    This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1718 edition. Excerpt: ... the Discoarshs of t/ae generality of Preachers are too plain and by that means tedious. Preachers are too plain, and by that means become tedious; which is occasioned by THE Discourses of the generality of by their borrowing all the say from their own Stock: They would have every thing the Work of their own Meditation, in short, they would" create', There is not perhaps a more dangerous mistake in Eloquence than this. Every Orator, and the Christian still more than the prophane Orator, is an Inventor, _ and not a. Creator. 'Invention is one of theessential-Parts of Eloquence, Creation is not." TheOratofs Duty, is to search, to find and speak whatever is contained in his Subject: But the Subject is neglected and he obstinately resolves to force every thing he has to say out of his own Mind. Can he be ig-_ norant what a Christian Discourse is? Todefine it rightsily, it is a Discourse, wherein the Principles of Religion with their Consequences, are laid before the People, according to the Rules of Eloquence; the wh-ole whereof siis founded on the Scripture, Fathers and Councils. Now nothing of all this proceeds from the Preacher, or is of his own native Growth. The Order therefore Dispofitions, Turns, Figures and Style of a Dill course are all that should come-immediately from the Preacher. As for Matter and Thoughts they should be supplied by Religion, nothing belonging properly to him, beides the constructioir of them. The Christian Orator is not to intermix the least Reflection of his own; for by doing so, he would min-_ gle a prophane Fire with one that is sacredd, -e an solid Reflections and fine Turns of Elo quence, which may be sound in them, to follow some Glimmerings, some little Rays of Light, with which their weak Eyes.
