Reading, Piety

    The writer considers there to be three books from which the soul might be taught by the Holy Spirit, namely, 'the word, works, and ways of God'. Of the second of these it is observed: 'there is another open volume to which the pious heart often turns in the spirit of holy contemplation [...]. The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth his handywork [...] all speak the wisdom, the power, and the glory of their Creator'. (290)
