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.
