MARCH, 1830.

REVIEW OF NEW PUBLICATIONS. Art. I. - Sermons preached in the Parish Church of St. Botolph,

Bishopsgate. By CHARLES James BLOMFIELD, D.D. Rector, now Bishop of London. London: Fellowes and Rivingtons.' 8vo. 1829. Price 12s.

This excellent volume needs no Imprimateur of ours to recommend it to the notice of the public. It is inscribed, with peculiar felicity of phrase, and most affectionate piety, to the parishioners of St. Botolph's, Bishopsgate, “as a record of" the author's “thankfulness to Him, who inclined them to hear the word with affection, and as an evidence of his continued desire to promote their spiritual welfare." Deeply as the flock must regret the removal of a pastor, by whose assiduous care they have been so abundantly fed “ with knowledge and understanding;" doubtless, they will rejoice at an event, which has so greatly increased the sphere of his usefulness, and raised him to a situation of honour, which his merits as loudly challenged, as the crisis of the Established Church confessedly needs. “ The signs of the times," to the prophetic eye of a Christian —(for we meddle not with that “ distress and perplexity” of the political world, " which have made men's hearts fail them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming upon the earth")" the signs of the times” are big with portentous augury, and the faith once delivered to the saints must indeed be earnestly contended for, whether we would save it harmless from the rude assaults of infidel liberality, or protect it from the mischievous contact of indifference, enthusiasm, and cant.

The learned author of the Sermons before us “ has studied to show himself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." The doctrines of the gospel have been faithfully expounded, and its precepts impressively enforced. With apostolical “plainness of speech" the venerable Prelate has united an awful solemnity of style, which bespeaks a heart thoroughly imbued with the feelings of a Christian, and alive to the



[ocr errors]

measureless responsibility of his office. The uncompromising spirit of a Christian warrior, encouraging his followers to the battle of the cross, hath taught him to assume the attitude of one, who would summon men to “ endure hardness, as good soldiers of Jesus Christ;"' yet his most zealous exhortations are but “ the words of soberness and truth ;” and the spirit of benevolence and love with which they are uttered, makes an indelible impression upon our hearts. " Quanta illa fuit gravitas! Quanta in oratione majestas ! ut facile Ducem, non comitem diceres."

The volume, which we have thus introduced to our readers, contains twenty-two sermons, upon the following topics:-1. A Godly Disposition necessary to the hearing of the Word. 2. Infidelity caused by Ignorance and Ungodliness. 3. The Mysteriousness of some parts of a Divine Revelation no ground of Objection. 4. The Help of the Spirit. 5. The Gifts of the Spirit. 6. The Creation. 7. The gener Deluge. 8. Pharaoh's Heart hardened. 9. Choice of a Religion. 10. Dispositions for, and grounds of confidence in Prayer. 11. Humility and Contrition, 12. Christian Courage and Consistency. 13. Christian Improvement. 14. Christian Purity. 15. Constancy in our Christian Profession. 16. The Christian interpretation of signal Calamities, 17. Penance and Penitence. 18. The good Shepherd. 19. The Cross of Christ. 20. Resurrection of the Body. 21. Athanasian Creed. 22. A Farewell Sermon.

To analyze these Sermons, in the usual space allotted to our review of single volumes, would be an almost impossible task, and, without doubt, a very fruitless undertaking. We purpose, therefore, to favour our readers with some extracts from the most interesting portions of them, by which they may learn to admire both the matter and the manner of the work upon our table. Yet, where all is so good, how shall we make partial selections ? and where there seems little motive for preference, how shall we fix our choice? We will begin, dr dpxñs. The first discourse shall have our first regard. The doctrine of an assisting and preventing grace has been an abundant source of heresy and dispute. Whether a man, by his own natural strength, can turn and prepare himself to faith and calling upon God; what is the efficacy of preventing grace; whether it ever fail of converting those to whom it is offered ; and whether its recipients may finally resist it;'are points about which there have been “great searchings of heart.” How to solve the difficulties which embarrass our reasonings, when we attempt to reconcile the notion of preventing grace with that of free-will, has been the vain endeavour of men, who would be wise above what is written. “ Our necessary ignorance of what may
