Overview

"The almost Christian'--if there be one thing more than another, which
its pages are fitted to produce, it is a godly jealousy. To awaken
this, and realize the fruits of it, is the author's chosen purpose. It
is truly a searching volume. Its author saw the havoc which an easy
credulity in matters of religion was spreading among professors of his
own time; his spirit was stirred within him, at the thought of the
delusion which it propagated, and the immensity of the interests which
it bartered away; and in discharging a duty to the men of his
generation, he has put on record a word in season to us. The volume is
now intercepted from the disuse into which it was sinking; a laudable
effort is made, to present it afresh to the religious public; and most
devoutly is it to be wished, that the exercises which it inculcates,
and to which it so honestly leads the way, may become the
characteristic of modern professors. The immediate effect of such a
revulsion might be, an extensive overthrow of hopes and purposes; but
its latter end would be, righteousness and peace. It might lead to that
fearfulness which surpriseth the hypocrite; but nothing whatever would
it demolish, except those refuges of lies which the hail of a judgment
to come must ultimately sweep away.
