Let's read a classic together

rare jewel of christian contentmentIt’s time to dust off another classic: this time it’s The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs. Buy a copy now at Amazon or Monergism Books, or start reading it free on-line.

Then 3 weeks from today, June 18, visit with the gang at to start posting comments on the first section, “Christian Contentment Described.” The reading pace is always reasonable, typically one chapter/section or so per week.

Not only will the book itself be profitable reading, but the comments from the study group are sure to be thought-provoking as well. The motivation of accountability helps ensure we all stay on schedule.

The book itself is one of Jeremiah Burroughs' most valuable written contributions to the faith (so they say--he's new to me). Born in 1599, this great Puritan preacher writes of maintaining peace regardless of circumstances.

But his thoughts are just as applicable in our times as in his, because as we all know, our culture encourages discontentment and the need to buy and consume more, more, more to get and stay happy.

I look forward to reading what Mr. Burroughs has to say about it. And if you’re so inclined, I look forward to reading what you have to say about it, too.
