It is said that Thomas Boston did more to cultivate true Christian devotion in Scotland than any other minister in his generation. And where better to sample his warm spirituality than in his collected writings? Boston's works were first collected and published in 1767 and later reprinted in 1773. The Complete Works, edited by Samuel McMillan and published in twelve volumes in 1853, is now reproduced here with an introduction to Boston's life and theology by Joel R. Beeke and Randall J. Pederson. Boston's writings combine sound exegesis with experiential piety and admonition that continue to encourage a vibrant Reformed spirituality in our own day.

Thomas Boston (1676-1732) was born in Duns, Scotland, the youngest of seven children. He experienced a spiritual awakening when only eleven years old under the preaching ministry of Henry Erskine, the father of Ebenezer and Ralph Erskine. After an education at Edinburgh University, Boston devoted thirty-three years to gospel ministry--first in the parish of Simprin for seven years and then in Ettrick for the remainder of his life. At the denominational level, Boston took a lead in what became known as the Marrow Controversy (1717-1723), where he sought to correct the legalistic tendency in Scottish preaching by emphasizing God's free offer of grace and Christ's meritorious work for the sinner.
