THE best apology for the appearance of this book is the fact that the "Plain Guide" came before it. A few simple Instructions under that title were published in November and December, 1867. A more complete edition followed in March, 1868. The rapid sale of the cheap edition, published in May, 1868, seemed to make it a duty to revise the book from time to time, that it might be less unworthy of the work it was doing. But, as frequent changes are inconvenient, the "Plain Guide" will, for the future, be published as nearly as possible in its present form.
Hence the need of the present work, which may perhaps contain what is most wanting in its predecessor, and supply a more complete manual of Christian Doctrine, Duty, and Devotion, for private and family use.
"Resting-places" will be found to contain in its first three "Parts" nearly all the Instructions and a great part of the Devotions of the "Plain Guide." The remaining five "Parts" are new, a few Chapters only having been published before.
In the sequel to a book which aimed at being very "Plain," there will naturally be many defects and more redundancies. "Resting-places" cannot hope to satisfy Christians who have been accustomed to the use of regular "Offices." But it may be a help to some who, while needing longer and more varied devotions than those of the "Plain Guide," find simple forms most useful to their souls.
