Editorial Reviews

"Here is a bait that has no hook under it...a pleasure which God himself invites you to, and which will make you happy, truly and eternally happy...it is certain that there is true pleasure in true religion."
"We too get told that being a Christian is a bleak and burdensome business, and not being a Christian could be more fun; we too, like Henry's first hearers and readers, need to be reminded that it absolutely not so."
