Book Review: Particular Redemption (John Hurrion)

Review by Thomas Eglinton

GRAPHIC Particular Redemption

John Hurrion (c.1675-1731) was a Nonconformist minister who worked in Norfolk and then London. He prepared four sermons on Particular Redemption which he turned into lectures for a publication, edited by Abraham Taylor, which came out in 1732, a year after Hurrion’s death. In fact, Hurrion’s deteriorating health meant that he only ever preached the first two of these sermons, but the last two must have been almost ready because Taylor denied making any alterations. In true Puritan style, they were all based on one text: Titus 2:14.

John Elias wrote the preface to this publication, and declared: “The doctrine presented and defended here is of the greatest import. It contains the sum and substance of the gospel.” Few evangelicals today would write in such terms but they would do well to work through Hurrion’s thorough treatment of the subject. Hurrion deals with almost every conceivable objection, and shows us that Christ came to save, not just to make salvation possible. The result is a work that is clear, comprehensive and convincing
