About the Author

Born into a Puritan family, he was sent to Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He soon became an advocate of the Congregational way and served as a chaplain in the Civil War. In 1648 he accepted the rectory of St. Margaret's, New Fish Street, London, but only after making his Congregational principles clear to the vestry. On several occasions he preached before Parliament. He was ejected in 1660 and remained in London as a Nonconformist preacher. Government spies reported that he preached at Tower Wharf and in Moorfields. During the Great Plague and Great Fire he worked in London, and in 1672 was granted a license to preach in Lime Street. He wrote over a dozen books, most of which are devotional in character. He was buried in Bunhill Fields. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Thomas Brooks' works are among the best of Christian literature. While most of his books are out of print, we can be thankful that his great treatise, "Heaven on Earth" still remains. Rich in vivid language, Brooks spells out the wonders of the blessing of assurance (or acceptance with God). He blesses the reader by unfolding the glorious truths of Scripture- showing how one can obtain assurance, and how to enjoy it. In general, Brooks provides a handbook for a victorious Christian walk. His teachings are deep and practical. There is not a dull page in this book. Today, one searches through the chapters of modern Christian books for a gem to take with them. But this work, like many of the past, hold precious nuggets in every sentence. The devoted Christian will find this book an absolute treat. I did not want it to end.

Format: Paperback
Brooks' masterpiece on Assurance is a must-read for the Christian who is honestly "examining himself to know that he is a believer" (2 Cor.13v5). The book teaches that although assurance is not essential to salvation, it makes the Christian's walk here on earth much more comfortable - "Assurance is glory in the bud; it is the suburbs of paradise". The Christian who has the assurance of his salvation has "heaven on earth".
Brooks calls on the reader to examine himself seriously to discern first that he has true saving faith in the Savior, then calls on him to ask probing questions about the evidence of salvation in his life; love to Christ, hatred of indwelling sin, etc.
Brooks is an "easier" Puritan to read. Sample this inexpensive gem today!

This particular e-book on assurance of salvation is excellent. Random quotes taken from this work include:
"...the weakest Christian is as much justified, as much pardoned, as much adopted, and as much united to Christ--as the strongest Christian. The weakest Christian has as much interest and propriety in Christ, as the highest and noblest Christian who breathes; though he cannot make so much advantage and improvement of his interest and propriety as the strong Christian, who has a greater degree of grace...A man may have true grace, and yet lack assurance...as the least grace, if true and sincere, is sufficient to salvation, so the sense of the least grace should be sufficient to your consolation...These two lovers, grace and assurance, are not by God so nearly joined together but that they may by sin on our side, and justice on God's, be put asunder...be much in believing, and make only the Scripture the judge of your condition; maintain the judgment of the word against the judgment of sense and feeling; and if upon a serious, sincere, and impartial comparing of your heart and the word together, of your ways and the word together, the word speaks you out to be sincere...Faith trades in invisible things, in eternal things. Its eye is always upwards, like the fish uranoscopos, which has but one eye, and yet looks continually up to heaven...Christ will be all in all--or he will be nothing at all."

From the previous reviews of the paperback version, I suggest that those who prefer to read it on the Kindle will equally profit from this entry.

Books still in print after 200-300 years might be worth checking out. I was introduced to Brooks through his book, "Precious Remedies..." and loved it. Best thing I've ever read on spiritual warfare, written a few centuries before the modern emphasis on the topic. This book is about assurance, in fact he uses that word to the point of annoyance. I might update to a modern context and say his topic is about confidence and security in Christ. This is a very good book. What I love about Brooks is his orderly way of thinking. Writers and preachers back then were very logical, orderly, and thorough. Like Jonathan Edwards, Thomas Brooks keeps a very good flow of thought going, asking and answering questions that may come up. This book is an encouragment to me,as Brooks basically says, "Lean on what the scriptures tell you about your relationship with Him and trust God." It is entitled "Heaven on Earth" as he feels when we walk closely with Him, heaven on earth is the experience. I wonder if Brooks coined the phrase for the English speaking world.
