Divine Will; and The Kingdom of Grace, or SPIRITUAL
THEOCRACY, Which Christ administers through the me-
dium of providence, and the history of the world.
Should these pages, in the faintest degree, tend to
promote a reverential submission to the Oracles of God,
and a loving faith in the scriptural guidance and ca-
tholic teaching of our own Church, the writer will be
deeply grateful, and abundantly rewarded.
For himself, and in behalf of all who may happen to
peruse what is here published, he can wish no greater
blessing, than to feel, when life's closing scene shall
approach, what saintly Bishop Ken has recorded: -
"As for my religion, I die in the holy catholic and
apostolic faith professed by the whole Church before the
disunion of the East and West: more particularly, I die
in the communion of the Church of England, as it stands
distinguished from all Papal and Puritan innovations,
and as it adheres to the Doctrine of the Cross."- Prose
Works of Bishop Ken, p. 17.
