Reviews - What do customers think about Body of Divinity?

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.
The Thrill of Theology  Feb 5, 2008
Thomas 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 objective 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.

This review was based on the paperback edition published by the Banner of Truth Trust.

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!
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!
