Excerpt from The Power of Religion on the Mind, in Retirement, Affliction, and at the Approach of Death
To excite serious reﬂections on the unsatisfying and transitory nature of temporal enjoyments and to pro mote a lively concern for the attainment of that feli city, which will be complete and permanent; are the objects of the present publication.
Piety and virtue, abstractedly considered, are truly amiable, and appear worthy of our earnest pursuit. But when recommended by the lives and testimonies of eminent persons, who have known the world, and experienced the emptiness of its honors, wealth, and pleasures, they derive additional importance; and con strain us to acknowledge, that the greatest happiness of man is to be found in religion.
