Excerpt from From Traditional to Rational Faith: Or the Way I Came From Baptist to Liberal Christianity After much hesitation, this memoir is published. It is most painful to the author to say aught which reflects on that demination whose kindness and love he has kwn from childhood. Yet, on all hands, so much astonishment is expressed that one living so long in the remote interior of orthodoxy should have rested at last in the Unitarian fellowship, that it may be desirable and of interest to give an account of the course pursued. It is a matter of regret that the form of the story is intensely personal; but it was originally cast without any definite idea of publication, my chief anxiety being faithfully to record the exact impressions made from time to time. I trust it may be useful to many who are struggling after the same manner. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
