THE GREAT QUESTION:
WILL YOU CONSIDER THE SUBJECT
PERSONAL RELIGION ?
HENRY A. BOARDMAN, D.D.

DEPOSITORIES, 56, PATERNOSTER-ROW;
AND SOLD BY THE BOOKSELLERS.
It is an every-day occurrence to meet with persons who “feel no interest” in the subject of religion, and who, on this ground, excuse themselves from giving their attention to it. I have in very many instances wanted some suitable book to place in the hands of persons of this description.
Within a certain broad and, comprehensive sphere, Baxter's “Call,” Alleine's“ “ Alarm," Doddridge's “Rise and Progress,” or Halyburton's “Great Concern of Salvation,” might answer the purpose. But with a great number of individuals, not one of these admirable works could be used with any hope of its being read.
Had I known where to find a book to meet the case, the present volume would not have been written. It has grown out of a conscious and urgent want.
That it will fully supply this acknowledged and serious deficiency in our practical religious literature, I do not allow myself to believe.
But I hope it may prove an acceptable offering to some who are either neglecting their own duty, or who have friends to whom they would like to propose the question_“ WILL YOU CONSIDER THE SUBJECT OF
PERSONAL RELIGION ?”
With these views, the work is humbly commended to His blessing, who alone can make it an instrument of good.
