Stephen Charnock (1628-1680) wrote what is considered to be the fullest treatment of the attributes of God, even though he did not live to complete the treatise. It is truly a biblical portrait of God drawn with a Puritan pen, rightly deserving its place among the best of Puritan productions and of English literature altogether. However, today's reader may find the 1146 pages a bit daunting. This summary presents the treatise in a more manageable form that maintains the theological depth and practical application of the original. Don’t miss out on the riches of Charnock!
“I think if Charnock were abridged by a skillful hand, it would be a valuable work.” -- DAVID KINGHORN, IN A LETTER TO HIS SON JOSEPH
