Product Description

Private reflections from the notes and diary of Rev. Thomas Adam (1701-1784), rector of Wintringham, which will pierce the heart and humble the soul.

"Mr. Adam takes us out of our ordinary track of reading and reflection, and shows us ourselves. He structinizes the whole soul; dissipates the false glare which is apt to mislead the judgment; and thus teaches us to make our religion more and more spiritual, holy, solid, practical, humble, sincere...The characteristic of the entire volume is depth of scriptural and experimental knowledge. It requires, therefore, thought and time, in order to be appreciated. But it will amply repay both. And it may perhaps, be affirmed, that there is no work of modern Divinity which is more likely, under God's blessing, to elevate and purify the standard of religious sentiment in those who study it."
