8. Thomas Goodwin

By Michael Reeves

In this lesson, we will move from the big picture of England under James I and Charles I to studying another individual, Thomas Goodwin (1600–1680). Unfortunately, very few people have even heard of Goodwin, even though at one time he was considered a high-calibre theologian and was once called the greatest pulpit exegete of Paul who ever lived.

Dr. Reeves attests that Goodwin should be a household name, but his challenging writings help to explain why he’s not well remembered. Yet, these writings always pay back the reader for the effort spent in reading them. Goodwin had a remarkable theological intellect wedded with the very tender heart of a pastor.
