A superbly balanced work the Great Awakening divine, Thomas Scott [1747-1821]. He is of course author of the famed commentary and his influential The Force of Truth. Here, he delivers an excellent discourse on the nature of Christian sanctification inside the economy of grace.
Scott's personal influence is often forgotten. He succeeded John Newton at Olney where he continued to support and sustain William Wilberforce's anti-slavery efforts spiritually. This message was preached in Newton's church. Once there, he also took in a young Baptist intern, William Carey. He helped form the Church Missionary Society and more.

Textually a good, clean copy. Removed from an earlier sammelband at some point with associated tenderness and flotsam to spine.
