Private Thoughts Upon a Christian Life; or, Necessary Directions for Its Beginning and Progress Upon Earth... Part II.

by William Beveridge


Private Thoughts Upon a Christian Life, or Necessary Directions for Its Beginning and Progress Upon the Earth (Part II) by William Beveridge, covers many topics relevant to living out one's faith. The book is divided into ten sections. The first couple of areas renews Beveridge's call to education. Teaching and learning the creeds, prayers, scriptures, doctrines, and sacraments falls on the shoulders of parents and the church. Beveridge details some of the content of"Christian Ed" with aspects of God and the Trinity to be explored and reflected on. Practical application of the faith in dealing with"riches," self-denial, struggling to stay on the straight and narrow, and imitating Christ fills several more sections of this book. Call and Election are given due diligence also. The book ends with a beautiful reminder of the imminent return of Christ.
