Don t let the world squeeze you into its mold is a modern paraphrase of Paul s warning in Romans 12:2 regarding conformity to this world. William Greenhill s sermon, carefully edited in this volume and made more digestible by introducing separate chapters to the Puritan s lengthy discourse, is as timely as it is necessary. Truth is, we are all too much in love with this world and too little in love with the world to come. Worldliness pervades our churches as much as our individual lives and we need to do something about it quickly. Stop Loving the World is not pleasant reading for it calls attention to a sin that we would sooner tolerate than mortify; but, if we are serious about godliness, mortify it we must. A book to read slowly, carefully, and prayerfully. Derek W. H. Thomas, John E. Richards Professor of Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, and Minister of Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS --Endorsement
