PIETY THE ONLY FOUNDATION OF TRUE AND
SUBSTANTIAL JOY ;
ADVICE TO A YOUNG CHRISTIAN," &c.
“Rejoice in the Lord always."
J. E. Trow, Printer.
The unexpected favor with which the religious public received the “ Advice to a Young Christian”--the author's first production-induces the hope that, after the lapse of several years, some additional observations on practical religion from the same pen, may not be unacceptable.
This little book, though designed for all classes of readers, was written, it must be confessed, with an eye rather to the young; whether professors or non-professors. The former, it is hoped, may be stimulated by it to greater activity in the divine life; and the latter, by the accompanying conviction of the Holy Spirit, be persuaded that piety is the only foundation of true and substantial joy.
If this sequel to the “ Advice," following in the wake of its humble predecessor, shall but servelike the life-boat in the storm-to rescue from impending danger, any who were induced by the former to steer for the port of peace, it will afford its author the most heart-felt satisfaction.
