William Perkins (1558-1602) was a Calvinist minister and theologian who was one of the foremost leaders of the Puritan movement in the Church of England.
This work was first published as “A Golden Chain, or A Description of Theology Containing the Order of the Causes of Salvation and Damnation.” Perkins covers who God is, His works in predestination and reprobation concerning fallen men, and what God requires of all men, including His church. This work is a unique systematic theology of sorts that mines out of the Bible a mountain of theological gold which Perkins forges into an unbreakable “Golden Chain” of salvation. It is focused on the work of Jesus Christ as God’s one and only Son and Redeemer, and God’s eternal redemptive plan found in the Covenant of Grace. This is a classic work not to be missed; and has been updated for the modern reader.
