SKELETONS AND SKETCHES
BY WESLEYAN MINISTERS.
“HE THAT WINNETH SOULS IS WISE."
A distinguished Wesleyan Minister, in a discourse, a short time previous to his death, remarked, “ that the sermons of ministers of the Gospel are too often thrown away on their hearers, who speedily forget those things which had cost their ministers a great deal of time and study.
It would be well," continued he, "if the members of methodist congregations would commit to paper the substance of every sermon worth preserving.” To this observation the present volume is in part indebted for its existence: and the sermons, the outlines of which are here prescrved, are principally those by eminent ministers. A few original outlines have also been inserted.
