    I am debating between working my way through Thomas Boston's 12 volumes or Ralph and Ebenezer Erskine's combined works. Thus far, I have only skipped around each. I am leaning towards Boston. For those that have read through the Brothers Erskine, what stood out to you? Was there a particular volume that you particularly enjoyed, and why? I pose the same question to those that have read Boston. It always a big decision choosing what set to read next. I typically overthink it.

    I have the works of all three and they are all wonderful. But without hesitation, I'd say Boston.

    In my opinion, Thomas Boston is the better of the two authors. Nonetheless, given that Ebenezer Erskine's works are 3 volumes as opposed to 12, it may be better to work your way through them first.
