Description The Correspondence and Diary of Philip Doddridge, D. D, Vol. 5 de John Doddridge Humphreys:

Excerpt from The Correspondence and Diary of Philip Doddridge, D. D, Vol. 5: Illustrative of Various Particulars in His Life Hitherto Unknown- With Notices of Many of His Contemporaries- And a Sketch of the Ecclesiastical History of the Times in Which He Lived The example furnished by the experience and conduct of the great and the good of past generations is of the first importance to the living. It is a chart by studying which we may guard against the hidden dangers which lurk beneath the ocean of life, and are most perilous when all is tranquil in the joyous morning of our youth. What would be said of a mariner, who, on going to sea, threw overboard the compass which would indicate his course? He, however, who gives us but half a character when he affects to paint the whole, does worse- he teaches us to form a false estimate of human nature, and a delusive idea of the providence of God! From the prevalence of this error half the fruits of virtue have fallen prematurely, and the characters of good men have appeared of so abstract and spiritual a nature, that they have defied imitation, and given a pretence for designing writers to represent them as specious hypocrites, or amiable enthusiasts. The ample nature of the materials, and the decorous lapse of time have given me an opportunity of doing justice to the example of Dr. Doddridge, by presenting his character at large before the world.
