‘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.’ Jeremiah Burroughs is worthily reckoned as belonging to the front rank of English puritan preachers and his writings were numerous, but The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment is one of the most valuable of them all. • Peace among believers of various persuasions. Burroughs’ was much concerned to promote this peace and unity. • Peace and contentment in the hearts of individual believers. The Rare Jewel concentrates on this second aim, in what the author describes as ‘sad and sinking times.’ It is marked by sanity, clarity, aptness of illustration, and warmth of appeal to the heart. Jeremiah Burroughs presses his lesson home with all the fervour and cogency of a true and faithful minister of God.
