"Quest. What is the work of God when he brings a sinner home to himself? Answ. The ususal way is, for God to make the soul to see and be sensible of the dreadful evil that there is in sin, and the great breach that sin hath made between God and it; for certainly Jesus Christ can never be known in his beauty and excellency till the soul know that."
Jeremiah Burroughs. "The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment." London: Printed by W. Bentley for L. Sadler and R. Beaumont, 1651.- Reproduction of the original in the Union Theological Seminary (New York, N.Y.) Library. p.83.
