Jeremiah Burroughs is worthily reckoned as belonging to the front rank of English puritan preachers. As such, he played a prominent part in the Westminster Assembly of divines, but died prematurely before the Assembly's work was concluded.
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. In it, Burroughs aims to promote peace and contentment in the hearts of individual believers: "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."?
This book is marked by sanity, clarity, aptness of illustration and warmth of appeal to the heart. Burroughs presses his lesson home with all the fervour and cogency of a true and faithful minister of God.
