May Book Review: The Crook in the Lot by Thomas Boston

May Book Review: The Crook in the Lot by Thomas Boston

We may think that biblical counseling is something new on the scene – Thomas Boston proves otherwise as he, along with many other puritans brought practical application of the Word to the trials the flock faced in their day. He also wrote several works that profoundly impacted the common people among whom he ministered. One of those books is, The Crook in the Lot.  The purpose of the book is to help you face affliction with faith (“not by sense”) and to properly interpret suffering and trials through the lens of Scripture and the redeeming work of Christ.
