In "A Treatise on Afflictions," Thomas Case generously applies a soothing salve to the wounds of God's suffering saints. He begins by compassionately illustrating twenty lessons God teaches his children in affliction. He then proceeds to show the advantages wrought by affliction in the lives of languishing believers. He shows why deliverance from suffering should not necessarily be the believer's primary goal when dark days come, and explains why suffering may sometimes seem to last longer than it should. The author shows from Scripture how affliction and instruction go hand-in-hand in the life of the child of God.

This work rings true to the suffering reader because it was written while the author was imprisoned in the Tower of London alongside Thomas Watson, Christopher Love (who was beheaded), and others.

Originally titled "Correction, Instruction" or "The Rod and the Word," this classic treatise has been carefully prepared for the benefit of a new generation of Christian readers. It includes a biographical preface by James Reid.

About the Author

Thomas Case (1598-1682) was a Presbyterian Pastor who was well-acquainted with suffering. He lost his first wife after three years of marriage, had proceedings brought against him because of his opposition to Bishop Wren, and was eventually imprisoned in the Tower of London (alongside Christopher Love and Thomas Watson) for his royalist views after the beheading of Charles I.
