In the previous post about Chapter 1 we looked at the first two of Thomas Brooks’ “proofs” – his introductory thoughts that will drive the content of the rest of this book, Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices. Now we come to the third proof, which features the shortest explanation of the three. Brooks’ quotation of Revelation 2:24 is instructive. We must explore this entire passage to better understand his reasons for borrowing the words of Christ given to the apostle John on the island of Patmos late in the first century.
Thomas Brooks liked to write an “epistle dedicatory” in his books. What are they exactly? We use the one in Precious Remedies as an example.
