Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Marrow addresses issues which are vital for evangelism and for the health and vitality of the Christianity and the church." ~ Evangelicals Now

Review

"This truly evangelical volume is remarkably well done. This would be a great gift for your pastor and, if he takes it to heart and it changes his preaching, it could be a great gift to the whole congregation!" ~ R. Scott Clark (Professor of Church History and Historical Theology, Westminster Seminary, Escondido, California)

The Marrow is the historically important book that caused the Marrow Controversy (The Marrow Controversy 1718-1723 (Rutherford studies)) in the Church of Scotland. The Marrow is written as a dialogue among a pastor, a legalist, an antinomian, and a neophyte Christian. It advocates a free grace gospel against both a works-righteousness gospel and a cheap-grace gospel. At the time that Boston's edition came out (circa 1720), the Moderate Party dominated the Church of Scotland, and advocated a legalistic or neonomian gospel. Thus the free-grace perspective of the Marrow was condemned, and its maintainers, the so-called Marrowmen, were deposed from the ministry. The deposed ministers formed the Associate Presbytery, nicknamed the Secession Church. More information can be found in History Of The Secession Church (1839) and The Erskines: Ebenezer And Ralph (1880). In spite of the accusations of antinomianism, the book clearly advocates a role for the Law in sanctification, though not in justification, a dual-covenant view of the Law, as a covenant of grace to the elect, but a covenant of works to the reprobate. There is a great deal of repetition in the Marrow text, and some of the footnotes run for several pages, so reading it can be a bit tedious.

This edition is an improvement, in that it uses a modern typeface, with enough white space to make the text eye-friendly.

When we place our confidence in our own actions--- and become legalistic in our nature, or if we choose to fall asleep under the Grace of Turkish Delight, and slip into what Bonhoeffer called a "Cheap Grace". Both end in ruin. This book keeps you fixed between the two channel markers as you navigate this river of Life.

Great work on so many levels. Boston's notes are gold. My current favorite book outside of the Bible. The Gospel Mystery of Sanctificaiton is a great companion volume to read at the same time.

Great treatment that is so needed today. The confusion between the law and the gospel is still the largest problem to plague the Church.
