Wise Sayings of Thomas Watson
This collection contains well over 750 quotes, arranged in 48 subjects. All quotes are taken directly from the works of Thomas Watson. Thomas Watson had a gift to explain Scriptural truth in simple language. Some examples are: “Jesus Christ is a lily of the valley, not of the mountains.” “He shed his tears—for those who shed his blood!” “They can trust God’s heart—where they cannot trace his hand.” “Christ is never sweet, until sin is bitter!” “A proud man complains that he has no more; a humble man wonders that he has so much.” Gathered together for the first time, this extensive collection will provide many hours of contemplation.
