JEREMIAH BURROUGHS 3 PACK
The Saints' Happiness
These are the last sermons this great Puritan preached before he died of tuberculosis in 1646. Burroughs was a member of the Independent faction of the Westminster Assembly. Though he died at a relatively young age, the amount of material he left behind is staggering.
This book was first published in 1660 by some of Burroughs’ friends and admirers, of which there were many. It was reprinted in 1867 in the Nichols Series of Puritan reprints and that edition was published again 1987 by Soli Deo Gloria. This is the first ever modern edition of this classic work.
This extremely rare work by this great Puritan preacher is 704 pages based on Hebrews 11:25-26: “Moses chose to suffer affliction with the people of God rather than enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.” It is a masterful treatise on suffering and self-denial. This is the first modern edition of this rare work since its initial printing in 1641. There is another edition on Amazon, but the description of that work says that it is “a reproduction of a historical artifact and may contain missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, and errant marks.” Our edition has been completely retypeset and slightly modernized. Latin has been translated into English. Long paragraphs have been broken down into smaller ones (but nothing is omitted). Scripture references have been checked for accuracy. The original 1641 edition that was purchased cost over $600. This new edition will retail for $45, or 1/12 the cost of that original copy. It is a hardcover book, printed on acid-free paper for a very long shelf life. It is stitch-sewn rather than glued and comes with a color dustjacket. PLEASE NOTE: Because of the size of this reprint and the cost to publish, this will be a limited edition. Only 1,000 copies will be printed and after they are gone the book will once again be out of print.
"Precious Faith" and "The Saints' Walk by Faith" are the scarcest books by this great Puritan preacher to find on the antiquarian market, and now they are available for the first time since the 17th century. Retypeset and edited, they are combined here into one volume.
