Reviews - What do customers think about A Body of Divinity: Contained in Sermons upon the Westminster Assembly's Catechism (Body of Practical Divinity)?
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!
The Body of Practical Divinity Apr 24, 2005
~The Body of Practical Divinity~ is a great classic systematic theology of Reformed Protestantism. The author Thomas Watson was a Puritan divine and offers an erudite systematic theology for the Christian believer from a Reformed-Puritan perspective. The crux of the volume is soteriology (which is the doctrine of salvation according to Jesus Christ.) Not surprisingly, he makes it clear that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone. Watson is rigorously Scriptural in his exegesis, and he enunciates the textual meaning and gives substantive amplification to the Word of God. 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 meritous 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. The great Prince of Preachers, C.H. Spurgeon, opined of Watson's book, as being "one of the most precious of the peerless works of the Puritans." Soli Deo Gloria!
What a Treasure Nov 26, 2004
You will not be dissapointed to invest a little bit of money and getting such an excellent Systematic Theology book. This book is also pratical and full of illustrations. Most assuredly not boring. Packed with good nuggets of Bible data and truths.
A gold mine! Great tool for teacher, discipler, preacher Sep 18, 2004
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. Don't miss his other classic works, The Ten Commandments and The Lord's prayer. You will not be disappointed. All these make great gifts and something your pastor will prize if he doesn't already have them. Enjoy!
