The Works of William Perkins, volume 10
Reformation Heritage Books - 2020. d.w. 536pp.
This tenth volume brings together seven treatises that demonstrate Perkins’s core conviction that the gospel touches all of life by bringing it under the rule of Scripture.
Treatise on How to Live Well in All Estates opens the volume with a description of the reign of faith in Christians’ hearts so that they avoid sin and pursue the will of God in all they do.
Treatise on Vocations explains how God calls Christians to live out their faith in whatever responsibilities they hold within society.
Right Manner of Erecting and Ordering a Family applies the concept of vocation to life in the home.
Calling of the Ministry applies vocation to the church, describing the duties and dignities of the ministers of Christ.
Art of Prophesying equips those called to the ministry with the proper manner and method of preaching God’s Word.
Christian Equity exhorts Christians to maintain justice and preserve peace, whether in families, church, or the greater commonwealth.
Having finished with principles of living by faith, the volume ends with Treatise on Dying Well, which discusses the importance of faith at the end of life.
