Like his Puritan colleagues, Burroughs sought to explain biblical teaching in a heart-searching manner. In this biography, Phillip L. Simpson opens a window into the life and times of Burroughs, providing the context for his memorable sermons and writings. What becomes apparent is Burroughs’s consistent application of the principles he preached to the conduct of his life. An ardent call for a gospel-driven life and a peaceable character is reflected in both his books and life, which stand out remarkably in an era of turmoil and revolution.

This is the first book-length biography of Jeremiah Burroughs.Table of Contents:1. Early Influences: Birth through the Cambridge Years2. Stisted, Chelmsford, and Bury St. Edmunds3.

He is a lay teacher and member of Crew Church in Huntington. Simpson graduated from Marshall University and Eastern Kentucky University, and is employed as an occupational therapist, helping people with dizziness and balance disorders.

He also serves on the West Virginia Board of Occupational Therapy.Endorsements “A man whose books are known and treasured almost four centuries after his death is a man worth getting to know. Phillip Simpson has done the church a great service in penning this long-overdue account of the life and impact of Jeremiah Burroughs.

I am glad to commend it to you.” — Tim Challies“Jeremiah Burroughs is (rightly) one of the most beloved Puritans of his day and ours. His precise biblical doctrine and spot-on application have given him a well-deserved place in the first rank of Puritan preachers. And while we have been blessed to have many of his works made available to us of late, we were largely ignorant of anything about Burroughs the man, other than short excerpts from reference works such as the Dictionary of National Biography or Benjamin Brook’s Lives of the Puritans.Now, thanks to Philip Simpson, that has changed.

He has meticulously researched Burroughs’s life and has shown us what made the man who and what he was. I am convinced that until we know the life of a man, we cannot fully understand his theology or his passions. We can now become informed admirers of this great man and can thank God even more for giving him to the church.” — Don Kistler
