Item description for Marrow of Theology, The (Labyrinth Press) by William Ames, John Dykstra Eusden & John Eusden...

William Ames' classic summary of seventeenth-century Puritan theology is once again available in its only modern English translation. Ames was one of the most influential theologians of his day, particularly among New England Puritans such as John Cotton and Thomas Hooker. He was, in fact, planning to travel to America at the time of his death. These lectures were first presented to students in Leyden in the 1620s, and their reissue will be of great interest to contemporary students of Puritanism. The Marrow of Theology is composed of two books. The first summarizes the Puritan understanding of the traditional doctrinal elements of systematic theology. The second covers the more practical matters of the Christian life. Combined with John Dykstra Eusden's excellent introductory study of Puritan theological method, this volume provides an indispensible tool for the study of Puritanism and its influence on later theology.

Publishers Description
One of history's most influential Christian writings presents the Puritan understanding of God, the church, and the world. Now in modern English.

Reviews - What do customers think about Marrow of Theology, The?

marrow snubbed by seminary boys  Jun 28, 2005
I'll get 1 star ratings for this review, as usual, but this --- ready? --- is a great book! Don't listen to the seminary boys who think if a book is more than 18 months old it's 'outdated', or 'surpassed' by 'better theology'. This is systematic theology very condensed, uniquely organised, and scholastically poetic. It's the type of work that can be read after you've learned the basics and are looking for an influence to consolidate it all for you. It's a very historical book too. It's a book where when you finish you say, "Wow, I just read Ames' Marrow of Theology. I'm like a New England Puritan or something." (Quick, give me a one-star rating for that sentence!) This book, Calvin's Institutes, Witsius' Economy of the Covenants, John Owen's Biblical Theology, the Westminster Standards, Meredith G. Kline's Works (Kingdom Prologue, Images of the Spirit, Glory In Our Midst, etc.), Reymond's New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith, Berkhof's Systematic Theology, these books will teach you Covenant Theology, the deep fountains and celestial pillars of the Plan of God from eternity and in time. The Spirit will connect you, and your effort to act from God's Will rather than vanity, worldly pride, and self-will will develop you and get you back to the possessing the full image of God. Provoke limits, extend limits; gratitude over resentment. Now it is high time to awake out of sleep!

On Every Pilgrim's Bookshelf  Sep 26, 2000
William Ames' "Marrow" is one of the two or three books sure to have been found on every pilgrims bookshelf beside the Geneva Bible, a Bay Psalm book and perhaps a few others (Maybe Wigglesworth's "Day of Doom")was Ames works, and to be sure it's special place was deserved. Ames wrote the Marrow in order to take all the confusing arguments of systematic theology and boil them down to the essence, so his readers would have the BARE BONES of the point at issue. This he did magnificently! This edition has a full biography of Ames and a good writeup that gives the feel for the times and debates surround the work. A masterpiece!
