TH

HE Fifth Part of Mr. Stackhouse's

Body of Divinity, concerning the great Precepts of Moral and Evangelical Righteousness, has been greatly esteemed for its Method, Brevity, and Perspicuity, and is essentially necessary to every Christian. It was thought therefore, that if this Part were published separately, it would not be unacceptable to the Publick ; as every one might then have an Opportunity of reading this excellent Treatise, and of purchasing it at an easy Rate.
