Hebrews 11:24 reveals how Moses turned away from a life of selfishness to find greater joy in suffering affliction with the people of God. This is the thesis Jeremiah Burroughs (1599-1646) follows up in this book. He was no stranger to the things he wrote - he had to flee persecution to Holland for his non-conformity. Self denial is the way a Christian must go, following the Master's example, let alone Moses'. Denial of sinful lusts and also of righteous self. This is a beautifully prepared and published hardback with dustjacket.
