Excerpt from Rudiments of Theology: A First Book for Students
In the following pages I have endeavored to meet a request often made to me by Candidates for Ordination, that I would put into their hands a compendious manual that might serve as a first book in Theology.
In the First Part the fundamental doctrines of the Creed are considered - the doctrine of God, of God the Son, of His Atonement, of God the Holy Ghost, of His sanctifying work by means of the Church and her Sacraments; and, relying mainly on the help I have myself derived from Hooker, Bull, Pearson, and (most of all) Waterland, I have tried to put the reader's thoughts into orderly shape on each of these subjects.
