The opening verses of the best-known of all Christís sermons were handled by many of the Puritans, for the Beatitudes gave full scope to the combination of sound doctrine, practical wisdom and heart-searching application which characterized their preaching. In addition to these general Puritan characteristics, Thomas Watson added certain of his own: a master of a terse, vigorous style and of a beauty of expression, he could speak not only to win menís understanding but also to secure a place for the truth in their memories. More than most of his generation he sought to follow the example of Christís teaching by employing all manner of illustrative material from common life, and with simplicity and charm he spoke words not easy to forget. Two hundred years after Thomas Watsonís death William Jay of Bath said that he could go to any one of his books and Ďfind it ever fresh, pointed and instructive.í The Beatitudes, first published in 1660, has been one of the rarest of Watsonís works. In this edition the layout has been entirely revised and editorial notes supplied.
