The Crook in the Lot

1 rating


Originally published in 1737, The Crook in the Lot continues to bring comfort and inspire countless souls, and it remains one of the most beloved of all Puritan classics. Its depth of explanation regarding God's role in our afflictions and sufferings is without equal. Thomas Boston - a well-known, influential, and beloved Puritan - was famous for his ability to communicate sound biblical truths in a way that conveyed clarity and insight. In this Puritan classic, he not only reveals a theological understanding of the problems of pain and suffering but also preaches from tangible experience; Boston himself had problems in life that caused him great physical and emotional pain. This short but powerful treatise remains deeply relevant today.

Human Nature in Its Fourfold State


Thomas Boston's Human Nature in Its Fourfold State is often regarded as one of Christian literature's best discourses on human nature, tracing it from its perfect beginnings in Eden, through the fall of man, and on to its final state in eternity. According to Boston, the four states of man are the state of innocence, in which God made him; the state of nature, as he has unmade himself; the state of grace, as created in Jesus Christ; and the eternal state, as made by the Judge of All Things. Boston's remarkable insight makes this audiobook a must-listen for Christians the world over.

Am I Really a Christian?


Though it would certainly be unkind to give false assurance of salvation to someone who has not been truly converted, it would be equally cruel to withhold comfort and assurance to a weak lamb who suffers with despair over his spiritual state.  In his spiritual classic Human Nature in Its Fourfold State, Thomas Boston lists eight "cases" where a true Christian might have spiritual doubts about the authenticity of his faith. Such doubts, Boston notes "may hinder some persons from the comfortable view of their happy state". Thus, he aims to encourage, comfort, and assure those saints who are burdened with such doubts.
