This book admittedly stretches the guidelines that I try to follow to not use Logos servers to compete with Logos products.  Logos has a collection of works from the great German Reformed theologian, John Nevin in the Community Pricing program.  That collection has the original of this tract.  I very much encourage you to order it.

But I wanted it now, and see that Logos may offer the original 1843 edition, but they say nothing about the revised and enlarged edition of a year later.  This revised edition is the one that I am here offering.  In this edition Nevin adds a few paragraphs, interacts with his critics (one quite often cited in the Lutheran Observer, edited by Ben Kurtz) and adds a totally new chapter at the end.

In my opinion, Nevin is at his best in the closing chapters when he articulates what spirit of the Catechism and so how the spirit of the Anxious Bench just will not do.  He also makes it clear that he is not an enemy of revival.  He just wants a real revival. Big Smile

Source for this edition is Google Books - specifically http://books.google.com/books?id=33IWAAAAYAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=editions:PGzykmlW2GMC&source=bl&ots=Ce90PYD15Z&sig=3LX0LNurCnqiVZZaRsesdrEjakE&hl=en&sa=X&ei=2O8sUNiVNaK0ygGo1IGYCA&ved=0CDYQuwUwAA

The last page of the work has an erratum listed.  I have incorporated that into the text, chiefly because line numbers are useless in describing location in this edition.

Hi Kenneth:

Thanks for your work. And I think something offered like this while the CP is under bid, should increase interest in a writer who perhaps isn't as well-known as others.

I just began reading a book contrasting Nevin with Finney. The book is "Theology Drives Methodology" by Karl Dahlfred. It's available very reasonably at a well-known net retailer. The author, I think, is a missionary and this book resulted from an academic thesis.

Now that http://www.logos.com/product/24038/john-williamson-nevin-collection has gone over the line, I figured I would bump my post as advertizement for more people to pile on the Community pricing collection - saving us money...
