Product Information

This is Volume VI of Goodwin’s Works, entitled, The Work of the Holy Spirit in Salvation.
It is not well known that there can be no salvation through faith until God the Spirit implants spiritual life into the soul. Goodwin explains how this relates to the Doctrine of the Trinity first, then the roles played by each of the three Persons in the Godhead in salvation.

1. What the gift of the Holy Spirit means to the elect, and when it was that He was actually given.
2. How the work of regeneration is done in us, and in what manner is it attributed to the Holy Spirit.
3. God carries the elect through two states, the state of nature, and the state of grace. The necessity of regeneration in passing between them.
4. For holy and just reasons God permits some elect persons to live to a ripe age before being regenerated.
5. The necessity of regeneration demonstrated from the nature of reconciliation with God. Regeneration can be set forth under the notion of reconciliation to God. Differences between true and false.
6. The Divine power put forth in a saving work of regeneration.
7. Of the new creature, that which is begotten in us. Why it is said ''that  which is born of the Spirit is spirit'' (John 3:6).
8. Demonstration that this new creature is a change of the heart.
9. That it is a different and higher principle than the natural conscience, in its greatest elevation of light.
10. Proof that the new creature is peculiar only to the elect. How it differs from the common work of the Spirit in temporaries.
11. The virtual cause of regeneration is the resurrection of Jesus.
12. There are three parts of regeneration, and the new creature. 1. Humiliation for sin, and the necessity of it. 2. Faith in Christ for justification. 3. Turning from sin to God.
13. The nature and way of conversion illustrated from an instance of what it was in Job’s time; also in the instance of Paul’s conversion.
14. Of one eminent disposition of a man who is born again, that he will desire and endeavor to convert others to God.
15. The distinguishing characteristics of the new creature, of ones born again. Such a one will make God his chief good, and will make the glory of God his utmost end.

Goodwin ''represents the cream of Puritanism, capturing the intellect, the will, and the heart of his readers'' (Joel Beeke).  

Goodwin (1600-1679) was influential in many ways, a member of the Westminster Assembly, President of Magdalene College, drafter of the Savoy Confession of Faith, and pastor at the most influential Independent church in London.  540 pages, blue hardback cover
