More than half of the Bishops of our communion are now found in the unestablished ranks, while the deepest principles of ecclesiastical truth are involved in the existence and operation of the Scottish, American, and Colonial Churches. To those in England who have formed a habit of viewing ecclesiastical affairs mainly in connexion with political institutions, it is obviously important to shew that conscience is the only safe and enduring basis upon which an attachment to the Church can be founded.The Scottish Episcopal Church affords many valuable lessons and encouragements. Its very existence is a source of confidence and consolation. In the face of long-continued opposition it has maintained its ground to the present day, amidst bitter poverty and galling reproach.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
