The Church's Need of Jesus Christ

156 pages2 hours


Thomas Valentine (1586-1665) was a popular puritan preacher and a devoted divine of the Westminster Assembly. This volume by Thomas Valentine comprises all his surviving but rare works.

There are three topics contained in this rare volume: “The Need to Come to Christ” (John 5:40), “The Need for Patience and Hope in Christ” (Zephaniah 3:8), and “The Need of Christ’s Wholesome Advice” (Revelation 3:18). Valentine spends a considerable time on the doctrine of the beatific vision – that the sinner saved by grace will live forever in heaven beholding the face of God in Jesus Christ in eternal delight. This portion of the book is worth reading in and of itself.

He shows Christ clearly in his work, his salvation, his office, his providence, his graces, his advice, his counsel, his beauty and his love for his people.
