Great Sermon! Having been very much uplifted and informed by this first message I look forward to the next two. Are details of the conference at which they were preached given anywhere?
MARROW CONTROVERSY BOOKS! SWRB has published the following two books related to this series of messages, see http://www.swrb.com/catalog/b. htm
1.The Marrow of Modern Divinity - Jeremiah Burroughs states,"If thou wilt pursue this little book, thou shalt find great worth in it." First printed in 1645, this controversial book was read in 1700 by Thomas Boston and had a profound influence on his ministry. Boston added copious notes to this edition, which was reprinted in 1718. His notes, which are often longer than the text by Fisher, are an invaluable addition to this work. Its contents are largely taken from the works of the Reformers and English Puritans. Three members of the Westminster Assembly wrote recommendations to the Marrow.
2. Gospel Truth Accurately Stated and Illustrated... Occasioned by the Republication of the Marrow of Modern Divinity (1827) - "Considered to be the best account in a small compass of the Marrow controversy," stated Cairns (cf. Johnston, Treasury of the Scottish Covenant, p. 486).
In addition to being Senior Minister, Dr. Ferguson is Professor of Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary. A graduate of the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, he is the author of some two dozen books, has authored numerous articles and has contributed to various symposia....
