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.
- Publisher

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.

5 stars By Joel Radford, Sep 22 2012
To discuss the subject of discontentment is vitally important, particularly in our day where the diagnosis of depression is sky rocketing all around us. Burroughs is not afraid to tell us that discontentment in a Christian is sinful and unacceptable. Yet he does not leave us hanging - rather Burroughs tells us real Scriptural solutions to the problem; solutions that we will never hear from popular psychologists.
