Excerpt from A Biographical of Sketch of John Williamson Nevin, D.D., LL. D: Doctor Praestantissimus One of the most important works that has ever been published is the biography of John Williamson Nevin, written by his disciple and co-worker, Theodore Appel. It is the work of a ripe scholar and master of the great subject undertaken by him, and well has he performed his task. It is a work which required arduous painstaking and labor, though from first to last a labor of love, the final result being a magnificent monument to the memory of the grandest and blest historical personage of the present age. All persons who take a real interest in the truth as it is in Jesus, and have made sufficient progress in Christian kwledge to grasp and appropriate the profound thoughts of Dr. Nevin, should by all means possess a copy of Dr. Appel's book. And this, matter to what demination they may belong. Dr. Nevin was far above demination or Church party, a Catholic in the broadest and best sense, who knew only the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, and other. All persons who can rise to that plane of Apostolic Christianity, or have the mind and wish to do so, would be greatly benefited by reading Dr. Appel's great work.
