Thomas Watson rekindled

For those of you with e-readers, you might want to know that Monergism is supplying The Works of Thomas Watson as an ebook. You get fourteen volumes for $12.95, as follows:

  • A Body of Practical Divinity
  • The Ten Commandments
  • The Lord’s Prayer
  • The Beatitudes
  • The Godly Man’s Picture
  • The Art of Divine Contentment
  • A Treatise Concerning Meditation
  • The Great Gain of Godliness
  • The Doctrine of Repentance
  • The Mischief of Sin
  • A Divine Cordial
  • The Christian Soldier
  • The Christian’s Charter
  • The Duty of Self-Denial

Watson is a great ‘entry level’ Puritan, one of the liveliest and most accessible of those great preachers, pastors and writers, without sacrificing profundity or penetration.

Assuming its technical standards are as high as promised, I can recommend this product unstintingly, although I would also consider looking at the short essay on baptism written by Spurgeon that was appended to a reprint of A Body of Divinity. It just straightens things out a bit!
