First edition. Octavo, , 481 pages.

This represents the largest sermon series delivered by John Cotton and is on the quintessential Puritan topic, the conversion process. It is based on sermons given during the years 1627-30. The emphasis on conversion in the hands of God rather than the heart of the sinner, gave rise to the Antinomian Crisis during Cotton's early years in New England.
