The English Puritan Thomas Brooks

Yesterday was the 326th anniversary of the death of Thomas Brooks (d. 1680), an non-conformist English clergyman. He preached a series of sermons on Lamentations 3:24 that were eventually compiled and published in 1662 as An Ark for All God’s Noahs in a Gloomy Stormy Day. I discovered this passage while I waited during a friend’s counseling session for gambling addiction, which made this passage stand out all the more. This reading comes from vol. 2 of his collected works, p32-33.
