Fourth Edition, fcap. cloth, price 28. 6d.
THE FINGER OF GOD.
BY THE REV. JOHN CUMMING, D.D. " It deals with subjects on which true Christians now have not two opinions, and on which the most opposite of the most ultra of partizans ought not to disagree. *** It therefore addresses itself to a wide class, and it is evidently intended for all professing Christians, irrespective of denomination.' Church and State Gazette.
“ A work which well proves that the author can be eloquent upon other topics besides those of the Romish Controversy and Apocalyptic Interpretation. Indeed, for our own part, we like him better on a subject like the present. There are some truly eloquent and graceful passages in the little volume before us, which must commend themselves to every reader."-Critic.
"A work not of great magnitude, but of great interest. This work will amply repay perusal. Notwithstanding occasional evidences of rapid composition, it contains many instances of great beauty of thought.”—Church of Scotland Review.
"A little volume which abounds in beauties both of thought, style, and illustration."--The Church Journal.
“Eloquent, demonstrative, and useful.”—Wesleyan Methodist Magazine.
Third Thousand, price 2s. 6d.
A Companion Volume. "Marked by the accomplished author's well-known graphic power and eloquence."--Church and State Gazette.
"Dr. Cumming has here stepped aside from his series of large volumes that he might produce a publication which deserves to be classed with the best of them. This we consider one of his best books. In point of subject it is of the highest importance; and there is withal a unity about it which is calculated to produce a full impression. The style of course is flowing and easy-the thought everywhere clear and fully formed. The book will not fail to find favour with the devout and the studious.”- British Banner.
"It breathes throughout its pages the mild genius of the Gospel, clothed in language so simple, and adorned with thoughts so elevated, as to draw the most worldly-minded within the sphere of its hallowing attraction. .. A study eminently worthy of youth, full to overflowing with scriptural knowledge, and peculiarly adapted to satisfy inquiring Christians. It is much to be desired that this little volume may find its way into Sunday-schools, and all institutions for the moral training of the rising generation.”—Morning Advertiser.

THE CHURCH BEFORE THE FLOOD.
New Edition, handsomely bound and gilt, in fcap. 8vo.
price 98. "For a well-considered, and at the same time eloquent exhibition of the fundamental principles deduced from the history of primeval humanity, we confidently refer the reader to the present work, with a full conviction that he will not consult it in vain. In a series of chapters which are marked by an easy flowing style, these questions are incidentally discussed with a force and clearness that cannot but be effectual in arming many with efficient arguments against an insinuating infidelity, and in building them up in their holy faith."-Morning Herald.
“ The result of deep thought and reading of a most varied character. We do not, in the Church before the Flood,' miss any of the earnest as well as elegant rhetoric by which Dr. Cumming's previous volumes are distinguished. At the same time many deep and interesting problems are treated in a manner that brings them within reach of numerous minds and degrees of capacity."The Britannia.

New Edition, foolscap, cloth, full gilt, price 9s. " In every point of view, we would highly recommend this work to the publicresting assured that none can close the volume, after an attentive perusal, with, out feeling edified and gratified.”-Britannia.
“Like all the reverend author's productions, it is marked by an elegant simplicity and a most enviable lucidity of expression. He who runs may read, and he who reads must comprehend; and in this circumstance lies the source of this accomplished writer's great success.”—Church and State Gazette.
“ Abounds with a faithful and energetic exposition of Scripture truth, in forcible and often most eloquent language. We believe that the repeated issues of Dr. Cumming's thoughts are having a benefic al effect upon society. Whereever they circulate they must diffuse Scriptural views, and maintain the ascendency of Protestant principles."-Bell's Messenger.
ARTHUR HALL, VIRTUE & CO. 25, PATERNOSTER ROW,
APOCALYPTIC SKETCHES ;
Or, LECTURES on the Book of REVELATION, delivered in
Exeter Hall, and Crown Court Church. New Editions,
revised and corrected by the Author, with Index, &c. Sixteenth Thousand. ' In two Vols. price 9s. each, cloth gilt ;
or 138. morocco elegant. “These Lectures were begun in Exeter Hall, during the period occupied in the enlargement of the Church of which the Lecturer is the Minister. Not a few were then afraid that the Author might be led into rash and questionable theories in investigating a subject confessedly beset with difficulties; but, by the blessing of God, and the exercise of caution and prayerful study, all has ended more than satisfactorily. The unprecedentedly large masses of persons of every denomination, and of no denomination at all, who overflowed the spacious hall in which they were delivered, and the growing attention excited in the minds of these audiences, and the saving and very striking impressions made on unconverted minds by the means of the solemn truths they heard, are all signs. and tokens that call for humble gratitude to God.
“Numerous requests were made for their publication. A short-hand writer was therefore engaged, who took a verbatim report of every Lecture. These reports the Author has now corrected; and trusts that the work will be found a substantial summary of his Discourses on the Apocalypse. It is his earnest prayer that these, and all his labours, may redound to the glory of God, and the good of souls.'
“ The fervent piety, subdued and reverent reasoning, careful thought and expansive charity, which prompt, guide, control, and vivify the whole, prove its author one of those gifted teachers whom it is, indeed, a privilege to hear." Morning Advertiser.

“ There is a striking and happy admixture from beginning to end, of the practical with the experimental; of the doctrinal with the experimental and practical. The volume, as a whole, exhibits a fine specimen of popular preaching, free, flowing, pictorial, and eloquent, indicating a man who has read much, thought much, and is a very keen observer.”—British Banner.
" These Lectures are written in a strong, nervous style, which cannot fail to recall the living man to those who have heard Dr. Cumming in the pulpit, or on the platform."-Weekly Chronicle.
