An attractively laid out edition of the Christian classic with explanatory notes from well–known puritan Thomas Boston

An intriguing book, quite unlike any other The Marrow of Modern Divinity defies pigeon–holing. It was written in the 1600s by an author of whom we know little, yet it proved to be a critically important and controversial theological text.


Penned as dialogue between a minister (Evangelista), a young Christian (Neophytus), a legalist (Nomista) who believes Christianity is a set of rules to be obeyed and Antinomista who thinks it’s okay to sin because God will forgive him anyway, it makes for a wonderfully insightful book that remains tremendously relevant for our world today.


This newly laid out and eagerly awaited edition includes explanatory notes by the famous puritan Thomas Boston, an introduction by Philip Ryken and an historical introduction by William Vandoodewaard.

Thomas Boston's annotated edition of The Marrow of Modern Divinity is one of the most important texts in the history of Reformed discussions of justification, assurance and ethics. It has a controversial history - as the notes provided by Boston indicate - but that is because the matters on which it touches are so central to understanding both the gospel and the Christian life. This is a book which repays the time spent studying it.

The Marrow of Modern Divinity, written by Edward Fisher (whose identity is obscure) and published in the mid-seventeenth century, was systematic theology in a popular format. Featuring discussions among four people -- Nomista, a legalist; Antinomista, an antinomian; Neophytus, a young Christian; and Evangelista, a Christian minister -- it distilled in palatable form complex issues in law and grace that drive toward Christian maturity. A century later, Thomas Boston, that most prolific of Scottish pastor-theologians, so prized the work that he published a new edition, complete with his own notes. This new edition by Christian Focus preserves all of this material, but in a new layout with wide margins and clean type, making it a joy to read.
