John Marsh,William Bates
In The Danger of Prosperity, Puritan William Bates (1625-1699) insightfully teaches Christians how wealth, honor, and fame often contribute to the downfall of the unwary. He challenges his readers with the tender encouragement of a shepherd to carefully consider the ways in which the abuse of prosperity is both deadly and destructive. He provides numerous helps that Christians who enjoy God's hand of blessing can use to avoid its sinful abuse and improve it to God's glory and their eternal advantage. This classic work has been carefully prepared for the enjoyment of a new generation of Christian readers. Previously available only as part of a "complete works" lithograph from the early 19th century, this edition has been carefully prepared by the editor of The Digital Puritan. Includes a biographical preface by James Marsh.
