Product Information

This is Volume IV of Goodwin’s works. It contains many great treatises, the nature and depth of which are rare indeed. The treatises included in Volume four are: Christ Set Forth,Heart of Christ in Heaven,Aggravation of Sin,Encouragements to Faith,Glory of the Gospel andKnowledge of God the Father

1. Christ Set Forth: There are too many who are thrilled only with their new graces after justification by faith. This leads to little study of the Christ, where there are manifold blessings which will expand the soul so as to elevate grace and knowledge of Him to the highest plane.

It is little realized that when Christ bore ''the iniquities of us all,'' that He in faith must look to God the Father for justification (Isa. 50:8, 1 Tim. 3:16), just as the elect burdened by his sins must look for it.

2. The Aggravations of Sin. It is by the Word of God that we must realize that our sin is ''exceeding sinful, above measure sinful'' (Rom. 7:13). Sin is evil. But the question is, how evil is it. What makes it so sinful above measure. Goodwin traces out two major reasons: (1) the sins against knowledge; (2) the sins against mercy.

3. The Glory of the Gospel. The Gospel is glorious because of the riches and glory of Christ Jesus, who is revealed by it. These riches and glories are revealed in the Scriptures by God the Spirit, who is the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation. Christ’s glory is so brilliant that it must be revealed by the Spirit to the weak eyes of the soul. It is a mystery that was hidden from generations (Col. 1:26,27).

4. The Knowledge of God the Father, and His Son Jesus Christ.

A. In the Godhead there are three Persons revealed in the one God. These are seen as conversing with one another, and in the eternal decrees seen glorifying one another. This union and communion with one another is peculiar to the Deity. It cannot be communicated to the creature. Without this there could not have been salvation for us.

B. Of the Son of God, the second Person in the Trinity, His person is to be considered in Himself. He is the eternal Son of the Father, one God in essence with Him (Heb. 1:3 - LITV). The Son, the second Person, took the man Jesus into personal union with Himself; and so Christ is God-man joined into one person.

C. Of the glories and royalties that belong to Jesus Christ, considered as God-man in one person (besides what accrued to Him from His performance of the work of our redemption, and which were appointed for Him by His Father from eternity. The divine attributes of Jesus Christ revealed in the Scriptures throughout.

Goodwin ''represents the cream of Puritanism, capturing the intellect, the will, and the heart of his readers'' (Joel Beeke)

Goodwin (1600-1679) was influential in many ways, a member of the Westminster Assembly, President of Magdalene College, drafter of the Savoy Confession of Faith, and pastor at the most influential Independent church in London.  580 pages, blue linen hard cover
