The object was, to choose such portions of their writings as might be useful to the young and unlearned,-omitting those parts of the sermons which seemed to require more knowledge of books or experience of life,--and in the comment on the Church Services attempting sometimes to give the author's meaning in easier language. It is hoped that there can be no. irreverence towards the writers from whom thesě"selections are made, in thus endeavouring to bring parts of their writings within the reach of a class of readers not otherwise likely to attain to them.
