What to expect

Originally published in 1737, The Crook in the Lot continues to bring comfort and inspire countless souls, and it remains one of the most beloved of all Puritan classics. Its depth of explanation regarding God’s role in our afflictions and sufferings is without equal.

Thomas Boston—a well-known, influential, and beloved Puritan—was famous for his ability to communicate sound biblical truths in a way that conveyed clarity and insight. In this Puritan classic, he not only reveals a theological understanding of the problem of pain and suffering but also preaches from tangible experience; Boston himself had problems in life that caused him great physical and emotional pain.

This short but powerful treatise remains deeply relevant today.

“The pure biblical wisdom of The Crook in the Lot is badly needed by many of us, and so I am delighted that is being made available.”
