“This volume may be the most comprehensive treatment of the nature and enticements of worldliness. It is a prose version of Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, reflecting the keen insight of Puritan Christianity. It is far too valuable to be ignored.” – R.C. Sproul


Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646) is one of the most beloved of the 17th century English Puritans. In this important work, Burroughs shows from Scripture the great sin of thinking as the world thinks rather than thinking God’s thoughts after Him. Then, realizing that right conduct is the result of right thinking, Burroughs gives us another gem in the second treatise offered here, A Heavenly Conversation, or Walking with God.

The Puritans rightly discerned the relationship between a person’s doctrine and his or her walk before God and fellow man. May the Lord use these sermons to give us the same kind of discernment in our day. May we learn to think biblically, and then may we begin to act accordingly.

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.



“We give ourselves with abandon to our pleasures as if we would die tomorrow. But we build houses and we accumlate things as if we would live forever: You ought to consider this more. The Puritans were great at meditating on this life with the next one in view. I encourage you to read Jeremiah Burroughs’ A Treatise on Earthly Mindedness. It is a wonderful meditation on exactly what this kind of worldly mindedness means, and what it looks like in our lives. ” – Mark Dever
