In this profound book, first published in 1737, Thomas Boston offers clear advice on dealing with the "thorns" of life. Boston's book holds a special place among the tremendous amount of Puritan literature that was produced during the 17th and 18th centuries. In his time, Boston was renowned for his lucid expression and the ability to maintain clarity while conveying messages of great depth. Crook in the Lot is introduced to us by Evangelicalism's venerable "elder statesman" and promoter of "lost" Puritan classics, J.I. Packer. In an extensive prologue he shows how Boston's advice remains deeply relevant today. Boston was not preaching merely from his theological understanding, he was speaking from direct personal experience. Boston had real "thorns" to deal with himself, ranging from his wife's paralysing depression to his own experiences living for years with what were probably kidney stones. He brings his own unique combination of wonderfully profound and yet immensely practical advice to bear to give us a work of lasting impact.
