Familiar Letters to a Gentleman Upon a Variety of Seasonable and Important Subjects in Religion
Edinburgh, R. Fleming, 1757. Third Edition. Leather Bound. pp. 400. 12mo. Bound in full contemporary brown leather. Five raised bands and six compartments to spine, red spine label with faded gilt lettering. Light general rubbing and wear to extremities, superficial cracking to spine, ffep missing, ink name to title page, mild age-toning and tide mark to contents. Binding tight and sound, contents unmarked; good. The irregular heats and extravegencies of some late pretenders to extraordinary attainments in religion, their imaginary divine impulses, and extatic raptures, with other effects of their disordered fancies, have cast such a blemish on the Christian Profession, in the eyes of unsettled and unthinking people , the 'tis well if too many are not in Danger of calling Christianity itself into question, from the manifestly false pretences and enthusiatic flights of some who have put in a claim to experience in divine life.
