Stephen Charnock (1628-1680) wrote what is considered to be the fullest treatment of the attributes of God, even though he did not live to complete the treatise. It is truly a biblical portrait of God drawn with a Puritan pen, rightly deserving its place among the best of Puritan productions and of English literature altogether. However, today's reader may find the 1146 pages a bit daunting. This summary presents the treatise in a more manageable form that maintains the theological depth and practical application of the original. Don't miss out on the riches of Charnock!
Daniel Chamberlin has served as Pastor of Covenant Baptist Church, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA, since 1990. Previously he served as a missionary in Mexico.
"Should you have the money and the space, buy the original. It will look nice on your shelf. But I say in all sincerity, keep this little volume on your desk!
