The following Volume is in great measure a republication of certain portions of a much larger Work ; from which I have selected some of the passages in the New Testament, which place in clear and strong light the nature and character of the Gospel, and exemplify its effect upon the hearts of those by whom it is received.
If an apology is required for adding another to the numerous works of a similar kind which issue from the Press, it must be found in the saying attributed to Luther, who compares the Scripture to a well-loaded tree, from which, however much has been already gathered, fresh fruit may be continually shaken down. However this may prove, I trust that nothing is contained in the Volume which is not the natural
growth of Scripture; nothing added to, nothing diminished from that WORD, which is emphatically declared to be “ truth,” and which it has pleased God to reveal for the instruction and salvation of mankind.
