Excerpt from The Works of Thomas Goodwin, Vol. 1 Nor must our obligations to modern German theologians be for gotten. Their works, the best of them, need to be read with dis crimination. And in those which have been brought within reach of the English student, some of which are deservedly in high esteem, there is even in the best, with scarcely an exception, t only much that is prolix and wearisome, but, specially to those of us who read them under the disadvantage of a translation, much that is misty, and t a little that is questionable. These are within our reach, and much used by many of our clergy and ministers. N o theological library can be complete without them: To the student and to the preacher they are storehouses with which they can ill afford to dis pense, if they are to be as scribes well instructed unto the kingdom of heaven, bringing forth out of their treasure things new and old.
