About the Author

Thomas Boston (1676-1732) was a Scottish Puritan and church leader. Educated at Edinburgh, he became the minister of a small parish in 1699. In 1704 he came across Edward Fisher's Marrow of Modern Divinity, a compendium of the opinions of leading Reformation divines on the doctrine of grace and the offer of the Gospel. Boston later published an edition of The Marrow with notes of his own.

In my estimation, this discourse is among the Kindle e-book's "must read" category. Thomas Boston's (1676 -1732) understanding of the human nature in its fourfold state was, no doubt, influenced and in agreement with that same subject discussed in Chapter IX of the Westminster Confession of Faith (1647); Man in a state of innocence (IX, 2), Man in a fallen and sinful state (IX, 3), Man in a state of grace (IX, 4), and Man in a state of glory (IX, 5). This e-book entry provides a cogent development of this theological teaching. A few sample quotes include:

"In the way of the gospel, the sinner must stand before the Lord in an imputed righteousness--but corrupt nature is for an inherent righteousness; and, therefore, so far as natural men follow after righteousness, they follow after `the law of righteousness,' Romans 9:31, 32; and not after `the Lord our righteousness.'"

"The infinity of God makes infinite wrath the just demerit of sin. God is infinitely displeased with sin; and when he acts, he must act like himself, and show his displeasure by proportionable means."

These two quotes alone should encourage the reader to devour what follows in the book: those sections on the state of grace and the eternal state.

Since there is no active table of contents provided, it is suggested that on the initial reading of the text, the reader establish a table of contents with locations in a computer spread-sheet so as to facilitate later readings of this material.

This book is one of the hundreds written by the English Puritans for the instruction and edification of Christians who love the Faith in all its Reformation glory and fullness. I consider it an essential book for all who wish to understand the foundational truths of the Bible regarding the status of mankind from Creation until entrance into Glory, i.e., Innocence, the Fall of Man, the believer's present state of Grace, and our final state in Heaven, including, of course, the concomitant rejection by God of those who will not receive His Son.

This is not a "quick read" as so many of today's productions are. It requires careful and thoughtful reading and meditation, but will surely reward the one dedicated to understanding the deep things of God.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Thomas Boston had incredible insight to the workings of the flesh and just how far it would go to earn salvation. If you don't read anywhere else read pages 268 - 279 and ask yourself if you have had this experience. I believe that real Christianity today is rare indeed and I believe when the Rapture of the Church takes place it will be so few that will be taken that it won't even make the headlines. Read these pages slowly and meditate on what he is saying and please let it speak to your heart like it did mine many years ago.
