From the Publisher

“If any book speaks prophetically to the contemporary crisis of worship in our churches, it is Burroughs’ Gospel Worship. It is must reading for all concerned about honoring God in worship.” ~ R.C. Sproul

About the Author

Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646)

It is perhaps the greatest tribute to Jeremiah Burroughs that his contemporaries held him in such high esteem. No less men of renown than Thomas Goodwin, William Greenhill, and William Bridge published six volumes of writings after his death because of their regard for his piety.

Jeremiah Burroughs was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He was a colleague to Edmund Calamy at Bury St. Edmunds. He was rector at St. Margaret’s, Tivetshall from 1631-1636, a church that is still standing in Suffold. Because of his non-conformity, he fled to Holland and settled at Rotterdam where he was a colleague of William Bridge. Upon his return to England, he was chosen preacher to the congregations at Stepney and Cripplegate in London, two of the largest congregations in all of England.

A member of the Westminster Assembly of Divines, Burroughs was also beloved for his gentle spirit. Richard Baxter said of him, "If all the Episcopalians had been like Archbishop Ussher, all the Presbyterians like Mr. Stephen Marshall, and all the Independents like Jeremiah Burroughs, the breaches of the church would soon have been healed.

Today so many Christians believe that worship is mostly for their own edification and is limited to singing songs. Nonetheless biblical worship's goal is to glorify God, not men and churches. God is Almighty and has full glorious infinite supremacy; men are called to worship Him in the beauty of His Holiness.

In "Gospel Worship," Puritan preacher Jeremiah Burroughs (or Burroughes; 1600-1646; English Congregationalist and a potent Puritan pastor) provides biblical regulations with great care and precision aimed to direct Christians and congregations in proper worship of God. Burroughs' expositions are intended to encourage right worship in light of God's awesome majesty and splendor.

Over a dozen sermons reveal the true mode, attitude, and conditions required for pleasing the Lord with our heartfelt adoration and worship.

The reader will learn how to rightly worship God through:

- The preached Word
- The sacraments
- Prayer
- And more.

"Let those that are near to Me look to it, I will be sanctified by them. I will be sanctified in those that draw near to Me."

The author notes: "Now in this Scripture you have these three special and notable points:

1. That in worshipping God, there is a drawing nigh unto Him.
2. That when we do draw nigh to God, we should take our heed to ourselves that we sanctify God's name.
3. If we do not sanctify God's name in our drawing nigh to Him, then certainly God will sanctify His own name upon us."

Burroughs states: "That in God's worship, there must be nothing tendered up to God but what He has commanded. Whatsoever we meddle with in the worship of God must be what we have a war­rant for out of the Word of God.

This was a truly motivating, captivating book. The primary thrust of these sermons is the sanctification of the name of God through worship. Burroughs dissects the importance of preparing for worship, which, as we can see in any contemporary church, is something that needs much more emphasis. He also uses a couple of chapters in discussing sanctifying God’s name in holy duties, followed by sanctifying the name of God through hearing the Word, and in receiving the sacraments. In trying to summarize this work, I looked at review of this book by Tim Chailles, and I suggest you all do the same. This book is very dense, but in no way a hard read, and has loads of teaching and application. The most important piece I took away is that our worship and our approach to worship must glorify and sanctify God’s name, and as Burroughs outlines the ways to approach this in worship, I felt keenly that my own worship was not up to what it should be. It’s also sobering to think that when we fast, meditate, pray, etc., all of those are forms of worship, and through which we seek to glorify the name of God, and also see the face of Christ. I read this fairly fast, took a few notes, but I will be reading it again next month.

I had to look long and hard to find this and it has certainly met all my expectations. I plan to use it as background and research material for preparing an extended sermon series and it will fit that purpose grandly as I update its material with some modern writers I already have. Great find! GMM

Indeed, contentment is a rare jewell. Burroughs not only defines contentment, but gives a detailed process to attain it. Burroughs writes contentment is like warming a set of cold clothes. You can come close to the fire, but when you step away you quickly loose the heat. True Christian contentment comes of the inside and becomes the source of warmth.
