A scene from the Leben der heiligen Altväter (1482)

The Inward Witnessand Other Discourses

London: T. Woolmer, 1885

Seventeen chapters, 296 pages.

“Most of these Discourses were officially delivered, as they severally show, on important occasions; and their publication is in a certain sense matter of duty. A few have been added in deference to the more or less authoritative request of some who heard them. The title of the first Charge has been adopted for the volume, because it suggests the leading idea that runs through the whole: the indwelling of the Incarnate Son of God in the believer, as the fundamental truth of Christian life.”
