The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic -- a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.++++The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.

J.I. Packer once said that the puritans stand like the mighty redwoods across the landscape of evangelicalism in the past two millennia. Author Jeremiah Burroughs was one such puritan. He played a role in the Westminster Assembly and became a preacher at Cripplegate, one of the most prominent churches in London during the 17th century. As the cover bio suggests, he is indeed reckoned as belonging to the front rank of English puritan preachers.

Building his case from Scripture, Burroughs opens up his magisterial work defining contentment with a number of its inherent features. He moves on to display its mystery, how Christ teaches it, its excellence, the evils of a murmuring spirit, excuses of a discontented heart, and how to attain contentment. Though many have touted Burrough's Rare Jewel as a worthwhile read, it truly deserves to enjoy lasting influence in the church. His reminders and counsels provide a needed corrective for wayward, discontented, and covetous hearts. The essential nature of man has not changed since the dawn of time. Again and again, God's people who witnessed his awesome deeds complain incessantly for lack of comforts. Truly, the heart of man is never satisfied.

From ancient times to the present day, the human heart seeks contentment in worldly goods. Greedy and dissatisfied hearts reside within every man since Adam. Only through the new Adam will hearts drink from springs of living water and turn away from empty wells that promise refreshment but contain no water. Contentment's fruit will yield sturdy believers who are weaned off the requirements of external delights for happiness. Contentment graces the mature who have learned it and results in inward peace and cheerful hearts, no matter the circumstance. Indeed, godliness with contentment is great gain (1 Tim. 6:6). ( )

A study of how to "be in need" (Philippians 4:11-12), yet be content in Christ.

It began well, explaining what godly contentment is and isn't. But then, in trying to be exhaustive, chapters overlapped and repeated themselves. I think this book was compiled from a sermon series? If that's the case, then it might make sense to re-cover some of the same ground each week -- but as a book it could be edited down a bit. ( )
