Summary: This book offers help and guidance in how to use the Word of God for evidence and assurance, and practical instructions in obtaining an interest in God's promises. Thomas Hooker (1586-1647), who was eventually to become the founder of Hartford, Connecticut, was the first rector of Esher, in Surrey, England. Francis Drake was his patron and benefactor there. Drake's wife was under the impression that she had committed the unpardonable sin and she could find no ease for her conscience or peace for her troubled mind until Thomas Hooker began to deal pastorally with her. This book came out of his successful efforts in dealing with Mrs. Drake's troubled soul. Codice inventario libreria

CHAPTER V. How shall a man be trained up, that he may get the skill of living by faith §* 1/'? VERY man hath his shifts and tricks, and S*#S lives by his own devices; and the devil hath enough of them in the world that live this life; but the best life of all is little looked after. Now for an answer, know thus much, that there are three particulars for the training up the heart to learn this skill of living by faith. 1. We must labour to get matter for our faith to work upon. 2. We must labour to fit faith for the work. 3. We must labour to order our faith aright in the work. I. First, we must provide matter for our faith to work upon. For this we see ordinarily, if a workman want mutter to work upon, either a carpenter or the like ; he must needs cease his work, and he can go no further. And if a man's work fails, how can he provide for his family? This is the complaint of poor people now-a-days, that they have no work. So it is in a Christian's course; many poor Christians that are newly set up, and are not aforehandin the world, they want even matter for their faith. I mean some are ignorant and cannot read, and some have not means of a preaching-ministry, others have but small parts and cannot hear, and little do they retain of what they do hear. The promises of God are not understood, nor remembered, nor rightly applied. They live marvellously poor, when they might live very comfortably in the world. Now the matter of our faith, is the whole word of God. As the spider gathers poison out of every flower; so the bee gathers honey out of the same flowers, and out of the sweetest flower she sucks the most honey. Oh the word of God, how full of sweet flowers is it! There, the sharpest terrors, and the most fearful plagues too. A gracious heart will gather sweetness out o...
L'autore: Thomas Hooker (1586-1647)
Rev. Thomas Hooker was born in Leicestershire, England on July 7, 158. He was educated at Queen's College, Cambridge, and later at Emmanuel College, "the nursery of the Puritans," as it was called. He received both the B.A. and M.A. degrees. He ministered in Chelmsford, Essex for a time, where he was very popular with the other ministers, and distinguished himself for comforting afflicted and doubting souls. Fleeing Archbishop William Laud's persecution of those with Puritan leanings, Hooker went first to Holland, where he preached in Amsterdam for two years, and then sailed for New England in 1633. He settled first in Boston, and then removed to Hartford, from which place he was actively and conspicuously involved in all the major political and theological issues and debates of his day, including the antinomian controversy with Anne Hutchinson. He died in July 1647; his death was mourned as a public calamity.
