The Things Immortal : Spiritual Thoughts for Every Day Reading (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Things Immortal: Spiritual Thoughts for Every Day Reading Ly kind as to encourage the continua tion of the sequence of readings for leisure hours. In the present volume, the same manner of treatment has been preserved as that which characterized the preceding ones, a familiar and colloquial treatment which avoids formality and has been found to help the interest of the reader and to stimulate personal applications. The purpose of these little volumes is not to preach nor exhort, though these are excellent things in their place, but rather to encourage and stimulate those who are good to become still better, and perhaps to induce others, poor sinners, who have ordinarily no sort of taste for spiritual writings, to get into the way of reading a bit now and then as an antidote against the prevalent worldliness and a gateway to better things. We ask, of all who read them, a prayer for the writer. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
