    1. Librarian Note There is than one author in the database with this name Thomas Watson c 1620 1686 was an English, non conformist, Puritan preacher and author He was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he was noted for remarkably intense study In 1646 he commenced a sixteen year pastorate at St Stephen s, Walbrook He showed strong Presbyterian views during the civil war, with, however, an attachment to the king, and in 1651 he was imprisoned briefly with some other ministers for his share in Christopher Love s plot to recall Charles II of England He was released on 30 June 1652, and was formally reinstated as vicar of St Stephen s Walbrook He obtained great fame and popularity as a preacher until the Restoration, when he was ejected for nonconformity Not withstanding the rigor of the acts against dissenters, Watson continued to exercise his ministry privately as he found opportunity Upon the Declaration of Indulgence in 1672 he obtained a license to preach at the great hall in Crosby House After preaching there for several years, his health gave way, and he retired to Barnston, Essex, where he died suddenly while praying in secret He was buried on 28 July 1686 Information from

    2. On the plus side of good Listened to it again in April of 2017, and thought it improved a star, from three to four Listened to it again in November of 2017.

    3. I am thankful to have picked this up when I did Watson is both biblical and theological in persuading you to repent Also, this is probably one of the most quotable books I have ever read Here is just a taste Smite your soul, said Chrysostom, smite it it will escape death by that stroke How happy it would be if we were deeply affected with sin, and our eyes did swim in their orb Repentance is pure gospel grace A wicked man may be troubled for scandalous sins a real convert laments heart sins God [...]

    4. A really good book on repentance Uncovers all the false ways we repent, gives a picture of what true repentance looks like, as well as motivations to repent The only drawback is one can leave feeling like they have never really repented at all As with most Puritans, they uncover our the deceitfulness of our heart, which can leave someone feeling unsure that they are even saved I am not sure that is such a bad thing Carl Trueman said when he was in England he had to convince folks they really wer [...]

    5. What mattered then matters nowI thought this was a very accessible book There were times where it felt repetitive but then it also made me realize how nuanced repentance is Also, from reading this book, I realized that what I m being reminded today was also important back then.Thankful for the reminders and also new lenses that this book provided me.

    6. This was very good A book on repentance sounds like something hung you might want to avoid, but what treasure there is in this little book I was convicted and also sharpened to better understand repentance and how I might go about doing that before my God and King Short book and well worth your time.

    7. Great Will refer back anytime I need counsel on repenting Thorough, discouraging, heart warming, Puritan.

    8. Watson s Doctrine of Repentance is my go to work on the subject Exceptionally practical, it is a master work of Puritan applied theology This book, in the Puritan Paperback edition, is accessible, rich, reverent and complete Watson breaks down true repentance into seven major steps, all of which are immensely useful for today s Christian who finds himself in need of such grace and mercy as repentance In ministry, this book makes a great hand out to those struggling with sin, much useful than mu [...]

    9. How happy it would be if we were deeply affected with sin This book does just that It deeply affects the reader with their sins Showing them the bitterness of sin compared to the sweetness of the blood of Christ that can be had for all who would repent.

    10. Once I started reading, I could not put the book down Written so simply yet so profoundly I found myself underlining, marking, and meditating on the quips, quotes, and Scriptures woven together by this Puritan work of nearly 350 years ago I recommend this small book for any minister of the Gospel as well as any person wanting to learn of the doctrine of repentance found in the Word of God Having my heart stirred, I will be recommending this book to many of my friends Here are a few lines from t [...]

    11. A wicked man may be troubled for scandalous sins a real convert laments heart sins 8 Judas had some trouble of mind It is one thing to be a terrified sinner and another to be a repenting sinner Sense of guilt is enough to breed terror Infusion of grace breeds repentance If pain and trouble were sufficient to repentance, then the damned in hell should be most penitent, for they are most in anguish Repentance depends upon a change of heart There may be terror, yet with no change of heart 6 A true [...]

