Books Review

We (propose to)…discontinue our Reviews… There are no book (beyond the Bible) which are wholly correct, and few therefore that we can really commend... Neither it is a pleasant task to be pointing out what we believe to be error… When we meet with any valuable and useful work, we will commend it without being requested to do so.

Question 194. Where to Worship? (asks G. T., Grangemouth, partially answered by quoting from The Christian Witness, Plymouth, 1837: “He is an enemy to the work of the Spirit of God, who seeks the interests of any particular denomination… it is drawing back the Church to a state, of which ignorance and non-subjection to the Word have been the occasion, and making a duty of its worst and most Anti-Christian results. This is a more subtle and prevailing mental disease (he followeth not us) even when men are really Christians”)
