The Rare Jewel Of Christian Contentment - by Jeremiah Burroughs
'I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content' - Philippians 4:11
Burroughs' writings, some published before and others after his death, were numerous - but 'The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment' is one of the most valuable of them all. Its author was much concerned to promote peace among believers of various 'persuasions', and peace and contentment in the hearts of individual believers during what he describes as 'sad and sinking times'. 'The Rare Jewel' concentrates upon this second aim. It is marked by sanity, clarity, aptness of illustration, and worth of appeal to the heart. In the words of the author: 'Christian contentment is that sweet inward quiet, that gracious frame of spirit which freely submits to and delights in God's wise and fatherly disposal in every condition'.
As mentioned in David Legge's sermon 'The Secret Of Contentment'

To The Golden Shore: The Life of Adoniram Judson
by Courtney Anderson
On February 19th 1812, Ann and Adoniram Judson sailed from Salem aboard the brig Caravan as two of the first missionaries to go out from North America. Watching the shoreline disappear from view, they could not have forseen the impact of their journey on the future of the Christian world mission or on the thousands of men and women who would follow in their footsteps. After a short stay in India, they carried the Good News of Jesus Christ to the golden shore of Burma
Drawing on letters and church records, Courtney Anderson paints a poignant portrait of Judson's early life in dealing with the conflict between his desire for material success and the inner call to serve God. For Adoniram Judson "the golden shore" brought bitter hardships, imprisonment, and family tragedy. Yet he never wavered in his committment to win people to faith in Christ and to translate the Bible into the Burmese language.
This special edition recognises the 175th anniversary of the Judsons' sailing on their historic voyage, and celebrates the early years of Baptist missions overseas. This is a rewarding read which will challenge you deeply regarding your own committment to serving God.
