This profound 350-year-old book is relevant for our modern culture that has everything and yet finds contentment elusive. Burroughs clearly defines the difference between the "comfortable" things and the "necessary" things, "The other things are pretty fine indeed, and I should be glad if God would give me them, a fine house, and income, and clothes, and advancement for my wife and children: these are comfortable things; I may have these and yet perish for ever, but the other is absolutely necessary. No matter how poor I am, I may have what is absolutely necessary: thus Christ instructs the soul." The book is filled with gold nuggets such as this. I only wish it was in hardback. Highly recommended.
