Synopsis: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. (1 John 2:15)

Do you live in this world in such a way that people recognize that it is not your treasure?

The Puritans were greatly concerned with suppressing worldliness in the church. Today, worldliness is an even greater problem, exacerbated by the fact that so few dare to speak out against it. In this book, William Greenhill provides modern readers with a healthy antidote to our love affair with the world. He explains what it means to love the world, exposes the dangers of cherishing it, shares how we ought to relate to it, and gives encouraging directions for removing our hearts from it. This is a book with a timeless message, demonstrating the relevance of the Puritans for today. By God's grace, it will help persuade you that the world and all its charms are not what you should live for.

By God s grace, it will help persuade you that the world and all its charms are not what you should live for.Editorial ReviewsReviewDon t let the world squeeze you into its mold is a modern paraphrase of Paul s warning in Romans 12:2 regarding conformity to this world. William Greenhill s sermon, carefully edited in this volume and made more digestible by introducing separate chapters to the Puritan s lengthy discourse, is as timely as it is necessary. Truth is, we are all too much in love with this world and too little in love with the world to come. Worldliness pervades our churches as much as our individual lives and we need to do something about it quickly. Stop Loving the World is not pleasant reading for it calls attention to a sin that we would sooner tolerate than mortify; but, if we are serious about godliness, mortify it we must. A book to read slowly, carefully, and prayerfully. Derek W. H. Thomas, John E. Richards Professor of Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, and Minister of Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS --EndorsementAbout the AuthorWilliam Greenhill (1598 1671) was member of the Westminster Assembly and a prominent preacher among Congregationalists.
