THE BACKSLIDER HIS NATURE,SYMPTOMS AND RECOVERY.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) The Backslider: or an Inquiry into the Nature, Symptoms, and Effects of Religious Declension, with the Means of Recovery was originally published in 1801. Fuller's work, though, has stood the test of time.

Among all his various practical treatises, there are few, if any, of greater value than that on backsliding. Like a most skilful physician, he explains, with singular ability, the nature of the disease, lays down the symptoms of it, and prescribes the method of recovery.

upon the principle of that being the true doctrine

which is productive of the best effects ; and by

the manner in which it is introduced, This only

would I learn of you, it is intimated that the so-

lution is of itself sufficient to determine what

the true doctrine is. And what are the effects

produced by a relinquishment of the doctrines

usually denominated evangelical ? Nay, I might

say, by only a hesitation concerning them ? I

appeal to those who have made the trial. Have

you the same joy and peace in believing in your

present principles, as you had in your former
