Commentary on the Shorter Catechism
Volume 1 of (2 volumes) See Volume 2 of Boston's Works
Two large volumes of over 1300 pages! Boston's work is the most comprehensive reference set ever penned on the Westminster Shorter Catechism. Concerning the Shorter Catechism, A.F. Mitchell states, ...it is a thoroughly Calvinistic and Puritan catechism, the ripest fruit of the Assembly's thought and experience, maturing and finally fixing the definitions of theological terms to which Puritanism for half a century had been leading up and gradually coming closer and closer to in its legion of catechisms (The Westminster Assembly: Its History and Standards).
The Shorter Catechism is the "king of the catechisms" for shear power of expression, combining logical cogency with succinctness. Boston's exposition is unrivalled; there is nothing else like it. Here you have the cream of Puritan catechisms married to the cream of clear Puritan exposition! This is likely Boston's most important work. A set that will meet numerous needs, ranging from use in family worship, Christian education and personal study, to sermon preparation — and for help in settling debated questions on the Presbytery floor. A one-of-a-kind set of books that will serve your family for generations to come!
Ian Tallach, in the Foreword to The Beauties of Thomas Boston (p. xii) states,
"Of the many great divines who have adorned the ecclesiastical and theological scene in Scotland, Thomas Boston must be reckoned as among the greatest. Dr. Andrew Thomson who wrote Thomas Boston: His Life and Times, asserts that 'if Scotland had been searched during the earlier part of the eighteenth century there was not a minister of Christ within its bounds who, alike in personal character and in the discharge of his pastoral functions, approached nearer the apostolic model than did this man of God."
There are 7,376 pages in the complete 12 volume set.
