Publisher's Summary

Thomas Watson was one of the most famous Puritan preachers in history, and his 17th-century writings are still read across the world today. A highly influential example of Puritan writing, The Great Gain of Godliness is Watson's study of Malachi 3:16-18.

British Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon bemoaned the fact that he couldn't find a copy of The Great Gain of Godliness. Spurgeon told his scholars, "This volume would be a great find if we could come at it, for Watson is one of the clearest and liveliest of Puritan authors." We no longer face Spurgeon's dilemma, and listeners can now experience this classic text in a way unimaginable to 17th-century scholars.

Holiness is not an Option

The narrator was precise and articulate. The story is about being holy because He is holy. Excellent teaching. Got only 4 stars because I do not believe in limited atonement, which is not a thread throughout. Jesus blood atoned for all who will receive Him. One thing I did like is the concept of if one is not living holy, they are not a child of God, not easy believism. Not by works either, If you love Him, He keeps the commandments in your mortal body.

A Puritan Movement Message!

The Puritan movement is captured in this classic. There are many things to take away from this book that helps us to see into the mindset of the early church during the 1800's directly after the reformation period of time during church history. This is a classic call to return to prayer and fasting that best equipped the rebirth of the first century church in Europe and in America as well.

Outstanding

Challenge and encouragement in the faith.
It’s as if he were my own preacher preaching and teaching and expounding the Word of God. A keeper to return to and supplement studying in the Bible.
