Thomas Boston (17 March 1676 – 20 May 1732) was a Scottish church leader, theologian and philosopher. Boston's autobiography is a record of Scottish life. His other books include Human Nature in Its Fourfold State, one of the religious classics of Scotland; The Crook in the Lot, a short book noted for its originality; and his Body of Divinity and Miscellanies. These works had a major influence over the Scottish peasantry. Among his works is a learned treatise on Hebrew points. His Memoirs were published in 1776 (ed.

In his famous book, Human Nature in Its Fourfold State, the Scottish Puritan, Thomas Boston (1676–1732) teaches us that the four states of human nature are: (a) Primitive Integrity; (b) Entire Depravity; (c) Begun Recovery.

Shelves: non-fiction, religion, philosophy. A staggering achievement in theological study and religious philosophy, Scottish theologian Thomas Boston set out to analyze human nature from a purely Christian perspective. I actually think the church goers get it worse than the atheists in this book. So few will readily admit, paraphrasing Boston, that they may engage in all the outward duties of religion, and yet not be born again. The life of every man (in his natural state) is essentially a continued dream out of which he never awakes.

Lo, this only have I found, that God has made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions. 7:29 There are four things very necessary to be known by all who would see heaven: 1. What man was in the state of innocence, as God made him. 2. What he is in the state of corrupt nature, as he has unmade himself.

'If there is one book that more than any other stands out as representative of the best of our Scottish religious classics it is Human Nature in its Fourfold State, ' says John Macleod in Some Favourite Books.

This book is one of the hundreds written by the English Puritans for the instruction and edification of Christians who love the Faith in all its Reformation glory and fullness. I consider it an essential book for all who wish to understand the foundational truths of the Bible regarding the status of mankind from Creation until entrance into Glory, i.e., Innocence, the Fall of Man, the believer's present state of Grace, and our final state in Heaven, including, of course, the concomitant rejection by God of those who will not receive His Son.

This is not a "quick read" as so many of today's productions are. It requires careful and thoughtful reading and meditation, but will surely reward the one dedicated to understanding the deep things of God.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Thomas Boston had incredible insight to the workings of the flesh and just how far it would go to earn salvation. If you don't read anywhere else read pages 268 - 279 and ask yourself if you have had this experience. I believe that real Christianity today is rare indeed and I believe when the Rapture of the Church takes place it will be so few that will be taken that it won't even make the headlines. Read these pages slowly and meditate on what he is saying and please let it speak to your heart like it did mine many years ago.

In my estimation, this discourse is among the Kindle e-book's "must read" category. Thomas Boston's (1676 -1732) understanding of the human nature in its fourfold state was, no doubt, influenced and in agreement with that same subject discussed in Chapter IX of the Westminster Confession of Faith (1647); Man in a state of innocence (IX, 2), Man in a fallen and sinful state (IX, 3), Man in a state of grace (IX, 4), and Man in a state of glory (IX, 5). This e-book entry provides a cogent development of this theological teaching. A few sample quotes include:

"In the way of the gospel, the sinner must stand before the Lord in an imputed righteousness--but corrupt nature is for an inherent righteousness; and, therefore, so far as natural men follow after righteousness, they follow after `the law of righteousness,' Romans 9:31, 32; and not after `the Lord our righteousness.'"

"The infinity of God makes infinite wrath the just demerit of sin. God is infinitely displeased with sin; and when he acts, he must act like himself, and show his displeasure by proportionable means."

These two quotes alone should encourage the reader to devour what follows in the book: those sections on the state of grace and the eternal state.
