Thomas Goodwin was a prolific author and editor. During the 1630s he coedited with John Ball the works of John Preston and Richard Sibbes. He began to publish his own sermons in 1636. Prior to his death, he had published at least twelve devotional works, most of which were collections of sermons. The fact that they were reissued forty-seven times indicates the high demand and wide circulation of his publications.

Most of Goodwin’s major theological writings were the fruit of his riper years and were published posthumously. His unusually large corpus of treatises display a pastoral and scholarly zeal rivaled by few Puritans. Goodwin represents the best of Puritanism in addressing the intellect, will, and heart. His writings reveal the vigor of earlier Puritans such as William Perkins and Richard Sibbes as well as the mature thought of later Puritan divines, supremely represented by Owen. If you want to grow in grace and have your soul fed on the deep things of God, buy and prayerfully read Goodwin’s Works.

Endorsement 

“Thomas Goodwin was, along with Owen and Sibbes, among the greatest of the Puritans. Yet for all his greatness he is, sadly and strangely, hardly known today. That is lamentable, as his ministry was pervasively imbued with a distinctly comforting theme that is under-celebrated today, though present throughout all 12 volumes of his works: the heart of God and of Christ. This new hardback edition is a treasure to read, reread, and pass down through the generations.” — Dane Ortlund, senior pastor, Naperville Presbyterian Church
