“There is no question but every spiritual believing Jew, when he brought his sacrifice to be offered, and, according to the Lord's command, laid his hands upon it whilst it was yet alive (Lev. 1:4), did, from his heart, acknowledge that he himself had deserved to die, but by the mercy of God he was saved, and his desert laid upon the beast; and as that beast was to die, and to be offered in sacrifice for him, so did he believe that the Messiah should come and die for him, upon whom he put his hands, that is, laid all his iniquities by the hand of faith.”
The Marrow of Modern Divinity was a scandal when it was first presented to the reading public in the mid-17th century. In this book, Edward Fisher wrote under the pseudonym "E.F." boldly proclaiming the Calvinistic doctrines of grace and the free offer of the gospel. Most accented of the themes is his treatment of unconditional election–over and against the throes of legalism and antinomianism of his day. Take up this book and find out just how liberating the doctrines of grace can be!
This edition contains the original two-part work with Thomas Boston's notes, the appendix and an active table of contents.
