Apr 20, Michaelpatrick Keena rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: those who understand John Shelves: christian-theology. How in the world can there be too much written about God? With all the books written about Him, we have yet to scratch the serface of the topic. Sorry prof, my hat's off to Mr. Charnock and his classic work. Remember, we are going to spend eternity getting to know Him!
Jan 24, Deva Williamson rated it it was amazing. Aside from The Bible, this book is the most moving of all that I have read. The pictures painted and the beautiful language to describe our Creator is nothing short of awesome! I recommend this book to all who choose to live this life by faith and not sight, while we eagerly await the day of redemption. This was an amazing book which discusses in a logical flow of thoughts the existence of God, and the untenability of maintaining an atheistic worldview.
Some of his arguments are slightly dated, but others are extremely well thought out and worth repeating. I believe that anyone would benefit from reading this book at least once in their lives. Dec 09, Darby Hughes rated it liked it Shelves: theology. I read most of volume 1 of 2 , but just couldn't continue.
I love Puritan works, I've read dozens, and even another by Charnock. Part of it, I know, is a historical difference between the way we approach subjects compared to the Puritans, but to me this was "death by details. Charnock seems to have set the goal to say everything that could possibly be said about the subject. The doctrine itself was biblically sound, apart from some outda I read most of volume 1 of 2 , but just couldn't continue. The doctrine itself was biblically sound, apart from some outdated philosophical arguments presented in the "Existence of God," section.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! Sep 30, Tom rated it it was amazing Shelves: apologetics , puritans , reformed , theology. 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. For a book This was my first time reading anything by Charnock so I wasn't prepared for the depth of the topics covered in this book.
For a book of its time, it is definitely readable. Apr 03, James Mcentire rated it liked it. I have the two volume set in one volume. I actually have only read the first volume and finished that 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: , christian , non-fiction , did-not-finish. 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.

John MacArthur and Charnock’s The Existence and Attributes of God
Its daunting size often puts off readers, even though the time and effort given to it is more than repaid. This abbreviated version much longer than our usual Book Summary but covering both volumes of Charnock does not do justice to the work, but we trust you will find it profitable also as an introduction to this most important topic of study. Stephen Charnock was an influential Puritan minister whose writings are still read today. Ever want to consider them further? If so, you will struggle to find a more in-depth and pastoral treatment of them than what Charnock presents.
