I purchased this book and have enjoyed it very much. Before I launch into my criticism let me say that I gave it five stars because I don't want to taint the amazing value this book brings to our understanding of sanctification. I would add that if Marshall's version was not available then I would gladly give this version five stars and only sing its' praises.

What I am noticing as I work my way through the original is that Marshall is clearer. Let me give one example. At the end of chapter 4, Marshall is explaining the difference of passive and active faith. He uses the faith given to children as one illustration.

Marshall's language:
"And, no doubt, Christ is thus united to many infants, who have the spirit of faith and yet cannot act on that faith, because they have not come to the use of their understanding; but those of riper years, that are joined passively to Christ by the spirit of faith, will also join themselves with Him actively, by the act of faith, and, until they act this faith, they cannot know or enjoy their union with Christ, and the comfort of it, or make use of it, in acting any other duties of holiness acceptably in this life."

McRae's version:
"I have no doubt that many infants come into union with Christ. Why? Because God gives them the Spirit of faith. These infants cannot yet act in faith like adults do, because they are not yet able to use their understanding to full capacity. However, because of the work of Christ in their hearts, they can be united to him. As they get older, those who have been passively joined to Christ by the Spirit of faith will begin to join themselves to him actively by faith. When they begin to act in faith in this way, they will know and enjoy their union with Christ.

This is by far the best book on the doctrine of Sanctification in print. It was originally written in the 17th century, but has been put into modern english with this edition. This book will help you better understand the Gospel and its power not only for our Justification, but our Sanctification as well.

I can only imagine what this would have been like to read in the old English style. It was hard enough to read being revised, and I found it very repetitious. The message is right on, but gets repeated over and over.

Walter Marshall is so effective in disecting Christianity and what it truly means to walk in Christ and to live by faith. For anyone curious, looking for understanding and insight, this is a hidden treasure. Consider yourself blessed for running into a book that is so insightful.

The topic of this book is a "must know" for all Christians. The writing is a little repetitious, but the main idea is profound.