    12. Repentance has fallen on hard times among American evangelicals Churches would rather hear a message free of God s wrath and filled with a pseudo love If pastors would read and take to heart Thomas Watson s The Doctrine of Repentance we might see a heaven sent revival Watson reveals the absolute need for repentance in the life of the sinner This repentance is a grace of God that consists of six elements 1 Sight of sin 2 Sorrow for sin 3 Confession of sin 4 Shame for sin 5 Hatred for sin 6 Turnin [...]

    13. Never have I underlined a book so much In fact, I underlined every page but 3 As my first puritan read, I was not at all intimidated by the language translation The book is only 60 pages, but it s condensed with much wisdom, scripture, and theology I highly recommend this for anyone who knows they have unrepentant sin or addiction This short read took me a month or two to finish due to all the notetaking and chewing I could hardly make it a page or two before stopping to think I could not believ [...]

    14. This book is such a convicting gut punch Watson really gets at the root of true biblical Repentance Particularly helpful to me is how he exposes false repentance in our hearts This is an old puritan book, but don t let that intimidate you It s a very easy read and the footnotes in the Banner of Truth Puritan Paperbacks version help with unfamiliar terms to modern readers This book will crush you in a good way by exposing the ugliness of sin, while showing the beauty and grace found only in Chris [...]

    15. Thx s book hit me hard The reasons for repentance The reasons repentance is contrary to our nature Why it is necessary Watson of resents it in such a way you would not realize his original audience was a few hundred years ago He is a master of language and i finished every chapter doing self evaluation

    16. I never thought about repentance much before reading this I don t understand repentance and I think this is a good book to go back to again and again to remind me of this very importance facet of the faith

    17. amazing book.ere are things i never thought of and really good instruction.i am always amazed by the amount of thought and wisdom contained by people of a past era we assume ourselves wiser but underestimate puritans.

    18. Must ReadA great discourse on what true repentance looks like It is not enough to only acknowledge sin but to have an intense hatred of it Til sin be bitter, Christ will never be sweet

    19. ExcellentA much needed reminder for Christians and heathen alike Without Christ there would be no repentance Thank the Lord for His abundant mercies.

    20. I am always amazed at the clarity and depth of Watson s writing On a topic as important and neglected as this one, both are a real blessing.

    21. This book was published in 1668 and written by Thomas Watson When reading older books, I am always a bit hesitant in reading them because I am fearful that I will not understand some of the details because of the older English vernacular Thankfully, this wasn t the case in this edition It never ceases to amaze me just how much we still have in common with people throughout the generations The spiritual struggles Christians had in the 1600 s are the same ones that we have today As an old soul I t [...]

    22. With typical Puritan thoroughness, Thomas Watson explored in 1668 what it means to repent It is still potent today.Watson considers what repentance isn t, what it is, reasons to repent, and warnings for not repenting He exhorts us to repent, to repent speedily He describes repentance, the comfort that comes with it, obstacles to repentance, and ways to repent Scripture flows freely from Watson s pen, especially at the end of chapters as he comes to his climax.The title will mislead the modern re [...]

    23. Slowly, page by page as you read, your sins in the deepest level will come to the surface As I kept reading, I could sense how deceitful it is to think that I am a passionate follower of Christ There is still a long way to go All I could say is, I am like the Beggar who says to Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on Me I think, this book is the best book on Repentance, it takes a lot of time to reflect and read this Repentance comes from the Holy Spirit Also, you can check out John Owen s book on th [...]

    24. Thomas Watson is one of my favorite authors Few people are able to write as simply and powerfully as Watson He has an ability to illustrate that brings you up close to the idea is communicating This book on repentance in particular is an outstanding This is such an important and much neglected topic He has many great quotes but here is one good one to hold onto The bitterness we taste in sin the sweetness we shall taste in Christ Watson, Thomas 2012 09 02 The Doctrine of Repentance Kindle Loca [...]

    25. The theological depth of Watsons writing is profound, yet what is even striking is his wonderful ability to apply biblical truth practically to the lives of believers I would be content with half of his gifts in pastoral care Even now, nearly 400 years later, Watson s pastoral guidance is speaking into the lives of countless men and women His teaching on repentance is no exception from his standpoint and a loving pastor, he seeks to lay out a practical theology of repentance He expounds the nat [...]
