Enamoured with Piety: Godliness as the Pervading Theme in the Thought and Ministry of Thomas Watson

Product Description

Author Yarran Johnston

Pages 354

Being released in the 400th anniversary of his birth, Emamoured with Piety by Dr. Yarran Johnston, offers an insight into the life and ministry of the Puritan, Thomas Watson. Johnston traces the pervading theme of godliness in Watson's thoughts and writings, making the case that Watson represents English Puritanism in its mature phase, specifically in its understanding of godliness as a proper regard for God. 

"Thomas Watson deserves far more attention than he has received in the past. Thankfully, Yarran Johnston has provided us a fresh and practical way into this Puritan and his work. Drawing particularly on Augustine, Bernard, and Calvin to historically anchor Watson's approach, Johnston helps us understand how this minster distinctly understood and encouraged true godliness. In this, Watson is well worth our attention."
