This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1836 edition. Excerpt: ...are repelled. Heretical opinions are refute"d. The truth is fairly and perspicuously stated, and convincingly demonstrated. Upon all the subjects involved in these' leading doctrines ofthe Christiah faith, which are considereif; the sentiments exhibited are strictly evangelical. The car-_ icatures of these precious truths by Socinians, Pelagians and Arminians, -appear in something of their utter defencelesd character. The writer evinces a familiar acquaintance' with the Theologians of the seventeenth century, as vvell as with others, in the same department, of more modern date; and while he retains their manly sense, orthodox principles. and the unction of piety which enhances the value of their' lucubrations, has succeeded in ridding the subject of the an-' tiquated and scholastic dress 'in which they were wont to clothe it. He has been at school with Owen and his co-: d-jutors, not for style but for sentiments. Unlilte many pf its predecessors in this department, the work is attrar5t.iie on account of its style. It is pervaded by a tone offervent piety. Every man, whatever his present tenets, should read it. VVe think it would be difficult to rise from its perusal without increased veneration for the renowned Personage hy whose mediation the sinner is reconciled to God, or gratitude'-for the pure, consoling and stupendous results wliieli legitima-hly flow from this reconciliation.
