PREFACE

tO

the

EDITION

T731.

e'

is

a

deep,

practical,

well

jointed

difcourfe,

and

re=

"

quires

a

more

than

ordinary attention

in

reading of

it

with profit.

And,

if

it

be

fingly ufed,

I

Iook

"

upon it

as

one

of the

moil

ufeful

books

the world

"

hath

feen

for many

yçars.

Its

excellence

is,

that

4'

it

leads

the

ferious

reader

direëtly to Jefus Chri(l,

"

and cuts the

finews

and overturns the

.foundation

".

of

the new

divinity

by the fame

argument of

gofpel

"

holinefs,

by which

many

attempt

to Overturn

the

4'

old.

And

as

it

hath

.

already had the

feal

of

high

"

approbation

by

many judicious

Minifters

and

Chrif-

"

tiaras

that

have

read

it

;

fo

I

fear not

but

it

will

ftand

firm as à

rock

againít

all oppofitior

,

and will

prove

good

feed

and

food, and

light

to

many here-

"

after."

This

teftimony,

abitra4ing

from

human

frailties

and

efca.pes,

to which

the

greatef

men are

liable

while

they

know-but

in

part,

we

homologate

by

our fubfcriptions.
