About this title

Synopsis:

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1878 edition. Excerpt: ...Protestant church, the chaplain of which is an old Cambridge friend of mine, Mr. Frossard. I also visited the French Protestant church, and the Protestant hospital.

In that garden is a lofty statue of the virgin Mary; and these monks at certain hours come and perform their devotions on their knees around this statue. What authority again have they for this? Not surely God's word, which says (Exod. xx. 5), "Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them." But how can we expect things to be different, when both priests and people alike are so ignorant of the Scriptures? To the Roman Catholic population of France the Bible is almost an unknown book. I entered yesterday one of their day-schools for a hundred and sixty girls, taught by nuns. I saw there many statues and pictures of Mary, but I could not see a single copy of God's Word. How privileged are our boys and girls in England, who, in all our schools (with a very few unhappy exceptions), have God's own Word...
