  • By William B. Barcley
$8.79
($11.99)
The temptation to be discontent is everywhere. We are bombarded with advertisements telling us we are incomplete and unfulfilled. And yet the seeds of discontentment are already present in our own sinful hearts. Almost four hundred years ago Jeremiah Burroughs wrote of the "rare jewel" of Christian contentment. If it was a rarity in the days of the Puritans, how much more is this true today William Barcley addresses the heart of the matterthe discontent that lies within. Based in the writings of Jeremiah Burroughs and Thomas Watson, he presents afresh these great Puritans' meditations on contentment for a modern audience. Above all, he seeks the wisdom of Paul, who declared that he had found the "mystery" or the "secret" of being content. Contentment must be learned, and Barcley reveals the secret, calling us to a contentment that comes from knowing God and delighting in his sovereign goodness and fatherly care.
