A mong those who have been ripened eprly fbf usefulness, and after being eminently useful, havebeen early removed to the rest that remaineth for the people of God, few have been more celebrated for a lovely, unobtrusive piety than Scougal. Bishop Burjiei, with a name high in public esteem, and engagements numerous and important in public life, did not deem it unworthy of his station and character to become a warm eulogist of the young author, and of that work of his, A vhich was published in his lifetime. This, his main work, and which has gained him most reputation, The life of God in the soul of man, has been the delight of the pious for a century and a half. It cannot be necessary to repeat the praises bestowed on it for its simplicity, fervor, method of arrangement, and exhibition of the genuine amiableness of religion. That its publication is seasonable at the present time, in order to direct the attention of its readers from subjects of doubtful disputation to the diligent keeping of the heaH, no self-observer can question. It has, indeed, been reprinted often but, so far as the writer of this brief notice is informed, never accompanied in America with the Sermons of the author. These, and the discourse delivered on his death, with a preface by a former editor, can hardly fail to render the present edition acceotable to the friends of true piety in A merica.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
