The Works of Abraham Booth - Volume 2

Early Theological Works (1768-1777)

Edited by Zachary K. Williams

"The early soteriological works contained in this volume include two important treatises: The Reign of Grace (1768, heavily revised in 1771), and its companion volume, The Death of Legal Hope (1770). These works, which address key theological issues related to man’s salvation and sanctification, are undoubtedly some of Booth’s finest, and we are pleased to see them in print again. The present volume also contains two appendices. The first of these is Booth’s preface to an English edition of James Abbadie’s (c. 1654-1727) work The Deity of Jesus Christ, originally published in French as Traité de la divinité de Jesus-Christ (1689). . . . The second appendix contains Henry Venn’s original advertisement to the first edition of The Reign of Grace. Although not written by Booth himself, this document provides important background to the course of Booth’s life and ministry." - from the Editor’s Introduction.

Two more volumes of Booth’s works are planned. Volume Three will contain Booth’s later theological works, including Glad Tidings to Perishing Sinners (1796) and Divine Justice Essential to the Divine Character (1804), which relate to debates between Booth and fellow Baptist Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) on the nature of saving faith and the nature of atonement. Additionally, Volume Three will contain some of Booth’s posthumous essays, as well as some select letters which have never been published. Finally, Volume Four will contain two of Booth’s key works on the church: namely, his treatise An Apology for the Baptists (1778), and his Essay on the Kingdom of Christ (1788). As these volumes are released in the coming years, it is our sincere hope that they will be a valuable resource to scholars, ministers, and laypeople alike.
