Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ...to steadfastness. Practical exhortation, with confidence in the entrance opened through the blood of Jesus and in the possession of the great high-priest over the house of God, inflexibly to hold fast to the confession of the hope. x. 19--22. 19.
