THE ECLECTIC MONTHLY ADVERTISER.

THE BRITISH EVANGELIST,

AND JOURNAL OF THE
Progress of Rebibal in the Christian Churches.

A MONTHLY MAGAZINE.

PRICE THREEPENCE.

The BRITISH EVANGELIST has now a history of Eighteen months, and, considering the many obstacles to success which meet every new enterprise in religious periodical literature, that history has been of an interesting and encouraging character. The Magazine is gradually gaining “a name and a place ” among the still comparatively small number of decidedly Christian monthlies. Wbilst the press teems with publications of an injurious tendency, and pours forth an abundance of works from which the great facts and truths of the Gospel are wholly excluded—nay, in which Christianity is directly assailed — it has not furnished, in any adequate proportion, antidotes to this moral poison.

The BRITISH EVANGELIST was among the first to recognise the American Revival as a fact, and to record its wide progress and glorious results. By means of it many Christians in our own land have been led to pray for and expect similar blessings. In some places the church has had to rejoice that the Lord has visited His people, awakening souls, and creating an ardent aspiration after “times of refreshing from His presence." The part which the BRITISH EVANGELIST has been honoured to take in this work is such as should heartily commend it to the prayers and sympathies of all who desire the spread of the Gospel. It is the offspring of rerival sentiment, and is to be the instrument for revival work, and the medium of revival intelligence. Its promoters would have it the companion and reporter of the progress of that angel, who, flying in mid heaven, bas "the everlasting Gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth." The work is with them truly a work of faith and a labour of love." They seek not for themselves any pecuniary profit or emolument. In the event of any gain accruing from the publication, they are prepared to devote it to the great work of Christian Evangelization.

Let the friends of Jesus rally around the BRITISH EVANGELIST, and unite in earnest effort and fervent prayer that it may prove more than ever, through the blessing of God, a means of revival to the churches of Christ, and a messenger of salvation to the lost. (Eph. iii. 20, 21.)

The last chapters of the Book of Revelation present to us man, partaker of the Divine nature, and the
Divine life, in heaven. The links which connect the two are the fall, and the redemption which is by
Christ Jesus.

The obiect of the author in this work is to trace, rather in a suggestive than in a formal way, the
