Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nathan White on March 17, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Summary: A warm, devotional exposition of 1st John 3:3, "everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure."

Though Jeremiah Burroughs is personally not my favorite Puritan to read, I find him to be one of the the very easiest of Puritans to read. This book is no exception, and I would strongly recommend it to young Christians, women, and to friends/family as a short gift book.

But having read a few Burroughs' books before, I think he is at his very best when he is discussing the vanity of earthly pursuits. The SDG work, A Treatise on Earthly-Mindedness (I've blogged excerpts from this work before) is a marvelous work on this topic, and I mention it here because Hope also deals with a lot of the same thing.

Overview:
Hope is a book with two separate sections, the first being and exposition of 1 John 3:3, and the second half of the book being a sermon on Psalm 17:14 entitled `The Misery of Those Who Have Their Portion in This Life`. I personally found the first half to be exceptional, with the second half of the book a little forceful and long-winded.

But the essence of the book deals with the phrase `purifies himself' in 1 John 3:3, where Burroughs rightly shows how the Christian's hope (i.e. the true Christian's hope, as opposed to a false professor's hope) is a a hope that purifies us, prepares us for and greatly anticipates the second Coming of Jesus Christ when "we shall be like Him".

I greatly benefited from Burroughs expounding on this `hope', as opposed to the `hope' of the ungodly, who prove by their lives that their professed hope really isn't the hope of Christ's second coming. Oh, what our churches would be like if this type of exposition took place in pulpits across America!
