Excerpt from Christian Aspects of Faith and Duty
It is not so much as sermons, but rather as essays upon the most immediately and permanently interest ing topics of Christian thought, that we value these dis courses. While treating the general subject of prac tical religion, they grapple with the very questions fihat are now agitating the mind of the religious world. There is a frankness and courage in meeting doubts and difficulties, a union of boldness of thought with reverence of Spirit, a sympathy with the explorers and pioneers of modern thought, blended with gratitude and docility toward past thinkers, a manly, business-like dealing with reli gion, - which, together, make this volume singularly pertinent to the wants of the times, and admirably adapted to hold the beam, while freedom and au thority, dogmatism and doubt, are agitating the scales of theological Opinion. But it would be an injustice to the author, did we omit to say, that his Discourses, though peculiarly timely, are not depen dent for their interest on the period of their appear ance. They deal with permanent realities in a man ner and Spirit, which is for all times. They are rather positive enunciations of Christian truths, than con troversial arguments upon disputed points.
We cannot forbear to ask attention to the careful finish of the author's style. It is calm, clear and strong, rising at times into the most graceful elo quence.
