SERVICES FOR THE CHURCH, WITH ORDER FOR VESPERS AND HYMNS.
By Drs. OsGOOD and FARLEY. This new Liturgy is believed to be peculiarly adapted to the demands and needs of our Religious Societies in city or country. It has been prepared with great pains, after a careful investigation of the whole matter, and extensive consultation as to the want of our Congregations and Pastors.
For particulars as to terms, &c., apply, in person or by letter, to the subscribers.
This is not a new edition of the admirable "First Series," but an entirely NEW WORK, containing about one hundred and fifty
by some thirty of our most esteemed clergymen, with ample and appropriate
introducing the Service of each day.
1 vol. 16mo. 75 cents, or in bevelled boards, $1.00.
“We cannot too highly praise this manual of domestic worship.” – North American Review.
Tho Providence Journal remarks, that “the work, both in thought and expression, as well as in typography, will commend itself to the devout as a valuable help at the family altar."
The Saturday Gazette says: “Tho prosent volume seems to meet the requirement of every family where devotional exercises are used, and we cannot doubt but such a book on the parlor table of every house in the city would exercise a beneficial influence. The tone of the volume is healthy, as it inculcates enlarged and encouraging views of the Christian religion.”
The Christian Register says: “ The selections, whether of prose or verse, are made with taste, and the prayers are brief, simple, cbaste, reverential, and tender."
The Monthly Religious Magazine believes “this volumo will prove more useful and more successful, if possible, than its predecessor. The Selections add much to the value the book, the mechanical execution of which is all that could be asked for the purpose.”
