    Based on Philippians 4:11, "I have learned, in whatever state I am therewith to be content," Watson considers the great dishonor done to almighty God by the sin of discontent. The doctrine of Christian contentment is clearly illustrated and profitably applied. The special cases where, through changes in providences, discontentment most commonly arises are examined and preservatives are applied to the soul.

    p>Many today believe that the Christian life is rather easy to both obtain and live. But the Puritans saw it as warfare, as wrestling, as "holy violence," to use their term. The Apostle Paul spoke of beating his own body into subjection. And this holy violence is to be brought not only against one's self, but against Satan, the world, and heaven too. And in this confrontation, we must use the weapons God has given us—reading the Word, hearing the Word, prayer, meditation, self-examination, and the due observance of the Lord's Day.

    All Things for Good by Thomas Watson provides the biblical answer to the contemporary question: Why do bad things happen to good people? Thomas Watson, the seventeenth-century minister of St. Stephen's Walbrook, believed he faced two great difficulties in his pastoral ministry. The first was making the unbeliever sad, in the recognition of his need of God's grace. The second was making the believer joyful in response to God's grace. He believed the answer to the second difficulty could be found in Paul's teaching in Romans 8:28-God works all things together for good for his people. First published in 1663 (under the title A Divine Cordial), the year after Watson and some two thousand other ministers were ejected from the Church of England and exposed to hardship and suffering, All Things for Good contains the rich exposition of a man who lived when only faith in God's word could lead him to such confidence. Thomas Watson's exposition is always simple, illuminating, and rich in practical application. He explains that both the best and the worst experiences work for the good of God's people. He carefully analyzes what it means to be someone who "loves God" and is "called according to his purpose."

    In a world that will not tolerate the mention of sin, and in churches where it has been defined only in generic, sociological terms, one could make a good case could that “repentance” is one of the least used words in the English language today. Repentance is essential to true Christianity—Jesus Christ himself said that if we do not repent, we will perish—and there are few better guides that have existed in this or any other area of spiritual experience than Thomas Watson. He was well-versed of both scripture and the human heart, and wrote with a simplicity and directness that keeps his work fresh and powerful for the twenty-first century. “Watson makes clear what repentance really is: ‘True leaving of sin is when the acts of sin cease from the infusion of a principle of grace, as the air ceases to be dark from the infusion of light.’ Watson writes in a clear, practical, and yet penetrating manner.”—Mike Leake, author of Torn to Heal

    Thomas Watson was one of the most famous Puritan preachers in history, and his seventeenth-century writings are still read across the world today. A highly influential example of Puritan writing, The Great Gain of Godliness is Watson's study of Malachi 3:16-18. British Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon bemoaned the fact that he couldn't find a copy of The Great Gain of Godliness. Spurgeon told his scholars, "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 no longer face Spurgeon's dilemma, and listeners can now experience this classic text in a way unimaginable to seventeenth-century scholars.
