What others have said about Jeremiah Burroughs

As far as his preaching, "he did not use 'those gaudy ornaments which too often put the preacher in the place of his text; or, as one has well expressed it, serve only to evaporate weighty truths, and to make them appear as light as the style.'--His great aim was to guide his hearers in the way to heaven; and accordingly, plainness and persuasion were the chief objects of his attention. The plain Calvinistic doctrine of the Reformation was honored with wonderful success, in promoting the interests of the Redeemer's kingdom, at that time."


Richard Baxter, a contemporary Puritan but not a member of the Assembly, had immense appreciation of its members and its accomplishments. He later commented that if all Episcopalians had been as Archbishop Ussher, all Presbyterians as Stephen Marshall (the great preacher of the Assembly), and Independents as Jeremiah Burroughs, the divisions of the church might soon have been healed.

--James Reid, Memoirs of the Westminster Divines (Edinburgh: Banner of Truth, 1982), p. 156.
