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.

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.
"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.
