Thomas Goodwin

Thomas Goodwin (1600-1680)

Thomas Goodwin is often referred to as, “The Readable Puritan.” He was one of the seventeenth century’s most prolific writers, who brought an inspiring balance of exhortation and tenderness to his scholarly expositions. He was born in Norfolk, England, in 1600. By 1620 Goodwin had graduated from Cambridge, he had been elected a fellow thereof, and he was licensed as a Cambridge University preacher. Years later, he served as Chaplain to Oliver Cromwell in 1656. Goodwin was a member and commissioner of the Westminster Assembly. He and his colleague, John Owen, often team-preached at Oxford University, and by 1658, together they had completed their work on the amended Westminster Confession. It was his firm conviction and sincere love of Christ that distinguished this influential theologian. Thomas Goodwin’s ministry had a broad impact over the course of his lifetime and it continues today, well into this twenty-first century, through his Christ-exalted writings.

About “The Heart of Christ in Heaven Towards Sinners on Earth”


Blue Letter Bible is privileged to present this digital edition of Thomas Goodwin’s, The Heart of Christ in Heaven Towards Sinners on Earth, first published in 1651. This exposition of Christ’s compassion for his people would soon become one of Goodwin’s most popular works.


“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.” (Hebrews 4:15.)

Goodwin states:


Though Christ is now in glory, do not let that discourage you, for he has the heart of a husband towards you, being betrothed to you forever in faithfulness and in loving-kindness. …Take this as one incentive to obedience: that if he retained the same heart of mercy towards you which he had here on earth, then to answer his love, endeavor to have the same heart towards him on earth which you hope to have in heaven.

Thomas Goodwin shows from Scripture how Christ, now in his heavenly majesty, remains compassionate toward his people. His tender affections and steadfast love for all believers are as strong today, as when he washed the disciples’ feet. Equally as humbling is Christ’s heart toward us in our afflictions and our sins! This book serves to draw our attention away from self and love of sin, focusing our attention on our much-needed knowledge of Christ our Savior.
