VOICES OF THE DEAD.
REV. JOHN CUMMING, D.D.,
MINISTER OF THE SCOTTISH NATIONAL CHURCH, CROWN COURT, COVENT GARDEN ;
,” “VOICES OF THE DAY,”
" ETC. ETC.
This volume consists mainly of Voices from ancient days, and from the lives of faithful and sainted men - especially those recorded in the eleventh chapter of the Epistle to the Hebrews. They overcame through faith, and entered into their rest. The records of their biographies remain for our study and profit. Their acts, and sufferings, and words of consolation, are still reverberating in the church of Christ.
It is written of a celebrated French regiment, that they so loved their com mmanding officer while at their head, and somenerated his memory after he had fallen in battly that they required his name to be retained on the regimental roll, and called with the names of the living every day ;-on the name of the dead warrior being called, a living soldier answered for him, “ Dead upon the field.” The eleventh chapter of the Epistle to the Hebrews is the roll-call of the illustrious and the sainted dead, and each of their names, as it is enunciated, should stir our hearts as a trumpet sound.
