From the introduction:
The Beauties of Boston is a book that has been treasured by many Christians in past generations. It is full of rich gospel truth and health–giving spiritual prescriptions. Part of its ‘beauty’ is that while a big book it is not really a long book, but a series of smaller and manageable passages that will – as The Marrow of Modern Divinity did for Boston himself – stimulate thought, enhance understanding of the gospel, point us to Christ, and strengthen both mind and spirit in the knowledge and service of God.
Thomas Boston held a pastorate with a very small Congregation in Simprin, Scotland until 1707. He was an extremely popular preacher, though self–effacing – considering that he had but “small talents.” Many of his sermons came to be published after his death at the age of 57.
… wonderful treasure trove of theology … points us to the glorious and majestic beauty of our triune God that we might glorify Him and enjoy Him forever.
Senior Pastor of Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford, Florida and Editor of Tabletalk magazine
Thomas Boston’s sermons and treatises are full of the light of Christ and the fire of the Holy Spirit. Once you read this quotable and spiritually uplifting and convicting volume, I predict that you will want to press on to purchase and read the twelve capacious volumes of his complete works!

Anyone who thinks good theology clogs the arteries of experiential piety is in for a surprise with Thomas Boston. Many of us believe the right doctrines but experience something—or Someone—else. Let Boston’s wisdom on a variety of ‘hot’ topics blow you away.
J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California, Escondido, California
Thomas Boston rises to the top in any compilation of the best preacher–theologians worth reading. These selections from his writings will give you an hors d’oeuvre to whet your appetite for more of Boston’s gospel–centered reflections. A treasure.
