The doctrine of sovereign grace is here maintained and handled in a
practical manner. It has been my endeavor, in the following pages, not
only to state and defend the capital truths of the gospel, in a doctrinal
way; but also to point out their peculiar importance, as happily adapted
to awaken the conscience, and comfort the heart; to elevate the
affections, and influence the whole conduct in the way of holiness.
However the doctrine of Reigning Grace may be decried as licentious, it is
that very truth which God in all ages has delighted to honor; which the
Divine Spirit has owned for the information and comfort, for the holiness
and happiness of sinful men. Were I not fully persuaded of this, rather
than appear as an advocate for it, I would condemn my tongue to
everlasting silence, and my pen to perpetual rest.
