The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-10)

The Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-10)

The opening verses of the best-known of all Christ's sermons were
handled by many of the Puritans, for the Beatitudes gave full scope to the
combination of sound doctrine, practical wisdom and heart-searching application
which characterized their preaching.

To these general Puritan characteristics, Thomas Watson added certain
of his own: a master of a terse, vigorous style and of a beauty of expression,
he could speak not only to win men's under-standing but also to secure a
place for the truth in their memories. More than most of his generation he
sought to follow the example of Christ's teaching by employing all manner
of illustrative material from common life, and with simplicity and charm he
spoke words not easy to forget.

Two hundred years after Thomas Watson's death, William Jay of
Bath said that he could go to any one of his books and 'find it ever
fresh, pointed and instructive.'

The Beatitudes, first published in 1660, used to be one of the rarest
of Watson's works. This clothbound edition largely follows the revised
format of the Trust’s first edition of 1971, with some additional
editorial notes.
