Great Gain of Godliness
Puritan Paperbacks
Share |

C. H. Spurgeon had a well-stocked library of Puritan books that contained around 12,000 volumes. However, one rare book was not to be found amongst that valuable collection: Thomas Watson’s Notes on Malachi 3:16-18. With a note of sadness in his voice he said to his College students: ‘This [volume] would be a great find if we could come at it, for Watson is one of the clearest and liveliest of Puritan authors. We fear we shall never see this commentary, for we have tried to obtain it, and tried in vain.’ In this reset and lightly edited edition you can now read the book that was on Spurgeon’s ‘wish-list’! “The Great Gain of Godliness” is Watson’s exposition of Mal. 3:16-18. In it he aims ‘to encourage solid piety and confute the atheists of the world, who imagine there is no gain in godliness.’ This book has all the hallmarks of Thomas Watson’s other writings: a combination of rich spirituality, nourishing doctrine, and sane practical wisdom coupled with fascinating illustrations and a very pleasant style.

This book will move your soul to examine your heart and relationship to God. It is for the strong of heart and for the weak of soul. It is a cleansing stream and a humbling of spirit. It is a book to bring repentance, conviction, and victory. No believer should be without it, thank God for faithful men. Thank God for my faithful puritan brothers and sisters in Chirst, who went before us men and women who would not compromise.- Guy Marvulli
