13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Gregory D. Metcalf on June 15, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Title: The Complete Works of Stephen Charnock
Author: Edited & Originally published by Richard Adams and Edward Veal
Publisher: The Banner of Truth Trust
First Copyright Date: 1864
Type of Book: Hardcover, paper-jacketed, Five (5) Volumes
General Subject Matter: Theology
Special Features: None
Price: $129.00
ISBN: 978-1-84871-100-6

Since the author never published his works, save one sermon entitled "On the Sinfulness and the Cure of Evil Thoughts," it is impossible to detail the purpose of Charnock for the writing or publishing of this monumental work. However, we can glean form the comments to the reader by the editors Adams and Veal, we can deduce that they believed the material of these some sixty-four (64) sermons or discourses are of such great spiritual weight that the church would only immensely benefit by their publication.

"So that thou hast here, reader, a specimen of the strain and spirit of this holy man, this being his familiar and ordinary way of preaching, and the sermons coming out first...that a blessing from heaven may be upon this work, and upon thee in reading and studying the nature, and beauty..."

In the words of J.I. Packer, "Charnock has no desire to speculate, but only to declare the works and ways, the nature and character, of the God of the Bible."

Charnock developed these messages or discourses from intense study, prayer, and meditation. He then would preach these discourses from memory or with very little notes. Charnock's design was to inform, inspire, and integrate his flock's heart and soul with the divinely inspired word of God. His intended audience was his flock and any all believers who bend their heart and soul to the Spirit of God.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Michael P. on July 7, 2012
Format: Hardcover
I am reviewing only the quality of the books themselves, because when I was looking for this set (electronic or hard copy), I discovered that it is not easy to get a set that was free of errors.
I spoke with someone at Banner of Truth Publishing to inquire about their edition and I was told that it was free of the errors that other sets have. That person explained the process used to obtain these books from the 19th century copy; and how Banner of Truth produced the error free version.
I purchased my set from them directly and am pleased to say that it is a quality set of books.

I have listened to several discourses from vol. 5 at sermonaudio.com and have been anticipating reading them. Stephen Charnock's writing about the mortification of sin is very insightful. In an effort to understand my own sin more thoroughly, I have read John Owen's work on mortification also. Charnock's work,however, has given me a fuller understanding and I'm just beginning to digest it. I praise God for both of these servants of His.

Quotes from this entry include:

"Reconciliation, justification, and adoption differ thus: in reconciliation, God is considered as the supreme Lord and the injured party, and man is considered as an enemy that hath wronged him; in justification, God is considered as a judge, and man as guilty; in adoption, God is considered as a father, and man as an alien. Reconciliation makes us friends, justification makes us righteous, adoption makes us heirs."

"The blood of Christ cleanseth. The apostle joins nothing with this blood. It has the sole and the sovereign virtue. There is no need of tainted merits, unbloody sacrifices, and terrifying purgatories. The whole of cleansing is ascribed to this blood, not anything to our own righteousness or works. It admits no partner with it, not the blood of martyrs nor the intercessions of saints."

"If man's will were the first cause of regeneration, God would not be the supreme independent cause in the noblest of his works. This work is nobler than creation in respect of the price paid for it. The world was made without the death of anything to purchase the creation of it. But the divine image is not restored without the death of the Son of God, every line in this new image being drawn with his blood."

"He [Christ] has redeemed us by the price of his blood, that he might have us in his own power, as his own property, so that we are no longer our own masters, and have no longer right to ourselves. They ought to die to themselves, that they may live to Christ; it being fit they should live not to their own wills, or own honor, but to the glory and will of their Redeemer. It was to this end that Christ died, that he might have a seed to serve him, and live to him.
