Excerpt from Sermons
To as many, therefore, as knew our departed friend in the delightful companionship of his living presence; this vol ume will be a welcome gift; and to such as did not thus know him, it is commended as revealing something of a noble and highly cultured Christian manhood, consecrated to the service of Christ, and of the truth as it is in Him.
It is not to be expected that all the positions and state ments to be found in the following pages will command uni versal assent. Mr. Haughwout was a self-trained and independent thinker, and as such he will probably be found to have thought differently, on some points, from many in our body ecclesiastic; or, at least, to have expressed his thought in an unusual form. We believe, nevertheless, that nothing will be found that need disturb the settled, evangel ical View of Scriptural teaching on the great themes that are here handled.
The main blemish in the style of these discourses will probably be found in a redundancy Of rhetorical ornament, owing, in part, to the fact of their composition in the early period of the author's ministry, but due also, in part, to his poetical temperament, and to his uncommon facility in sum moning troops of words to his service.
