Extracts from the Writings of Thomas Watson
The writings of Thomas Watson (c1620-1686) have been a source of encouragement and enlightenment to Christians for over 320 years; but to the modern reader their language and structure can often hinder the enjoyment of their true value. In 1915, Hamilton Smith (1862-1943) set out to make the heart of the writings (and of Watson himself) more accessible to the reader of his day. He organised a selection of extracts under topical headings covering the themes of warnings, healing, giving, longing, contentment, poverty, afflictions, persecution, temptation, contention, preaching, praying, meditation, departing and crowning. Retaining Watson's original text, he created a volume of devotional readings which have stood the test of time in sharing Watson's practical wisdom and apt illustrations. The publisher is pleased to make this classic work available once again.
