William Perkins (1558 – 1602) was a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and a famous Cambridge theologian. He was a celebrated divine who wrote voluminously on a number of important theological and practical topics including a number of works on God’s grace.
This treatise is an echo of Scripture teaching how God’s will and man’s will work in their respective spheres, and with each other working from his text, Matthew 23:37-38. This work is designed to humble the creature in realizing that God’s free grace is that which enables man to believe the Gospel. And it also teaches that man’s free will is actually a slave to his desires. Perkin’s covers the will of God looking at both God’s sovereignty and God’s good pleasure in light of Jerusalem’s unwillingness to repent. He also covers the will of man in four important areas: in the garden before the fall, after the fall, in light of and after regeneration, and glorified in heaven.
