THE famous HERMAN WITSIUs, Professor" of Divinity at Utrecht, in Holland, and the Author of a treatise, entitled, The Economy of the Covenants between God and Man, and various other learned and theological tracts, was a writer, not only emiment for his great talents, and particularly solid judgment, rich imagination," and elegancy of composition; but for a deep, powerful, and evangelical spirituality and savour of godliness: And we most heartily concur in the Recommendation of his works to serious Christians of all denominations, and especially to ministers and candidates for that

The late Reverend, learned, and pious Mr. JAMEs Heavey, in his Theron and Aspasio, Vol. II. p. 366. having mentioned a work of the above WITSIUS, adds, The go of the Covenants, written by the same hand, is a “body of divinity, in its method so well digested; in its “doctrines so truly evangelical; and (what is not very usual “with our systematic writers) in its language so refined and “elegant; in its manner so affectionate and animating; that “I would recommend it to every student in Divinity. I “would not scruple to risk all my reputation upon the merits “of this performance: and I cannot but lament it, as one of “my greatest losses, that I was no sooner acquainted with “this most excellent author, all whose works have such a “delicacy of composition, and such a sweet savour of holiness, “that I know not any comparison more proper to represent * their true character, than the pot which had manna; “and was outwardly bright with burnished gold; inwardly “rick with heavenly food.” ‘’’ .

Exth Act of A LETTER FROM A CIERGYMAN IN THE COUNTRY
... To the fundishes. . .
The sale of WITSIUS' of the Covenants, in-
creases among my friends. The translation is very just, and
the excellency of the work merits a place in every Christian's
library; I shall do my utmost to recommend it at all times,
and on all proper occasions. No pious person on earth can
forbear reading the 3d Book without wonder, rapture, and
devotion. It exceeds all commendation: Hervey might well
say, “I would not scruple to risk all my reputation upon the
* merits of this performance.” For my own part, I am not
ashamed, nor afraid of any scorn and ridicule, that may be
poured on me from any quarter, whilst I constantly aver, that

the work has not its equal in the world, &c.
