"The Holy Ghost is that blessed Agent, who, with infinite condescension and tenderness comes from heaven to earth to bring the wandering sinner back to God. And can this heavenly visitant be resisted? ...Yes, the Holy Ghost may be, and often has been resisted... You resist the Holy Ghost when you contemn or neglect the means of grace... The Holy Ghost is resisted by refusing to comply with his suggestions... And will such guilt go unpunished? ...As sins against the Holy Ghost are of a peculiarly deep dye, so their punishment will be certain and dreadful... He may utterly withdraw the Spirit from you."--quotes from the first 3 pages.

Robert Burton (1577-1640). "Robert Burton went up to Oxford in 1593 and in 1599 was elected to a studentship at Christ Church where he lived for the rest of his life... his masterpiece was The Anatomy of Melancholy, first published in quarto in 1621 and reprinted in folio in 1624, 1628, 1632, 1651, 1652, 1660 and 1676... the sixth [edition] was printed posthumously from a copy containing his last corrections.... Burton had read much, and all that he had read, or nearly all, was refined and incorporated in the Anatomy... The Anatomy, as its publishing history shows, was one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century. All the learning of the age as well as its humour--and its pedantry--are there. It has something common with Brant's 'Ship of Fools (37), Erasmus's "Praise of Folly" (43), and More's Utopia (47), with Rabelais and Montaigne (95), and like all these it exercised a considerable influence on the thought of the time. Dr. Johnson deeply admired it, and Charles Lamb's often and strongly expressed devotion, served to rescue the Anatomy from a brief period of oblivion; its admirers will continue to read and re-read it."--John Carter & Percy H. Muir, eds.: Printing and the Mind of Man, #120, p.73.

John Johnson (1706-1791) "of Liverpool, an English Particular Baptist minister who advocated high Calvinism. Johnson originally a General Baptist, developed a unique theological system, which destabilized many churches in the Lancashire and Yorkshire associations well into the 19th century. Because faith is grace, Johnson taught, lack of it is no sin. He held to a modalist understanding of the Trinity and a millenarian interpretation of prophecy, and he was vehemently local church protectionist and opposed to cooperation, even with other Baptists. Johnsonian churches practiced the laying on of hand and one ordinance, water baptism... Churches sympathetic to Johnson's teachings numbered 13... The last of the Johnsonian congregations had disappeared by 1850"--William H. Brackney: The A to Z of the Baptists, p.315. Johnson's The Way to Get Married was first published in 1754. It is somewhat of an allegory a la John Bunyan of 4 young men in Babylon, preparing for a journey to Jerusalem and the success of their separate journeys depending on the young women they chose to be a part of that journey.

John Gregory (1714-1773) noted physician and writer, professor of medicine at King's College, Aberdeen. He was also the author of the second title in the volume we are offering. "After the death of his wife, on 29 September 1761, Gregory wrote A Father's Legacy to his Daughters to relieve his loneliness and to record her opinions about the education of their two surviving daughters... This little work was not intended for publication, but was to be given to his daughters after his death. However, it was published by his son James in 1774 and was an immediate success, running into many editions and translations. The work contains advice on religion and moral conduct, female friendship, and behaviour towards the opposite sex, principally regarding love and marriage. Deploring the forwardness and freedom of contemporary female manners, Gregory argued that modesty, delicacy, and elegance would better secure men's respect and admiration. His concern for his daughters' reputations in the world led him to advocate caution and prudence; thus he advised them to conceal their learning and wit, advice that was scornfully dismissed as a system of dissimulation by Mary Wollstonecraft in Vindication of the Rights of Woman."--Paul Lawrence, `Gregory , John (1724-1773)', Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004; online edn, May 2008 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/11468, accessed 25 Nov 2015]. The book echo's the sensibilities of Jane Austen's novels.

Henry Scougal (1650-1678) Professor of Divinity in King's college, Aberdeen. "Scougal belonged to the school of Leighton in stressing personal holiness as well as theological learning. He died at the age of twenty-eight... Scougal produced several minor writings, mainly sermons, but above all The Life of God in the Soul of Man (L. 1677). This became a classic of Christian devotional literature, valued by Presbyterians as well as Episcopalians. In part one, Scougal defines true religion as `a union of the soul with God' and `a divine life'... Part two sets forth `the excellency and advantages' of true religion, and part three `the difficulties and duties of the Christian life.' ...John Wesley gave a copy of the book to his friend George Whitefield, who later wrote in his journal that `he never knew what true religion was' until he read `that excellent treatise'. Whitefield learned that it did not consist in good works but was `union of the soul with God, and Christ formed in us'. He wrote: `A ray of Divine light was instantaneously darted in upon my soul, and from that moment, but not till then, did I know that I must be a new creature.'"--D.B. Calhoun in Dict. Scottish Church Hist. & Theol., pp762-3.

Ambrose Serle (1742-1812) a Calvinistic writer. " official and religious writer... In 1764, while living in or near London, Serle became a friend of William Romaine. Like Romaine he was an evangelical within the Church of England and other friends included John Thornton, John Newton, Augustus Toplady, and Legh Richmond. A series of letters from Romaine shows the deep affection and sympathy in religious matters which subsisted between him and Serle. When William Legge, second earl of Dartmouth, became secretary of state for the colonies in 1772, Serle was appointed one of his under-secretaries, and in January 1776 he was made clerk of reports. He went to America in 1774, accompanied the British army from 1776 to 1778, and during part of that time had control of the press in New York. Serle argued against the American War of Independence on religious grounds in his Americans Against Liberty (1775); his correspondence is rich in information on American affairs... Romaine circulated Serle's Horae solitariae (1776) and Christian Remembrancer (1787)."--H. L. Bennett, `Serle, Ambrose (1742-1812)', rev. Emma Major, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography
