Sep 30, Tom rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was my first time reading anything by Charnock so I wasn’t prepared for the depth of the topics covered in this book. The initial chapter presents transcendental apologetical arguments that would be still valid today, indicating that atheists have no argument that hasn’t already been dealt with.
The subsequent chapters cover just a few of God’s perfections in great detail. In typical Puritan fashion, Charnock covers these topics with equal parts doctrine and pastoral application.

The doctrine itself was biblically sound, apart from some outdated philosophical arguments presented in the “Existence of God,” section. Those were interesting to come across, though!

The Existence and Attributes of God
I actually have only read the first volume and finished attributea up over a year ago. But I needed to move on to other more relevant material.
Maybe I can get to the second volume at a later date. Apr 02, Sydney rated it did not like it Shelves: I couldn’t stand reading this book. I’m sure Charnock probably had some good things to say, but I can’t get past his thoughts on atheists. He’s clearly not a man who struggled with doubt – bully for him. But I think it’s ridiculous to talk down to those who do struggle.
