Author: Thomas Watson
Thomas Watson's Body of Practical Divinity is one of the most precious of the peerless works of the Puritans; and those best acquainted with it, prize it most. Watson was one of the most concise, racy, illustrative, and suggestive of those eminent divines who made the Puritan age the Augustan period of evangelical literature. There is a happy union of sound doctrine, heart-searching experience and practical wisdom throughout all his works; and his Body of Divinity is, beyond all the rest, useful to the student and the minister. He explains the Doctrines of God, Divine Sovereignty, Salvation, Sin, and the Trinity with remarkable clarity. His thinking is sound and Scriptural. Puritan theology sets the diadem of our salvation on Christ, and Christ alone, and it is solely on the basis of his meritorious work that we are saved.
Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
DOES THE DESIRE TO KNOW GOD MORE INTIMATELY CONSUME YOUR ENTIRE LIFE AND MINISTRY? This profound compilation on the attributes and excellencies of who God is and what He is like will bring any true believer in Christ Jesus to his or her knees in adoration. In this classic work, Puritan Divine-Thomas Watson takes the theological discussion of the perfections of God and views them through the lens of devotion and worship. He encourages readers to discover the Amazing and breathtaking truths of God, including his Holiness, Justice, Mercy, Wisdom, Omnipresence, Eternity, Immutability, Omniscience and much more.

Author: John Gill
In his book A Body of Practical Divinity, John Gill presents his beliefs on the worship of God. The first section of his text features advice to Christians participating in internal worship. According to Gill, the worshippers should experience thankfulness, humility, and self-denial as they commune with God. Next, Gill discusses the nature of public worship in the church and the special worship duties that belong to pastors, deacons, and church-members. Finally, Gill reviews the duties shared by individuals who participate in private worship. He warns us that the Triune God must remain the sole object of human worship. Gill's practical wisdom is useful for all Christians who aim to ensure that the act of worship is always glorifying to God.
