Product Description

The conduct of believers must be better than that of unbelievers. Believers must pursue a holy life. In his day, Jeremiah Burroughs' heart was grieved to see that a holy life was not common among professing Christians. One can only imagine how grieved his heart would be if he was were living today.

Burroughs judged the power of godliness not to consist in high, lofty speculation regarding theological minutia, but rather in a holy conversation, a holy conduct. He shows that to live a holy life, a Christian must first be acquainted with the root from which all holiness must spring. Unless we do all for and from Christ, our lusts will not be mortified, our duties will not be accepted, and our consciences will not be purified. We shall not be strengthened against affliction, neither shall we persevere. We must not be brought to glory in ourselves, but in Jesus Christ.

About Jeremiah Burroughs

A Summary of the Gospel 

 

The Gospel Life Series 

Paul write to Titus that we are to adorn the doctrine of God in all things. This series of books by Jeremiah Burroughs, Puritan preacher in London in the 1600s, shows us how to do just that. We are to adorn the doctrine of God in our worship (Gospel Worship); we are to adorn the doctrine of God in our reverence (Gospel Fear); and we are to adorn the doctrine of God in our conduct (Gospel Conversation). To adorn the doctrine of God, we must know God and Christ (Gospel Revelation); we must know the blessedness that comes from having our sins forgiven (Gospel Remission); and we must know the marvelous plan of salvation that God offers to us (Gospel Reconciliation). 

 

Author 

Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646) was loved for his preaching and gentle spirit and was persecuted for his nonconformity to the Church of England. Feeling compelled to flee to Holland for a time, he eventually returned to England and preached to congregations in Stepney and Cripplegate in London, two of the largest congregations in England. He also served as a member of the Westminster Assembly until his death in 1646.
