Excerpt from Select Letters of the Rev. William Romaine, A. M
IN our former Essay to Mr. Romaine's Treatises on the Life, Walk, and Triumph of Faith, we observed, that the great and unceasing topics on which he de lighted to expatiate were, the atoning blood and per feet righteousness of Christ, as forming the great and only foundation of his hope and of his confi dence towards God. These important doctrines of the Christian faith, form the no less favourite and oft-recurring theme which pervades, and is diffused through the whole texture of the excellent Letters of which the present Volume is composed. And though they may not be fitted to stimulate the nu derstanding, or to regale the fancy of the merely intellectual reader; yet, to the simple-hearted and spiritually-minded Christian, these precious and con soling truths, however frequently presented, will be felt in all the freshness and power of their peace speaking, holy, and regenerating inﬂuence; In this respect, he imitated the example of the great Apostle of the Gentiles, who expressed his determination to know nothing among his people save Jesus Christ and him crucified.
