The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment

$ 8.50

Jeremiah Burroughs's writings, some published before and others after his death, were numerous, but The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment is one of the most valuable of them all. The author wanted to promote peace among believers of various "persuasions," and to bring peace and contentment into the hearts of individual believers during what he describes as "sad and sinking times." The Rare Jewel concentrates upon this second aim. It is marked by clarity, aptness of illustration, and warmth of appeal to the heart. "There is an ark that you may come into, and no men in the world may live such comfortable, cheerful and contented lives as the saints of God." Burroughs presses his lesson home with all the fervor and cogency of a true and faithful minister of God.
