Summary

Originally published in 1737, The Crook in the Lot continues to bring comfort and inspire countless souls, and it remains one of the most beloved of all Puritan classics. Its depth of explanation regarding God's role in our afflictions and sufferings is without equal.

Thomas Boston - a well-known, influential, and beloved Puritan - was famous for his ability to communicate sound biblical truths in a way that conveyed clarity and insight. In this Puritan classic, he not only reveals a theological understanding of the problems of pain and suffering but also preaches from tangible experience; Boston himself had problems in life that caused him great physical and emotional pain. This short but powerful treatise remains deeply relevant today.

Profound teaching for all “Timothy’s”

I was greatly encouraged & molded with greater awareness of the gentle kindness of our blessed Lord Jesus in his dealings with us as The Servant of the LORD. Paul’s words in 2 Timothy 2:22-26 (esp. 24) profoundly echo & apply Christ’s disposition and behavior to all the Lord’s “Timothy’s”. The Lord’s servant “must be” kind, able to teach, patient, gentle & deeply aware of the sovereign hand of God behind, in and through all things & circumstances; his “Lot”... This is a book for all pastor/teachers, young & old. He determines our “lot”. He determines our “crook”. Awareness of His sovereignty greatly aided The Lord’s servant humbly walking in his Master’s footsteps. Wonderful timely book by Thomas Boston!
