    This book was on Spurgeon s wish list and I m so glad he wrote about it and thankful it s been reprinted It was originally called Religion Our True Interest Or Practical Notes upon the Third Chapter of Malachy, the Sixteen, Seventeen and Eighteen Verses but reprinted by Banner of Truth as The Great Gain of Godliness The book was first printed in 1682 and it appears to have not been reprinted until 1992 My copy was printed in 2018 Definitely a great treasure to read from and rich preac This book was on Spurgeon s wish list and I m so glad he wrote about it and thankful it s been reprinted It was originally called Religion Our True Interest Or Practical Notes upon the Third Chapter of Malachy, the Sixteen, Seventeen and Eighteen Verses but reprinted by Banner of Truth as The Great Gain of Godliness The book was first printed in 1682 and it appears to have not been reprinted until 1992 My copy was printed in 2018 Definitely a great treasure to read from and rich preaching material for sure

    Wow What a firecracker of a book Watson takes his text from three verses toward the end of Malachi and preaches over 100 pages on it But the whole is comprised of numerous bite sized nuggets of truth and encouragement to the believer One could spend many months reading the book devotionally by taking daily a separate little exegetical portion one or two paragraphs and meditating on the truths therein This is a little book worth reading and then reading again.
