Excerpt from A Commentary on St. Paul's Epistle to the Galatians, Vol. 1: Wherein Is Most Excellently Set Forth, the Glorious Riches of God's Grace, and Power of the Gospel; With the Difference Between the Law and the Gospel and Strength of Faith Declared, to the Joyful Comfort and Confirmation of All True Christian Believers Hen a new work is sent into the world, or an old work is republished, it is customary to send with it some advertisement or preface. The present publisher of the cele brated Martin Luther's Commentary on the Epistle to the Ga~ latians does not see any reason for deviating from the common practice. He begs leave to assure the public that the Gommeh tary is printed without any abridgment from a correct copy. As to the work itself, he thinks proper to observe, that the name of Lather will'undoubt-edly, in the eyes of many persons, stamp a great value upon it. In respect to others, curiosity may be justly expected to prompt them to purchase the work of so eminent a Reformer, and especially that work which is said to have been his favourite performance. The life of Luther, prefixed to the Commentary, has been drawn up with great care from authentic documents. Not only have various pieces, which have been published as professedly giving an~account of the Life of Luther, been consulted, but also _the different historians who have written of the age in which he lived; such as Robertson, Mosheim, 8zc. 8mi As; slstance has likewise helm derived from a very curious and valuable German work, with which the publisher has been favoured by a friend. The publisher, therefore, Hatters him self, that he may with justice recommend the present edition of Luther's Commentary, 8m. Accompanied-with a new and -impartial account of' his life, and an excellent engravmg or likeness of that celebrated Reformer, taken from an original painting, as the most complete and cheap edition which is sold, or has ever been offered 'to the public. He hopes that it will give much satisfaction to his friends, and he trusts that they will recommend this edition to others. Vol. I.
