This outstanding Puritan work by Andrew Gray is a compilation of five treatises. He wrote them for the spiritual encouragement of true believers in Jesus Christ, and to aid them in their journey towards blessedness in Christ. They are essays “tending to advance Gospel holiness and to establish the hearts of true believers against their many doubts and fears.” The first treatise contains arguments for leaving sin and living in a holy manner. The second treatise contains directions on how to attain eternal blessedness. The third treatise contains the characters of a true believer. The fourth treatise contains resolutions on the doubting Christian and lists a variety of “cases of conscience.” Lastly, treatise five contains the happiness and privileges of a true believer.

About the author

Andrew Gray (1634-1656) was, in his day, a most singular and pious young man; and though he died young, yet he was old in grace, having lived and done much for God 's Kingdom in a little time as a Reformed preacher. He was one of the most highly regarded Scottish divines of the “Second Reformation” and was also one of the youngest. Gray was twenty-two years old when he died of fever, but as noted by one of his biographers, “We may safely say that never in the history of our country did a man of his years make so deep a mark.”

The bible is filled with a theology of walking. This supernatural, and eminently important topic, is the substance of this discourse by master-exegete and preacher Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646). This work is laid out in a series of “rules” which demonstrate to the Christian what one looks like who in fact walks with God.

Burroughs’ main text is, “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” (Gen. 5:24). His main doctrine from this text is that it is the great excellency and commendation of a godly man to walk with God. Or, that it is the highest testimony that can be given that a man walks with God.

He covers how a person is brought to walk with God shown in six particulars. Then he defines, specifically, what it means to walk with God, and their extended excellencies, along with exhortations to both Christians and unbelievers as to their interest in walking with God. Then, he provides ten ways that show people in the church, and even people in the world, that a man is walking with God, or not. Lastly, he demonstrates biblical “rules” toward walking with God in the right manner.

The last chapter is actually an extra-added section that Burroughs decided he could not write this work without. That chapter is worth its weight in gold, and alone is worth the time of reading this volume. It houses the objection concerning the manner in which God sometimes may hide his face from his people for their good; though, at the time, it surely doesn’t feel as though desertion is a good thing. Burroughs covers being self-deceived in this, and answers various particulars concerning how to rightly judge whether one is actually walking with God in the right way, whether one is deserted by God, and whether such a desertion warrants repentance or just right thinking.
