As the design of this Epistle is excellent, remarks Dr.Macknight, so is its execution, in the judgment of the bestcritics, does not fall short of its design. Ostervald says ofthe first Epistle of Peter, "it is one of the finest books inthe New Testament." Erasmus pronounces it to be "worthy of theprince of the Apostles, and full of apostolical dignity andauthority;" and adds, "it is sparing in words, but full ofsense
--{verbis pauca, sententiis differta.}" "As the true
church of Christ," says Dr. Clarke, "has generally been in astate of suffering, the Epistles of St. Peter have ever beenmost highly prized by all believers. That which we have justfinished is an admirable letter, containing some of the mostimportant maxims and consolations for the Church in thewilderness. No Christian can read it without deriving from itboth light and life. Ministers especially should study it well,that they may know how to comfort their flocks when inpersecution and adversity. He never speaks to good in anyspiritual case who is not furnished out of the Divine treasury.God's words invite, solicit, and command assent: on them a manmay confidently rely. The words of man may be true, but theyare not infallible; this is the character of God's word alone."To these valuable remarks on the varied excellences and uses ofthis inimitable Epistle, it may be only necessary to add, thatit is not only important in these respects, but is a richtreasury of Christian doctrines and duties from which the mindmay be enriched and the heart improved, with the most ennoblingsentiments.
