Is it possible to be content when life is painful and disappointing? The Art of Divine Contentment considers the implications of the Apostle Paul’s claim that he had learned to be content in any situation (Phil 4:11). Our discontent is sinful when we murmur against God and accuse Him of injustice or cruelty. But by frequently beholding God’s sovereignty, love, and grace, we can learn to be more content in all circumstances.

Thomas Watson (1620-1686) was an English Puritan preacher and author. Watson originally published The Art of Divine Contentment around 1660. The source text for this edition is from an 1829 printing by L. B. Seeley and Sons in London. This book is a complete sentence-by-sentence modern update of Watson’s original text. Updates include:

New descriptive chapter and section headings.
Modern English sentence structure.
Modern English vocabulary.
Added paragraph breaks for topic transitions.
English Standard Version (ESV) scripture references.
Full scripture quotations and annotations in footnotes.
Active table of contents.
