The Crook In The Lot: Or A Display Of The Sovereignty And Wisdom Of God In The Afflictions Of Men, And The Christian's Deportment Under Them (Classic Reprint)

Thomas Boston, the author of The Crook in the Lot, was born in the town of Diinse, Scotland, A. D. 1676, of respectable and religious parentage, and was the youngest of seven children. He was licensed to preach the Gospel in 1697, and was ordained at Simprin in 1699. In the year 1700 he married Catherine Brown, a lady of good family and rare endowments of mind; by her he had a number of children, four of whom survived him. He departed this life in the hope of a glorious immortality, A.D. 1732, in the 56th year of his age. In person, Mr. Boston was above the middle stature, and of a grave and amiable aspect. His mind was vigorous and fruitful; his imagination lively but under due restraint; his judgment solid; his affections warm and tender; and his whole demeanour courteous, obliging, and benevolent.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.

Thomas Boston's "The Crook in the Lot" opens up the Book of Eccesiastes in a way that Thomas Watson amplified Romans 8:28 in "All Things for Good" (nee, "The Divine Cordial"). Solid exposition of Scripture in a way that helps struggling believers today.

This work has been my constant companion for over 40 years and has been such a profound help in the midst of great trial along the way. Thank you for reproducing this marvelous ancient work.

Excellent book !
