In this work the puritan Richard Sibbes, author of ‘The Bruised Reed’, shows how God “sets us at liberty at the first in calling us…sets us at liberty when we are justified…sets us at liberty when he sanctifieth us…sets us then at liberty fully in glorification.”
In the 1650s, historic Christianity in England was challenged by Socinianism. This heretical system was to a large extent based on Arianism, which had plagued the ancient church. Owen wrote his Vindiciæ Evangelicæ after being commissioned by the Council of State to refute Socinianism. In it he deals with the writings of John Biddle, ‘the father of English Socinianism,’ Hugo Grotius, the famous Dutch statesman and philosopher (who was not an avowed Socinian) and the Racovian Catechism, which was associated with Socinus himself.

Thomas Watson (1620-1686) was Thomas Watson is one of the most famous Puritan preachers in history, and his writings during the 17th century are still read across the world today. He was an English, Nonconformist, Puritan preacher and author. He was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, where he was noted for remarkably intense study. Based on Philippians 4:11, “I have learned, in whatever state I am therewith to be content”, Watson considers the great dishonor done to almighty God by the sin of discontent. The doctrine of Christian contentment is clearly illustrated and profitably applied. The special cases where, through changes in providences, discontentment most commonly arises are examined and preservatives are applied to the soul. This is one of Watson’s most treasured works and shares equal billing with Jeremiah Burrough’s classic The Rare Jewel of Christian Continent. It was first published in a lithograph of a 19th-century edition, but the publishers were compelled to retype that work and publish it in an entirely new book so as to give an even broader readership
