Newton, John – Messiah, Vol 1 and 2

      The following 50 Sermons, as to the substance (for most of them are considerably abridged) were preached at a public and numerous assembly. And, therefore, an accurate and logical discussion of the several subjects was not aimed at. They are rather popular discourses; in which, the Author, though he wished not to treat the politer part of his auditory with disrespect, thought it likewise his duty, so to adapt his manner to the occasion, as to be intelligible to persons of weak capacities, and in the lower ranks of life. He conceives himself to be a debtor to every class of his hearers; and that he ought to endeavour to please all men, with a view to their education; but, farther than this, not to be greatly affected, either by their approbation, or by their censure.
