This is a facsimile of an edition originally published in 1881, and combines under one cover Watson's three works, A Body of Divinity, The Ten Commandments, and The Lord's Prayer. It ends up rather thick, even with the tiny typeface. Also, as a facsimile, it has spots, blurring, and a small amount of underlining from the copy which was used. A Body of Divinity is a systematic theology, presented as a series of sermons based on the first thirty-nine questions of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. as such, Watson presents a traditional system of Reformed Orthodoxy, i. e., a Calvinistic soteriology and Puritan view of sanctification. He makes passing negative comments about the views of Catholicism (as it existed in the 17th Century), Socinianism (i. e., Unitarianism), and antinomianism.

The edition used for the facsimile was carelessly edited, with spelling errors (especially "slight" for "sleight"), and errors in biblical citations, e. g. Ez. 37:27 for 35:27, Job 23:26 for 22:23 & 26, and II Cor. 5:20 for 5:21. Verses are cited by Roman numerals, e. g., John iii, 16, instead of the modern form, 3:16. Also, there are frequent short Latin quotes, mostly given without translation. However, reading them is not essential for understanding the sections that include them.

The commanding Puritan Thomas Watson in "A Body of Divinity" delivers a powerful classic in his exposition of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. He takes the WSC as an outline of the essential doctrines of Christianity. In this potent volume, Watson discusses with fine precision:

* A Preliminary Discourse To Catechising
* Man's Chief End
* The Scriptures
* The Being of God
* The Knowledge of God
* The Holiness of God
* The Mercy of God
* The Trinity
* The Providence of God
* Original Sin
* The Covenant of Grace
* Christ's Humiliation In His Incarnation
* Christ the Redeemer
* Justification
* Sanctification
* Peace
* A Believer's Privilege At Death

Col 1: 23 "If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled."

Watson instructs: "Intending next Lord's day to enter upon the work of catechizing, it will not be amiss to give you a preliminary discourse, to show you how needful it is for Christians to be well instructed in the grounds of religion. 'If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled."

Watson adds: " It is the duty of Christians to be settled in the doctrine of faith. It is the apostle's prayer, I Pet 5: 10, 'The God of all grace stablish, strengthen, settle you.' That is, that they might not be meteors in the air, but fixed stars. The apostle Jude speaks of 'wandering stars, in verse 13. They are called wandering stars, because, as Aristotle says, 'They do leap up and down, and wander into several parts of the heaven; and being but dry exhalations, not made of that pure celestial matter as the fixed stars are, they often fall to the earth.' Now, such as are not settled in religion, will, at one time or other, prove wandering stars; they will lose their former steadfastness, and wander from one opinion to another. Such as are unsettled are of the tribe of Reuben, 'unstable as water,' Gen 49: 4; like a ship without ballast, overturned with every wind of doctrine. Beza writes of one Belfectius, that his religion changed as the moon. The Arians had every year a new faith. These are not pillars in the temple of God, but reeds shaken every way. The apostle calls them 'damnable heresies.' 2 Pet 2: 1. A man may go to hell as well for heresy as adultery. To be unsettled in religion, argues want of judgment. If their heads were not giddy, men would not reel so fast from one opinion to another. It argues lightness. As feathers will be blown every way, so will feathery Christians. "
Watson presses: "It is the great end of the word preached, to bring us to a settlement in religion."

One of my favorite expositions is on WSC question 6:
Q-6. HOW MANY PERSONS ARE THERE IN THE GODHEAD?
A: Three persons, yet but one God.
I John 5: 7 "There are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, and these three are one."

Watson expounds: "God is but one, yet are there three distinct persons subsisting in one Godhead. This is a sacred mystery, which the light within man could never have discovered. As the two natures in Christ, yet but one person, is a wonder; so three persons, yet but one Godhead. Here is a great deep, the Father God, the Son God, the Holy Ghost God; yet not three Gods, but one God. The three persons in the blessed Trinity are distinguished, but not divided; three substances, but one essence. This is a divine riddle where one makes three, and three make one. Our narrow thoughts can no more comprehend the Trinity in Unity, than a nut-shell will hold all the water in the sea. Let me shadow it out by a similitude. In the body of the sun, there are the substance of the sun, the beams, and the heat; the beams are begotten of the sun, the heat proceeds both from the sun and the beams; but these three, though different, are not divided; they all three make but one sun: so in the blessed Trinity, the Son is begotten of the Father, the Holy Ghost proceeds from both; yet though they are three distinct persons, they are but one God."

Watson on Justification: "Justification is the very hinge and pillar of Christianity. An error about justification is dangerous, like a defect in a foundation. Justification by Christ is a spring of the water of life."

Then he adds: "What is meant by justification? It is verbum forense, a word borrowed from law-courts, wherein a person arraigned is pronounced righteous, and is openly absolved. God, in justifying a person, pronounces him to be righteous, and looks upon him as if he had not sinned."
