Marrow of Modern Divinity

by Edward Fisher


The Marrow of Modern Divinity (1645) by Edward Fisher was at the center of a controversy in the Scottish Church. Fisher attempted to find a common, acceptable middle ground between legalism and antinomianism. The book is Fisher's idea of a conversation that could be held between a young Christian, a minister of the Gospel, a staunch legalist, and a practicing antinomian. The book was reviewed by Scottish church leaders who deemed it unacceptable and banned its reading. Thomas Boston believed the book had merit and had the book republished. Boston's notes are found in this edition.
