Know Your Theology Before You Start 16 May 2008
By William Petruzzo - Published on
Format: Paperback
When I began reading Thomas Watson's The Lord's Supper I was expecting, and probably seeking, a better idea of the biblical teaching of the sacrament of communion. What I got was actually much more beautiful.

This book is almost more of a large pamphlet than a book, finishing at just eighty-six pages. I thought when I began I would start it and finish it all in one day. I quickly decided to take it slowly. Watson clearly writes to a group of people who already share a common understanding of the sacrament, as so he makes no defense for any kind of theological standpoint. Instead, as with most Puritan literature, he focuses primarily and consistently on the cross and the implications that it bears for us.

Watson calls us back consistently to undertake the difficult task of examining ourselves, particularly in the context of the sacrament. However, readers who earnestly consider his words will in all likelihood find them permeating their daily walks.

I ended up reading this book like a daily devotional. Taking just a few pages at a time and thinking about them, praying about them, and considering how what was said might affect my life. So what might have taken only a matter of hours on an intellectual level, took more than a week on a spiritual level. I regret no part of that.

In classic literature such as the puritans, it can sometimes seem like your reading a completely different language. As far as ease of reading goes, Watson falls on the easier side. The most difficult part of this book for modern readers will probably be a sometimes unusual vocabulary and occasionally a strange sentence structure.

All in all, I would recommend this book to Christians; particularly those interested in finding deeper love for Jesus, gratitude for the cross, and humility of heart. What honest Christian doesn't want that?

Classic pastoral wisdom concerning the Lord's Supper 31 Jan 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Judas sucked death from the tree of life."
"If a woman saw the sword that killed her husband, how hateful would that sight of it be to her! Do we count that sin light which made Christ's soul heavy unto death?"
These are the kind of pithy, down-home, practical statement that Watson so often uses to communicate very profound insights of what is a pastoral theology of the Puritans. He exploration of the Lord's Supper is masterful, soul-stirring, and communicates very clearly today, centuries after the author wrote.
I noted a blurring of the justification/sanctification issue, a common trait of Puritans, old and new. It's the basic, "you'll know you've been justified if you're acting sanctified." I found the change of flow to be distracting from the masterful discussion and exhortation on the Lord's Supper.
Nonetheless, a wonderful little work on the a profound, gracious sacrament--the Lord's Supper!

a must read for all those who wish to partake of the Lord's Supper 16 Mar 2014

There is no better source of truth then the Bible, but look at the type of people that the old Puritan writers were. Their education and dedication, as well as trials - God made them worthy servants! In today's shallow Christiandom you may trust these writings. May God Bless.
