A Divine Cordial (All Things for Good)

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.8 stars; 50 reviews)

This book is an exposition of Romans 8:28: "We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." It was written in 1663, one year after Thomas Watson and many other Puritan ministers were forced out of their pulpits by the Act of Uniformity. Watson's book radiates comfort in the midst of suffering. Its content is equally applicable to Christians facing trials today. (Introduction by rosea) (4 hr 42 min)

(5 stars)

Excellent! Truthful genuine encouragement for each one that is In Christ. God’s glory be multiplied and live on through Thomas Watson. Listener, Please don’t be put off by the quotes from the apocrypha— look at it as if a quote is being made from another spiritual father such as Spurgeon. Thank you readers!

(4 stars)

some of the readers are of varying loudness, but other than that's it's a pretty good book. it comes from a reformed theology.

(5 stars)

Very humbling. Very inspiring. A great development of the electing grace of God and how it works in our lives.

A fitting title.

So profoundly comforting, convicting and is with sound doctrine. A classic by puritan Thomas Watson.

Great book. True food for the soul!
