COMPLETE BODY OF
PRACTICAL AND DOCTRINAL

DIVINITY:

BEING A

SYSTEM OF EVANGELICAL TRUTHS,

DEDUCED FROM

THE SACRED SCRIPTURES.

ABRIDGED BY
WILLIAM STAUGHTON, D. D.

The design of an abridgment, I conceive, is clearly to exhibit the whole
substance of an author, without admitting any thing superfluous.

Dr. Shaw.
Abstracts, abridgments, and references are of use in divinity as well
as in law.

HENRY.
. . . . . . I can learn
With greater ease, the great concern.

may not reap ample benefit from the following pages. An
equal mass of theological knowledge, in a compass so small,
will not readily be obtained. * The minister of the Sanctuary
will find it an excellent compainon in his preparations for the
pulpit; and the private christian, an instructive parlour
friend.

W. STAUGHTON.
July, 1810.

* The high estimation in which this work, has been, and
still is, held by the friends of vital Religion, may be inferred
from the numerous Subscribers to the Quarto Edition,
famong whom are the most learned and judicious advocates
for Christianity) and from the avidity with which copies
have been sought after, notwithstanding the high price they
have borne.
