Excerpt from Thoughts of Favoured Hours, Upon Bible Incidents and Characters, and Other Subjects
Every Christian knows that there are favoured hours, when Truth shines with more than usual brightness, and when both the head and the heart find it to be a relief rather than a labour to express thought, whether with the tongue or the pen. It was at such seasons that the papers composing this little volume were written.
The writer's object was rather to suggest than to elaborate thought; to lead the mind of his reader a little aside from the beaten paths of religious discussion; to find some untrodden spots in the green pastures where the Good Shepherd leads his ﬂock; at the same time keeping carefully within their boundaries.
A glance at the index will show that the work is, in the fullest sense of the word, miscellaneous; that it takes a wide range; and that it is what it was intended to be, - a companion for, a leisure or a lonely hour, a book for the centre-table, the parlour-window, or the bed-chamber. Those minor questions which divide evangelical Chris tians into distinctive sects and parties are not touched.
