Summary

In a world that will not tolerate the mention of sin, and in churches where it has been defined only in generic, sociological terms, one could make a good case could that repentance is one of the least used words in the English language today. Repentance is essential to true Christianity - Jesus Christ himself said that if we do not repent, we will perish - and there are few better guides that have existed in this or any other area of spiritual experience than Thomas Watson. He was well versed in both scripture and the human heart and wrote with a simplicity and directness that keeps his work fresh and powerful for the 21st century.

A Humbling Deeply moving listen

I think there are few words that could describe the joy I felt listening to this great work and doctrine. He is like others a great Soul Doctor. You will not be disappointed, his convincing words have caused me to look for other Thomas Watson titles. I look forward to listening to this again.

Essential listening

This audio exceeded my expectations. It is essential listening not only for any serious Christian but even for those who are trying to make the very first step as to become a better person. It talks about mystery of grace of God and how crucial is the spirit of God touching the heart of a person in the coversion process. It requires active cooperation of a person that reflects itself in the overall change of lifestyle. After all, this effort is a requirement for anyone a aspiring to share a beatific vision and presence of God one day for all eternity!

Puritanism Made Difficult

Sums up Puritanism nicely- succinct but very hard to live by in the real world.

Awesome

What books written over 300 years from now will be read, much less listened to?! I was blessed from beginning to end. This great man of God knew true repentance. Highly recommended to those who are honestly looking to repent. Others, looking for a watered down don't offend me book better take cover. To God be the glory.

Listen to it again and again.

I've always found it hard to dig into Puritan books, so when I saw this, I just had to listen to it.

Being as it is a deep theological work, there are so many nuggets of wisdom to keep you coming back to listen to it. This is not one to listen to at double speed.

Much Needed

After listening to this book I realized how much I needed it. I also plan to re-listen to it at a minimum annual; or whenever God turns me to it due to my sinning, to bring me back to a contrite heart.

Does it matter?

If your soul matters to you... Repent and turn to Jesus. This book stirred me; I hope it will stir you as well.

Best book on repentance

This is the best book on the doctrine of repentance that I’ve read. There is no escaping the biblical truth of repentance in Watson’s amazing work.

A Favorite

There are so many amazing Puritan works, it's really impossible to say enough about them. This one by Thomas Watson on repentance is simply outstanding. Here is an essential subject in dire need of understanding by all. This work easily bears much repeating.
