الصفحة 212 - I will therefore, that, first of all, prayers and supplications, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men ; for kings, and for all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all godliness and honesty...
الصفحة 314 - Church the theological literature of our nation stands indebted for her best acquisitions ; and we hold it a refreshing spectacle, at any time that meagre Socinianism pours forth a new supply of flippancies and errors, when we behold, as we have often done, an armed champion come forth in full equipment from some high and lettered retreat of that noble hierarchy. Nor can we grudge her the wealth of all her endowments when we think how well, under her venerable auspices, the battles of orthodoxy have...

الصفحة 77 - ... power, when linked with a task that may be surmounted, instead of being left to expatiate at random, over an obscure and fathomless unknown — such is the superior charm of a statistical over an extended territory ; and such the more intense sympathy of a devoted few, in the prosecution of their common and defined object, than that of the scattered many, who have spread beyond the limits either of mutual inspection or of general control — That in a few months, did this little association both...
الصفحة 90 - ... not with the aliment of the soul, as it is with the aliment of the body. The latter will be sought after; the former must be offered to a people, whose spiritual appetite is in a state of dormancy, and with whom it is just as necessary to create a hunger, as it is to minister a positive supply. In these circumstances, it were vain to wait for any original movement on the part of the receivers. It must be made on the part of the dispensers.
الصفحة 27 - ... own person maintain at least a pretty close and habitual intercourse with the more remarkable cases ; and as for the moral charm of cordial and Christian acquaintanceship, he can spread it abroad by deputation over that part of the city which has been assigned to him.
الصفحة 214 - ... independence, and ardently prosecuting the literature of their order, or the labour of love in their parishes — the intent and engrossing aim of such a priesthood is to rear a generation for eternity. But still the blessings which they would scatter along the path of time are also incalculable. The promise of the life that now is, as well as of the life that is to come, is attendant upon all their exertions.
الصفحة 307 - ... thus all, in the book of God's testimony which mainly goes so to enlighten a man, as to turn him into a Christian, may be made to pass from one humble convert to his acquaintances and neighbours; and, without the learning which serves to acquire for Christianity the dignified though vague and general homage of the upper classes, he may, at least, be a fit agent for transmitting essential Christianity throughout the plebeianism that is around him.
