God’s Afflicting Providence, and Other Works

171 pages2 hours


Francis Roberts (1609-1675), was a Presbyterian and Reformed Calvinistic Puritan. He was an eminent theologian in his day and widely known for his works.

In these works Roberts is at his best. They cover the sanctification of the Christian in the providence of God, the Christian s contrite spirit, and the advantage of the Christian in life and death. They are some of the best works on these biblical subjects in print, and Roberts handles them with pastoral sensitivity and theological accuracy.

He teaches that God s dearest people may for a long time walk in darkness, yet at last refreshing consolation shall shine on them (Psalm 68:13). Secondly, he covers the gratefulness of true broken-heartedness for sin (Psalm 51:17). Thirdly, he shows that those who are in Christ have life and death as theirs (1 Cor. 3:21-23).
