This is a fantastic and profound book, HOWEVER . . .
DON'T BUY THIS EDITION! The print is miniscule and very difficult to read! Try the Banner of Truth Edition.
This great book, written almost 400 years ago, addresses the basic problem of human discontent, suffering and offers a timeless and tested solution. 16th and 17th century Divines did not mince words, cater to the fickle tastes of the reading public or care about being poitically correct. They preached the truth.
True contentment, argues the author, is achieved by subtraction and not by addition; by surrender and not struggle.
Read this great work and toss all those written by people who will be forgotten next year. It will set your heart on fire and elevate your soul.
