Substantial sermons which we have read with much pleasure. We delight in their doctrine, tone and manner. The preacher has heard the "yea" which the Spirit saith so emphatically; and he has therefore bidden farewell to that perpetual "any" which is everywhere unsettling the minds of men. In Mr. Gray we have a good instance of a mind highly educated and yet free form those detestable weeds of heresy which are supposed to be the evidences of superior culture. The sermon on "Faith refusing Deliverance" strikes us as a masterpiece; but all the discourses here inserted are fine specimens of sermons for an educated Christian audience.
