The Mischief of Sin by Thomas Watson


In stock

Soli Deo Gloria.  lfpb.  176pp.

This treatise by the renowned Puritan Thomas Watson was originally published in 1671 and never again until this edition. It was one of his rarest works for over three centuries. Watson’s perceptive discussion on the devastating effects of sin includes four parts:

1. The Mischief of Sin

2. The Desperateness of Sinners

3. An Alarm to Sinners

4. Hell’s Furnace Heated Hotter

Appended is a scarce treatment by Watson, “The Mystery of the Lord’s Supper.”

Thomas Watson (ca. 1620–1686) graduated from Cambridge University and became one of the leading Puritan minsters of London.



“This book enriched and expanded my own understanding of sin and grace beyond anything I could have anticipated. You cannot read it and remain indifferent toward sin in your own life. Few books have more moved me as this one did.” — John MacArthur

“No Christian teacher ever saw the ugliness, folly, destructiveness, aggravations, and provocations of sin more clearly than the Puritans did. And no Puritan ever expressed these insights more piercingly than Thomas Watson.” — J. I. Packer
