For the past few years I’ve been curious about the conscience – specifically how the Bible defines it and its role or purpose in the Christian life. Because I’ve been thinking about this for a while, I’ve kept a list of resources on the conscience. Whenever I’ve read a book and it mentioned the conscience, I wrote it down. In case anyone else is interested in this topic, I’ll put the references below (in no particular order). You’ll notice that many of these references, though not all, are from the Puritans. And it’s not because I’ve read more Puritan works than others, it’s simply because the Puritans discussed the conscience quite frequently. Since some of these books have been published by different companies, I linked the editions that I used (and gave the page numbers for).
Other references on the conscience include the confessions (especially the Westminster Standards), Calvin’s Institutes, and commentaries on those Scripture texts that talk about the conscience (mostly in the NT). Obviously this list is very brief, but hopefully some might find it helpful. And, as always, feel free to chime in on resources on this topic you have found helpful.
