The Old Guys Book Giveaway!

30 Jul

Starting today and ending this Friday, August 3rd any who wish will have the opportunity to win a copy of a book written by one of the old guys! We hope to have these giveaways from time to time and our desire is that this will help someone have the opportunity to dive deeper into a specific work by one of our beloved old guys.


The Author:
Jeremiah Burroughs

The Book:
The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment




“When times are difficult and God’s people experience loss it is vital that we remember the sufficiency of God our Saviour. Jeremiah Burroughs is a kind of doctor for the Christian soul who points the wounded traveler to the treasure of Christ.” – T. Pruitt


WTS Books describes the book this way:

“Burroughs’ writings, some published before and others after his death, were numerous, but The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment is one of the most valuable of them all. Its author was much concerned to promote:

peace among believers of various ‘persuasions’
peace and contentment in the hearts of individual believers during what he describes as ‘sad and sinking times’.

The Rare Jewel concentrates upon this second aim. It is marked by sanity, clarity, aptness of illustration, and warmth of appeal to the heart. ‘There is an ark that you may come into, and no men in the world may live such comfortable, cheerful and contented lives as the saints of God’. Burroughs presses his lesson home with all the fervor and cogency of a true and faithful minister of God.”

    Blessed each week as I receive “The Cross- The Old Guys” comments as their comment points to The LORD who alone is Worthy to be praised.
    Fear of the unknown has a way of severing allegiances
    tempting & sometimes convincing us to diversify our
    spiritual investments….we need always be re-freshed in The WORD.
