The Works of Thomas Ken presents the works of a famous scholar and chaplain during the late 1600s in England. This collection includes one of his most well-known works—the pamphlet Ichabod, otherwise known as The Five Groans of the Church—which Ken wrote a few years after his ordination. Eager to spread Christianity to others, he was an avid writer and teacher. His sermons, letters, hymns, and poems are also included, which cover temptation, judgment, resurrection, and more.

The Logos Bible Software edition of The Works of Thomas Ken is designed to enhance your study and understanding of Ken’s work. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and original-language texts, and important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about judgment and resurrection.
