As the author states in his Preface to the Second Edition, now "corrected and enlarged, and improved by the insertion of a table of contents." The author then offers some commentary on William Miller... "In the preface to his first edition, the author expresses his confidence in the piety and and sincerety of Mr. Miller; but he is constrained to say, that that confidence is much weakened by subsequent examinations of his writings, and by effects which his doctrines produce on the minds of others. In the first place he finds that Mr. M. has made no distinct acknowledgment of the person and office work of the Holy Spirit in the declaration of his religious views. (Miller's works pp. 32, 33)" Etc.
A scarce piece of Adventist literature, the first edition [also 1842] recorded by OCLC in 4 institutional holdings, this 2nd, in just one.
