Here's an excerpt of what he said: . .Stephen Charnock, a 17th century Puritan theologian, pulls together all of Holy Scripture that addresses each of the attributes of God (sovereignty, power, wisdom, omniscence, eternity, holiness, goodness, dominion, patience).

These volumes are his abiding monument. They are worthy of being compared with the finest in theology. When the existence and attributes of God are called into question, to whom else can we better go than to Stephen Charnock''. 'those things revealed belong to us and to our children forever]

Stephen Charnock (1628–1680) was a Cambridge graduate, Presbyterian clergyman, Puritan theologian . The subsequent chapters cover just a few of God's perfections in great detail. I have the two volume set in one volume.

Stephen Charnock (1628–1680) was a Cambridge graduate, Presbyterian clergyman, Puritan theologian, and chaplain to Oliver Cromwell. Virtually none of his writings were published until after his death. The Existence and Attributes of God" is remembered as Puritan's definitive contribution to theology proper. In typical Puritan fashion, Charnock covers these topics with equal parts doctrine and pastoral application.

Stephen Charnock (1628-1680) was educated at Cambridge University after which he lectured at Oxford University. He was appointed chaplain to the Governor of Ireland, Oliver Cromwell's son Henry in 1655, where he soon gained a reputation for preaching. In 1675, years after the fall of Oliver Cromwell's Commonwealth, Charnock became a Presbyterian Minister in London. His works, mostly published posthumously, have the characteristic Puritan concern for central gospel themes and consistent application of Biblical texts to practical problems.

The Existence and Attributes of God comprises the first two volumes of the works of Stephen Charnock (1628-1680), an English puritan divine who was highly skilled in philosophy, patristics, Reformed theology, and Biblical languages. These volumes are his abiding monument. They are worthy of being compared with the finest in theology. "When the existence and attributes of God are called into question, to whom else can we better go than to Stephen Charnock'' . . . ''those [things revealed belong to us and to our children forever]. The material that Charnock discusses is firmly founded in the Word of God'' . . . ''Both the Old Testament and the New emphasize these two things: First, we should study the whole revelation, not just some easy or favorite parts of it; secondly, the study of God's attributes is not dry as dust theology, but is practical; that is, it leads to righteousness" (Dr. Gordon H. Clark, from a preface to this great work in a Sovereign Grace edition, 1958). One of the greatest tragedies in these spiritually starved times is the sad fact that most Christians know so very little about their God. It is often said that this is simply because these volumes are exhaustive on the subject. Yet it is clearly filled with sublime expositions of the truth regarding God's existence and attributes. "Charnock displays God's attributes not as impersonal abstractions for the mind to juggle with, but as qualities observable in the concrete actions of the living God of which the Bible speaks. The technical terms and sometimes, arguments of scholastic theology are employed, but always with a Biblical orientation. Charnock has no desire to speculate, but only to declare the works and ways, the nature and character, of the God of the Bible. The substance of his doctrine is characteristically Puritan and representatively Reformed." (Dr. James I. Packer, in The Encyclopedia of Christianity, Volume II, p. 410) The possessor of these rare volumes will be blessed by getting acquainted with the incomparable God, and thereby will reach a higher plane of spiritual enjoyment never attained before. To know Him better is to love Him more.

I don't know what to say, I'm still reading. It is very comprehensive, not something to just read through. It will take some thinking as you along. It is a very high view of God and comes from a reformed understanding of the scripture. It is helping me understand the nature of God in a much deeper way. It is a very large work, but very much worth the read.

This is a masterpiece! In this work we can delve into some of the attributes of God. Charnock is not a man of few words, and that is a positive fact in this book. Our great God cannot be understood nor described by a few words. He goes deep in the study of God and it is a blessing to learn even more about God's character through his work. Every Christian should read this book. I used it on a Sunday School Class along other material such as "Our Awesome God" by John Macarthur and "The Attributes of God" by Steve Lawson (Teaching Series from Ligonier Ministries).

I once heard a very godly man discussing the five books, other than the Bible, that had impacted him the most. At the top of his list was Stephen Charnock's The Existence and Attributes of God. Here's an excerpt of what he said: "...I think the first book—and I say this because it had such a profound impact on me—would be Steven Charnock’s The Existence and Attributes of God. I didn’t grow up in a Reformed environment. When I discovered Reformed theology, it was in Charnock. I didn’t know it was possible to have that many thoughts about God...It is inexhaustible." Soli Deo Gloria!

Criticism of the accuracy of this version are greatly exaggerated. Yes, there are some typos, but they are neither excessive nor all that distracting. I love e-books because it is easy to take notes from them. When you consider what the person providing this book had to do in checking a 1,000+ pages for errors and, then, selling it for a mere pittance, the presence of scattered errors, that are not difficult to discern and ignore, are nothing to hinder anyone from buying it. I heartily thank the publisher for making my work with Charnock a whole lot easier.

This book written so long ago remains a Christian Classic. Charnock brilliantly expounds the attributes of God and should be a must read for any serious student of the Word of God. It took a while for me to plow through this book but was well worth my time and I graciously recommend it for your reading pleasure.

With the Scriptures being the authoritative text over everything, I will, without hesitation, say that this is THE authoritative text written by a man on the subjecsts of the existence and attributes of God. You will not find another book on the same level as this one anywhere.
If you do not mind reading 17th century English, and you have not read this, you are missing out on a monumental work.

Stephen Charnock, a 17th century Puritan theologian, pulls together all of Holy Scripture that addresses each of the attributes of God (sovereignty, power, wisdom, omniscence, eternity, holiness, goodness, dominion, patience). In logical and deductive fashion he expounds on the Scripture to reveal how His attributes are manifested and what man's response should be. The response of man to all of God's attributes should be worship and praise. Charnock exposes the true nature and heart of man and his place in God's creation (as a creature) as set apart from the animals (brutes) for the express purpose of recognizing God in His creation and our need and obligation to worship and praise Him. He exposes in honest and forthright fashion man's great responsibility for sin, his lack of reverence to God, his half-hearted worship, his desire to be like a God, his depravity. However, the longest discourse in this two volume set is on the Goodness of God, one of His attributes that man in his fallen state conveniently forgets at times. How good is God to give us a redemption that allows us to have a restored innocence through an immutable source, His Son Jesus Christ; a state that Adam (and man) had he remained innnocent would never have. There would always be a distance between Adam and God. Through Christ we have access to our Sovereign God and Creator. These discourses magnify your understanding of God in Scripture, puts man in his place in regards to His Creator, and has drawn me to a more true and closer relationship to the Trinity. This is a most profound work and has quite literally blown me away. Stephen Charnock would be an additional guest at my table along with the apostle Paul if I had the chance to have dinner with any two people who ever walked on this earth. Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from the heavens; Praise Him in the heights!
I have not completed my reading of this book. What I have read so far has challenged my thinking and dropped me to my knees in prayer. Stephen Charnock gives an excellent treatment and response to "practical atheism." I cannot wait to continue read and ponder the rest of the book. It's provocative reading. So far, I would list this book as recommended reading for any serious Christian!
