This Book

This Book is the Mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation,

the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers.

It’s doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding;

its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.

Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, practice it to be holy.

It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.

It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the

soldier’s sword, and the Christian’s character.

Here paradise is restored, heaven opened, and the gates of hell


Christ is its grand subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its


It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet.

Read it slowly, frequently, prayerfully.

It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure.

Follow its precepts and it will lead you to Calvary, to the empty

tomb, to a resurrected life in Christ; yes, to glory itself, for eternity.
