In this book Watson (c. 1620-1686) continues his exposition of the Shorter Catechism drawn up by the Westminster Assembly.
Watson was one of the most popular preachers in London during the Puritan era... The series of three volumes, of which this is the second (the Body of Divinity is first and The Lord's Prayer third), makes an ideal introduction to Puritan literature.
There are few matters about which the Puritans differ more from present-day Christians than in their assessment of the importance of the ten commandments. The commandments, they held, are the first thing in Christianity which the natural man needs to be taught and they should be the daily concern of the Christian to the last.
In this book Watson examines the moral law as a whole as well as bringing out the meaning and force of each particular commandment.
In view of the important function of the law in Christian life and evangelism, this is a most valuable volume (backcover).
