Of Lovers and Whores: Jeremiah Burroughs on Hosea 2:14-23
(132 pages)
"This is the work of ministers to tell people what riches of mercy there are in God, and that all the treasures of those infinite riches of the infinite God are in Jesus Christ, and to be communicated through him." This was the aim and achievement of the puritan Jeremiah Burroughs, gospel preacher. In the preaching represented by this book he holds out Christ, from Hosea 2:14-23, with warmth and tenderness and prophetic insight, to the hearts of his listeners.
