Description

Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers,” and Jeremiah Burroughs’ Peace and Healing provides timeless, practical counsel on peacemaking from a respected and seasoned Puritan pastor. Burroughs (c. 1600-1646) served churches in England and the Netherlands and worked to reconcile conflicts between denominations.

Later in life, Burroughs preached his final sermons on promoting peace, and the series was subsequently published in book form. Our book summary makes this classic but challenging work available and accessible to help Christians bring peace and healing to Christ’s sadly divided body today. Within, you will hear the heart of God as Burroughs exposes the sources of division, emphasizes the importance of addressing divisions, and encourages useful ways to heal divisions. These disciples of the Disciples are collectively known as the Apostolic Fathers — apostolic because they date from the time of the apostles, fathers because they are the patriarchs of the church, the forefathers of the Christian communities that followed. With writings that repeatedly promoted peace, Scriptural insights, and eloquent pleas for unity that resound through the ages, we consider these writings to be a rich resource for the church today!
