Series description

Overview
Thomas Boston was a gifted preacher, a master of the biblical languages, an astute theologian, and an enormously influential Presbyterian minister. Jonathan Edwards called him “a truly great divine,” and Joel Beeke writes that “Boston’s sermons are models of sound exegesis combined with experiential piety and admonition.” Boston’s theologically rich and deeply pastoral writings make him essential for thinking Christians today.

The massive Whole Works of Thomas Boston contains 12 volumes of Boston’s writings—theological treatises, book-length works, discourses and sermons, memoirs and autobiographical material, and more. You’ll find the 1,300-page Illustration of the Doctrines of the Christian Religion, hundreds of sermons, a lengthy explication of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, and the works for which Boston is best known, including The Crook in the Lot, Human Nature in Its Fourfold State, and much more. It also contains a volume on the theology of prayer. The final volume contains Boston’s biographical material. One biographer, writing of Boston’s memoirs, said that with the possible exception of Augustine’s Confessions, “it would be difficult to name any autobiography, in any language, which bears so unmistakably throughout the marks of simplicity and truth.”

Praise for the Print Edition
May God raise up servants in this third millennium of the Christian era motivated by that which made Boston such an effective ambassador of Christ: a humble spirituality, a high view of the Christian ministry, a compassionate zeal for souls, and unwearied preaching of Christ.
—Joel Beeke, president and professor of systematic theology, Church history, and homiletics, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

Series?!

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
