Excerpt from The Advancement of Religion the Claim of the Times
At the request of the publisher, I have paid some attention to the work of Dr. R. with the view of expressing my humble judgment of its merits. The reverend author is favorably known to the churches of this country; and this work, will detract nothing from his reputation. With portions of it, I have been exceedingly interested, as throwing together very important thoughts upon the most important topics of religious instruction; well arranged, and favorably expressed. The work obviously cost the author time, effort, and prayer; and it is well worth the labor and solicitude it cost. Whoever reads it will be abundantly compensated, and if he reads it with the spirit with which it was written, cannot fail to become a more enlightened and useful Christian. The object and aim of the writer is not a selfish one, but it is to do good.
