"The author discusses a number of aspects of Christian beliefs and practice as they relate to specific topics impacting on a religious existence. These issues are Hope, Charity, Our Neighbors, Devine Economy, Imitation of God, Christian Scheme, and Devine Services, and they are repeated as the book's individual chapter titles. The author maintains that "God has been pleased to lead mankind towards a sound understanding of himself, and an openness of heart to one another. Providence, I must own, is a favorite topic with me, and I am fond of setting it in every various light that may help to make it more clearly and more generally understood...I hope there is nothing in this book detrimental to the Christian Religion as taught in our Church, but I flatter myself that there are some hints at least which may prove helpful towards a rational, yet orthodox explanation of some of its most difficult and important doctrines""--Book.
