The Word of God was given to the Church of Jesus Christ to disclose God's character, will, acts and plans. In the Word of God is found a host of different subjects that, when compiled, gives the reader the ability to know what God says on those subjects which are revealed in and through the holy Scriptures.
Subjects covered in this work range from the science of theology, to the doctrines of Scripture, of God, of man, of salvation, covenant theology, the person and work of Jesus Christ, the benefits of redemption, the Law of God and even eschatology, including the doctrines of heaven and hell.
This is a perfect primer for the new student of theology, or a refresher for those who want to study the marrow of systematic theology without needing to wade through other volumes which span thousands of pages.
The 1647 Westminster Confession of Faith is the most precise and theologically rich confession produced by the Christian Church. Though the Christian Church takes the whole Word of God alone as her only rule of faith, she must also frame and promote a statement of what she understands the Word of God to teach. Thus, the church of Jesus Christ, in contending for the faith once delivered to the saints, should rely on the BEST confession available. This is it!

Many today hold to what has become known as the Five Points of Calvinism, or the doctrines of grace. They comprise the five points of Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace and the Perseverance of the Saints. But did Augustine believe these same “Calvinistic” doctrines? Is Augustine’s theological view of sin, election, the death of Christ, regeneration and sanctification the same as the Reformers, the Puritans, or even those who hold to the Gospel of Grace today? This work is a survey of that question and demonstrates from Augustine’s works that he was, undoubtedly, a Calvinist.

This book is a lesson to help children understand the bible’s teaching of justification, and the work that Jesus Christ accomplished on behalf of his people (in theology this is called Christ’s imputation to believers). Most adults have a difficult time understanding justification and imputation. In this easy to understand story, both parents and children alike will see what it means to be justified by God through the blood of Jesus Christ through the eyes of a little girl. “Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.” (Rom. 5:9). “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7).
It also has listed at the end of the story a study aid to help parents teach their children the major themes found in the book.

The purpose of the workbook is to come into a deeper knowledge and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ as he has revealed himself to the church in his Word and by his Spirit through the centuries in Reformed Theology. The workbook covers logic, hermeneutics, theology, creeds and confessions, covenant theology, worship, the sovereignty of God, the solas of the reformation, the doctrines of grace, church government, and much, much more. It extensively quotes the early church fathers, the Reformers, the Puritans, and Reformed theologians from various ages in order to aid the Reformed Apprentice in coming to a knowledge of what truly constitutes Reformed Theology and the Reformed Faith.
This workbook is not to be completed in a short timeframe, nor is it governed by a specific amount of time. The Reformed Apprentice has as much time to complete each section at their own pace as they need in order to walk more closely with Jesus Christ.
The reading of Puritan works has brought great benefit to the people of God across barriers of culture and time. Christians owe a great debt of gratitude to those faithful theologians, pastors and preachers who continue to speak through their writings even though they have long since entered into their heavenly rest in Christ. In these pages, the reader will find that Mr. Watson knew how to teach and apply God’s Word in the power of the Holy Spirit, and for the glorification of Jesus Christ, while maintaining a solid biblical orthodoxy needed in our day and age.
The purpose of this book is to open a door to the vast stores of biblical treasure and wisdom to be found in his writings and that it will stimulate further reading from his available works.
