STOUGHTON ON THE CHURCH HISTORY OF THE TIMES These volumes, which are a narrative of the first half of the century, supplemented with a brief sketch of the leading events in the thirty-four years that have followed, complete what may be fairly regarded as the great literary wish of Dr. Stoughton. A careful and conscientious student of ecclesiastical history, he has spared no effort to understand the religious movements which have given the Church of Christ in England (using that term to describe not the State Church, but the aggregate of the various Christian communities in the country) its present character. The reader will find in his volumes an account of modern Christianity as fair and impartial as it is comprehensive and complete. The most severe critics would not venture to assert that Dr. Stoughton is a partizan. He is a Nonconformist, but he is never slow to recognize the virtues of the stoutest opponents of Dissent. His anxiety always is to look at all questions from the standpoint of the opposing parties, so that as far as possible he may do justice to the motives and views of each. This admirable quality he maintains where it is more difficult to do so, when he comes to deal with the controversies of our own time. This desire to be charitable is, indeed, pushed so far as to weaken to some extent the strength of the book. But its Christian courtesy, its liberal-minded judgments, its extreme considerateness for individuals, every one must acknowledge, however he may dissent from some of the opinions pronounced both on individual character and on the tendency of particular movements. These volumes, like those which preceded them, prove Dr. Stoughton to be a cultured and scholarly Christian gentleman, whose heart is full of sympathy for all good men, who is de...

Excerpt from The Congregational Review, Vol. 1: In Which Are Incorporated the Congregationalist and British Quarterly Review We often hear the question put, How is this spiritual life to be deepened The way in which it is asked is often not very intelligent, and the answer given extremely unsatisfactory. Sometimes it seems to be suggested that there is some miraculous process by which this result may be secured. Apparently there is an idea that the deepening of spiritual life is something different than a growing in knowledge, in faith, in love, and in obedience to Jesus Christ. The question is asked as though holiness were some special privilege belonging to a select circle of Christ's followers, and not a great blessing within the reach of all who seek it in sincerity and faith. And it is asked, finally, as though it was a thing given, in a sense in which forgive ness of sin is bestowed, and in the attainment of which the individual himself had no part. Holiness is doubtless the gift of the grace of God, but it is bestowed on those who work their own salvation with fear and trembling, because it is God which worketh in them.

Excerpt from Household Reading: Selections From the Congregationalist, 1849-1866 A greater number of volumes and tracts have probably been compiled from the columns of the "Congregationalist" than from any other religious paper of its age, which dates back to 1849. The first work of the kind was Professor Thomas C. Upham's "Letters Æsthetic, Social, and Moral," a volume of 586 pages, which was published at Brunswick, Maine, in 1855. It was not stereotyped, and the edition was quickly exhausted. Rev. Dr. Joseph S. Clark's "Congregational Churches in Massachusetts" was issued in 1858. "Street Thoughts," by Rev. Henry M. Dexter, D. D., soon followed, a single chapter of the book having appeared in the "Congregationalist" each week of the preceding year. "Helps over Hard Places," one volume for boys and one for girls, consisting of the inimitable stories furnished by Lynde Palmer, were republished by the American Tract Society in 1862, and have had a very extensive sale. Articles by Gail Hamilton, who first became known to the public through the columns of the "Congregationalist," and was for several years one of its most valued contributors, have been republished in "Country Living and Country Thinking," and other volumes from her pen. Sophie May's "Little Prudy," an extremely popular book with children, was issued in 1864; and other articles from the "Congregationalist," by the same author, have been republished in the later volumes of the "Prudy Books." "The Potomac and the Rapidan," a volume of over four hundred pages, compiled from the popular army letters of Rev. A. H. Quint, D. D., was also issued in 1864.

Excerpt from Common-Sense Christianity: Being Many of the "Congregationalist" Articles For many years the fortnightly articles by Dr. Quint have been one of the attractive features of The Congregationalist. Many of these articles have been suggested by questions of Christian casuistry or church administration, or concerning Christian doctrine and experience - questions received by him in a very extensive correspondence. Over his profound legal and ecclesi astical knowledge, his keen insight into human nature, his kindly sympathy, his piety, his delicate sense of humor, and his inimitable style have combined to give these papers a somewhat unique place in current literature. They have now been gathered into a volume, partly in fulfilment of a purpose which he had in mind, and partly in response to the requests which have been coming for many years, and which have become urgent since his death. He long held a place without a peer in the Congregational.denomination as an interpreter of its history and its usages. He was a counsellor widely sought by those in perplexity or need. His words often banished doubts, illuminated dark places, gave hope and cheer. Those who have read these papers will prize them the more in this permanent form. Others, we are confident, will find here much to enjoy, and much to uplift and guide. May this book perpetuate the usefulness of a noble man, a Wise Christian leader.

By examining the development of church government through the perspective of lay-clerical interchange. Cooper offers a fresh understanding of the sometimes noble, sometimes sordid, and sometimes rowdy nature of church politics. The study casts new light upon Anne Hutchinson and the "Antinomian Controversy," the Cambridge Platform, the Halfway Covenant, the Reforming Synod of 1679, and the long-standing debate over Puritan "declension." Cooper argues that in general church government did not divide Massachusetts culture along lay-clerical lines, but instead served as a powerful component of a popular religion and an ideology whose fundamentals were shared by churchgoers and most ministers throughout much of the colonial era.
