A Treatise on Afflictions By Thomas Case

More > Howe was a fellow and college chaplain at Oxford.

A Treatise on Divine Contentment By Simeon Ashe
eBook (ePub): $9.99
Simeon Ashe (d. 1662) was an English nonconformist minister of the Gospel and a member of the Westminster Assembly. Ashe wrote this work, Divine Contentment, to demonstrate the Christian’s... More > duty in being submissive to God’s providences. This is every Christian’s holy and gracious duty in this life, and the manner of a Christian is found chiefly in his disposition of being in a holy frame of contentment. Ashe says in opposition to contentment, that “discontentment is to the soul, as a disease to the body. It puts it out of temper, and hinders its regular and sublime motions heaven-ward constantly.” The divines who recommend this work said that it is “one of the best works of the kind ever written.” Ashe is biblical, penetrating, practical, simple, and spreads the richness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the entire work. He expounds this treatise from the classic verse in Phil. 4:11, “I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” This is not a scan or facsimile.< Less
