‘If there is one book that more than any other stands out as representative of the best of our Scottish religious classics it is Human Nature in its Fourfold State.’ — JOHN MACLEOD

Book Description

It is evident why Boston’s work enjoyed such popularity.  So basic is his material, and so thorough his presentation of it, the Human Nature in its Fourfold State speaks to the spiritual needs of every reader.  For those who ask about the origin and meaning of human existence, Boston provides the biblical answer; for those who are confused about the Christian gospel, Boston explains its meaning and its power.

  1. Ken Bissell

    This book has been immensely helpful to my spiritual growth and comfort. Written in that beautifully Puritan pastoral style, yet pointed in it’s clear theology. He keeps us humbly before our righteous Savior as we examine ourselves to see if we are truly in Christ, and as I need to hear, he does not let me go astray in imaginings. Thank you Mr. Boston and Banner of Truth.
