CHARACTER GIVEN OF THIS BOOK
By the Editor of the Gospel Magazine, July 1781.
THESE Sentences, &c. which are classed under their different heads, having for the most part been the experience of living and dying Christians, are a valuable treasure.
They comprise a great variety of subjects, most worthy the perusal of grave and contemplative persons; the graces, virtues, and duties of believers form a considerable part of them; and the rest paint, in proper colours, those, odious qualities of the mindwhich prevail in the unregenerate.
This book is extremely well calculated to enrich the mind with pious sentiments, kindle a sacred flame of devotion, and excite serious and sincere professors of the Gospel to pursue their Christian course with vigour and alacrity; and will therefore to all such afford a very pleasing and profitable amusement.
