RARE JEWEL OF CHRISTIAN CONTENTMENTJeremiah BurroughsJeremiah Burroughs was a preacher to the great congregations ofEngland in the 17th century. This classic book of his is concerned withpromoting the often elusive jewel of peace and contentment in theheart of the believer. 228 pages, from Banner of Truth.
Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646) belongs in the first rank of preachers & writers of the Puritan era. A graduate of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, like so many of his fellow-ministers, he fled to Rotterdam during the persecution brought about by Archbishop William Laud & ministered to the English congregation there. On his return from exile in 1641 he preached to two of the largest congregations in London at Stepney & Cripplegate & served in the Westminster Assembly, though he died prematurely before the work of the Assembly was complete. Burroughs showed a consistent concern to promote peace among Christian believers of differing views & contentment in the hearts of individual Christians. Based on the text I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content (Philippians 4:11), this exposition is directed to the second of these two aims. Burroughs describes true Christian contentment, shows how Christ teaches it, analyses the evils of a discontented spirit & shows how contentment can be obtained. This is timeless & helpful instruction to Christians of all ages.
We live our lives in a discontented world and it is all too easy for the Christian to share its spirit. This book remedies this spiritual disease in practical biblical ways.
Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646) was loved for his preaching and gentle spirit and was persecuted for his nonconformity to the Church of England. Feeling compelled to flee to Holland for a time, he eventually returned to England and preached to congregations in Stepney and Cripplegate in London, two of the largest congregations in England. He also served as a member of the Westminster Assembly until his death in 1646.
