The Guard of the Tree of Life, A Discourse on the Sacraments

BySamuel Bolton

Samuel Bolton, D.D. (1606-1654) was a Westminster divine and Puritan scholar, and has been praised by many of contemporaries as a great reformed preacher as well as a humble Christian. This rare work by Bolton is what he calls a sacramental discourse on sanctifying God’s name in the coming to and participation in (particularly) of the Lord’s Supper; though his exposition is applicable to any of God’s ordinances. From Leviticus 10:3, Bolton explains three key doctrines: 1. That they who have anything to do with any ordinance of God, draw near to God. 2. That they who draw near to God in any ordinance, must sanctify God in it. 3. That if we do not sanctify God in an ordinance, he will be sanctified on us. Bolton makes application of how faith works, how repentance works and how to have a holy reverence of God and his ordinances. This is not a scan or facsimile, and has been updated in modern English for easy reading. It also has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
