life in obscure poverty, without advantage of wealth, position, title, or education. Yet God favoured him with unusual gifts and an enormous capacity for hard work. Brown taught himself Greek while working in the fields. He became a man of deep spiritual experience with skill in preaching the doctrines of free grace and piety. A Compendious View of Natural and Revealed Religion, is based on his seminary lectures. It contains more than 26,000 proof texts and numerous exegetical insights. This single volume of Reformed systematic theology is rich in content and an indispensable tool for students, pastors, and professors of theology.

Covenantal System of Theology Jun 26, 2002
Brown's Systematic Theology is organized around the doctrine of the covenant, which few (if any) modern systematics emulate. Brown surpasses, in my estimation, the work of Reymond, Berkhof, and Hoeksema, though (may it be said) he lived in a different era with different conflicts. Still, Brown's systematics, based on his seminary lectures, should be read and re-read by modern theologians and laymen; after all, how many systematics end each section with words such as: "Now, O my soul, think what astonishing displays of Jehovah's perfections appear in this covenant!" Buy it, read it, live it.
