Publisher's Summary

Based on Philippians 4:11, I have learned, in whatever state I am therewith to be content, Watson considers the great dishonor done to almighty God by the sin of discontent. The doctrine of Christian contentment is clearly illustrated and profitably applied. The special cases where, through changes in providences, discontentment most commonly arises are examined and preservatives are applied to the soul.

A remarkable audiobook

What made the experience of listening to The Art of Divine Contentment the most enjoyable?

This very old book contains depth of insight that eludes most modern writers. The reader does an excellent job of translating the content to audio. I would strongly encourage people to give this a listen.

Powerful & soul-searching. God used this book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have and he was so helped by it. We all struggle with discontentment far more than we recognize. It is at the root of so much of our sin.

What about David Cochran Heath’s performance did you like?

Undistracting.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were many I had to stop and pray and repent.

Any additional comments?

Highly, highly recommend.

Essential messages for Christians today.

A practical and helpful look at how to 'learn to be content' which is as relevant today (or more so) as when first written. Easy to understand and with plenty of scripture references. Helpful for those struggling with anxiety, difficult circumstances or for anyone wanting to develop their walk with the Lord.

Clear teaching on perhaps a most ignored doctrine

Art is indeed a good word for this phenomenon as once has to biblically discern it's true meaning . Watson will not disappoint
