Creed And Character

By H. S. Holland

This antiquarian book is in good condition. There is wear on the front, back, spine and edges of the cover boards. The corners are bumped significantly. The previous owners stamp is affixed to the inside of the front cover board and there is writing on the front end page.The pages are yellowed and tanned, but clear from any markings. This book was donated by the author to the Saint Ninian's Chapter Library. "Sermons that are brought together in a volume embody a new motive, over and above the direct aim with which each was separately preached. They profess that they are united together by more than the mere cover of the book. They claim to suggest a single impression; to communicate a single and paramount idea; to convey a single supposition; to witness to a single source; to promote a single interest; to work under a single direction; to tend towards a single conclusion. They trust that their partial and piecemeal treatment of their subject will correct itself by help of juxtaposition; so that they may lose their unhappy appearance, as loose and sketchy fragments, and may visibly be seen to cohere into a valid and substantial consistency...." - Preface from Creed And Character
