JULY, 1836.


Art. I. - Ecclesiastes Anglicanus : being a Treatise on the Art of

Preaching, as adapted to a Church of England Congregation : contained in a series of Letters to a Young Clergyman. By tlie Rev. W. GRESLEY, M. A. Curate of St. Chad's, Lichfield, and late Student of Christ Church, London: Rivingtons. 1835. 8vo. Pp. xvi. 472. Our views on sermons and sermon writers have been detailed at some length in our critique on Mr. Simeon's works in the three first numbers of our sixteenth volume. The subject, however, is one of great extent as well as importance, and admits continually of new illustration. It is therefore somewhat surprising that so little has been written on it in a country where this species of writing is so much cultivated, and which may more than challenge competition with every other in the world in regard to the eloquence, profundity, and doctrinal instruction of its preachers. Our Barrows, Tillotsons, Taylors, of other days, and our Blomfields, Bensons, Dales, of the present, are only individual stars in a galaxy of sermon-writers ; and yet we are not aware that any treatise of any great weight and authority on the art has hitherto appeared in our language, except that of Claude, which is, after all, a translation, although highly enriched by the improvements of its gifted editor. Many valuable hints, it is true, may be found in the writings of various divines; still, however, they are only hints. Mr. Bridges, in his Christian Ministry, has some good observations on the subject; but he observes that “ a full discussion of its several particulars would furnish ample materials for a volume.” The volume is supplied by Mr. Gresley, with what success we shall proceed to consider. His treatise has this advantage over Claude's, that it is not adapted to, but composed for, the English pulpit ; a consideration by no means unimportant to the English student.
