The Poor Doubting Christian Drawn to Christ

Book Number: 
Thomas Hooker (1586-1647), puritan pastor in New England

This short puritan treatise has been a source of great help to many, as well as to myself, when feeling far from God, during his chastening and discipline of me. It is not for presumptuous, but repentant sinner.
In the Britannia short biography it says, "Thomas never forgot the true source of his salvation and his success in ministry. As he lay dying, someone said to him, 'Sir, you are going to receive the reward of all your labours.' Thomas looked at him and replied, 'Brother, I am going to receive mercy.' "

Condition of Used Books

  • As New is self-explanatory. It means that the book is in the state that it should have been in when it left the publisher.
  • Fine (F or FN) is As New but allowing for the normal effects of time on an unused book that has been protected. A fine book shows no damage.
  • Very Good (VG) describes a book that is worn but untorn. For many collectors this is the minimum acceptable condition for all but the rarest items.
  • Good (G) is (as an old bookselling joke has it) not very good. It is used to describes the condition of an average used worn book that is complete.
  • Fair shows wear and tear but all the text pages and illustrations or maps are present. It may lack endpapers, half-title, and even the title page.
  • Poor describes a book that has the complete text but is so damaged that it is only of interest to a buyer who seeks a reading copy. If the damage renders the text illegible then the book is not even poor.
  • Reprint is a newly-made photocopied reprint. The binding will vary depending on the size of the book. These reprints are made as a service to the body of Christ and the price is only to cover the cost of production.
