Robert Traill was endowed with a first-class mind and had enjoyed a very complete theological education. Nevertheless, his sermons were not meant to appeal to the learned. He strove throughout to promote practical godliness. Every reader who shares his outlook will find him warm, instructive, and encouraging.
J.C.Ryle, who frequently quotes from Traill in his writings, introduces one lengthy extract with the words, 'It has done me good and I think will do good to others.'
This edition contains ten additional sermons not included in the 1975 Banner of Truth edition, which are appended to volume 2.
