Product Description

Publisher's Description

Thomas Watson was one of the most popular preachers in London during the Puritan era. His writings are marked with clarity, raciness and spiritual richness. Nowhere is this seen so clearly as in his outstandingly helpful exposition of the Shorter Catechism drawn up by the Westminster Assembly. The three-volume edition (of which this is the third) makes an ideal guide to Christian doctrine and practice and also serves as a wonderful introduction to Puritan literature.

In The Lord’s Prayer Watson analyzes in detail the Preface to the prayer and the six petitions which it contains. His treatment of the words ‘thy kingdom come’ is exceptionally full, illuminating and stirring. Like all great books on prayer it provides practical help because it concentrates on biblical instruction.

Endorsement
 
Thomas Watson presents both the glory and simplicity of Christ's lesson on prayer in all its fullness. As the third work in Watson's trilogy supporting the ideas taught in the Westminster catechisms, Watson develops the ideas behind each phrase of the prayer with the best interpreter of Christ's words,Scripture itself. Often praised for his particularly lengthy treatment of the second petition, "thy kingdom come," I found the expostion of "Hallowed be thy name" the most compelling to my faith. This work changed my view of prayer, proving the motivation of prayer needed not to be my own desires, but the glory of God.
