The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment
Introduction by Nancy Wilson

“Burroughs, being a wise pastor, works the teaching of contentment into every possible nook and cranny in the Christian life. It requires diligent application if we are to say with Paul that we have learned the secret of being content in all circumstances.” ~ from Nancy Wilson's Introduction

Look Inside the Book

Jeremiah Burroughs reminds us that peace and calm in the midst of great troubles is a requirement for a Christian, and that learning contentment is the ABCs of the Christian life. But contentment does not come naturally. We excuse our stress, anxiety, and discouragement by claiming that we are just planning for the future and reacting normally to trials. But in this Puritan classic, Burroughs presents readers with the high calling to be content whatever the circumstances: “Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit, which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal.”

“The devil loves to fish in troubled waters.” ~Jeremiah Burroughs
