Description de l’éditeur
I think I may say that, while faith is the simplest thing in all the world, yet it is one of the most difficult upon which to write; because from its very importance, our soul begins to tremble while speaking of it, and then we are not able to describe it so clearly as we would.
I intend, by God’s help, to put together sundry thought upon faith, each of which I may have spoken at different times, but which have not been collected before, and which, I have no doubt, have been misunderstood from the want of their having been put together in their proper consecutive order. I shall say a little on each of these points:
1—The object of faith; or, to what it looks.
2—The reason of faith; or, why doth any man believe, and whence doth his faith come?
3—The ground of the sinner’s faith; or, on what ground he dares to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
4—The warrant of faith; or, why it dares to trust in Christ.
5—The result of faith; or, how it speeds when it comes to Christ.
6—The satisfactory declaration made in Scripture concerning those who have faith.
7—Misapprehensions respecting faith, by reason of which Christians are often cast down.
8—What this faith includes.
9—What this faith excludes.
