A serious discourse concerning a well-grounded assurance. Thomas Brooks said, "I have observed in some terrible storms that I have been in, that the mariners' and the passengers' want of assurance, and of those other pearls of price that in this treatise are presented to public view, has caused their countenance to change, their hearts to melt; it has made them to "stagger...more

First published in 1654, Heaven on Earth is a treatise on Christian assurance. Brooks explores in great depth the roots, essence, and fruit of assurance within a genuine child of God. Brooks' contemporary Joseph Caryl summed up Brooks' treatise quite well: "All saints shall enjoy heaven when they leave this earth; some saints enjoy heaven while they are here on earth. That saints might enjoy two heavens is the project of this book."

As difficult as it is to review a treatise with some deep theolo...more
I just might have myself a new favorite Puritan (I'm not the only one who has a list, right?). I'm kicking myself for not getting to Brooks earlier in life. What a wonderful book -- I'm looking forward to getting to read more by him.

Aesthetically, this is fantastic. The language sings -- the book begs to be read aloud (and I frequently did so, interrupting whatever anyone around me was doing). You can feel the passion, the fervor throughout. A few paragraphs from different chapters illustrate th...more

Recommends it for: those who struggle with feeling assurance of God's love.
A treatise on Christian assurance. I found it helpful, with lots of Scripture references. Being a Puritan book, it is very structured on an outline. Not always "easy to read" but worth the extra effort.
A clear, concise, and insightful treatment of the subject of assurance. Brooks is the ultimate pastor caring for his flock's souls in this volume. An absolute pleasure to read.

Brooks is in many ways my favorite Puritan. Heaven on Earth is a great intro to his work.
