Excerpt from True Religion Delineated: Or, Experimental Religion, as Distinguished From Formality on the One Hand, and Enthusiasm on the Other, Set in a Scriptural and Rational Light; In Two Discourses: In Which Some of the Principal Errors Both of the Arminians and Antinomians Are Confuted, T

And I cannot but express my sincere wishes, that'what is here written by this reverend and pious author, may be taken notice of, read without prejudice, and thoroughly considered As I verily believe, from my own perusal, it will be found a discourse wherein the proper essence and distinguishing na ture of saving religion is deduced from the first principles of the oracles of God, in a manner tending to a great increase Of light in this infinitely important truth, and, at the same time, shewing the grounds of it, or shewing what things are true, and also why they are ing the mutual dependance of the various parts of the true scheme of religion, and also the foundation Of the things being reduced to their first principles in such a manner, that the connection and reason of things, as well as their agree ment with the word of God 1nay be easily seen and the true source of the dangerous errors concerning the terms of God's favor and qualifications for heaven, which are prevailing at this day, 15 plainly discovered shewing their falsehood at the ve ry foundation, and their inconsistence with the ve1y first prin ciples of the religion of the bible.

Such a discourse as this is very seasonable at this day: And although the author (as he declares) has aimed especially at; the benefit of persons of vulgar capacity and so has not la bored for such ornaments of style and language as might best suit the taste of men of polite literature yet the matter or sub stance that is to be found in this discourse, is what, I trust, will be very entertaining and profitable to every serious and impartial reader, whether learned or unleamed.
