IN presenting this collection of the Sermons of Rob ERT HALL, the publishers believe they shall render equal service to the interests of religion as to the republic of letters.
To a mind of the first order, stored with various knowledge, Mr. Hall adds a commanding eloquence, which at once informs, persuades, and convinces his readers. Whatever subject he takes up he sees it as a whole, and in the same luminous manner in which he sees it himself, he presents it to others. It is difficult, which most to admire— the force and solidity of his argumentative powers, or the rich glow of imagination, shed by his superior genius over every page.
The effect which his sermons on infidelity produced, during the first paroxisms of the French revolution, is yet fresh in the recollections of thousands. Never were the pernicious principles, the dangerous tendency, or the terrible results of the new philosophy, so strongly or so justly portrayed, as by this great man—And perhaps never were talents so successfully exerted as on that occasion. His subsequent productions bear all the marks of his exalted powers, and the publishers feel warranted in saying—that whoever reads the sermons of Robert Hall, cannot fail to place them among the greatest which any age or country has produced.
