The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs is a classic work featuring clear and simple instructions on how to be content as a Christian. Burroughs will teach you that contentment lies in subtraction, not addition; that the workings of Christianity are nothing like what you thought them to be; and that once you have learned the way from Christ's word, you will be able to attain contentment as you never before imagined.

I read it on Kindle the first time, and the 1651 language is slow going, but virtually every sentence is pure gold for the believer. Listening to it on audio book was even better. Derek's British accent is a perfect fit and adds a pleasant nuance. His reading is excellent, and I got even more out of the book listening to it. I look forward to going through it many more times in the coming years.
Discontentedness is at an all time high in our modern era, and Christians are struggling with it as much as secular folks. This book provides a solid theological set of reasons why that occurs, and the solutions. It is rock solid doctrinally, and inspires an honest and critical look inward at our true motivations and thought processes. You will be challenged.
