Excerpt from Heavenly Light for Earthly Firesides
While, however, it is true that we have written chieﬂy for the unlearned, we would not intimate that there is no food in these pages for cultivated minds. It is impossible, perhaps, to write upon the great themes of our holy religion for the mature intellect, without the presentation of much upon which even the learned may, with profit, dwell. Theological stu dents, too, it is believed, may obtain help from this work in determining how to discuss, before mixed congregations, the subjects which must forever form the staple of their dis courses for though profound metaphysical argument may be comprehended in the class-room and by select audiences, the young minister soon learns that, before a popular assembly, hisusefulness lies in simplifying, as far as possible, the truths he would convey.
