THE COMMUNICANT'S COMPANION hen425
From almost all of them, important and useful instruction may be derived; but, perhaps, none of these treatises possess more excellencies, and fewer defects, than Matthew Henry's Communicant's Companion. It is much more than a general account of the nature and design of the Lord's Supper, and a set of rules for the observance of that institution; it contains in it an admirable view of Christian doctrine, experience, and duty, and is peculiarly fitted to prevent persons from taking that insulated view of the ordinance, which, with too many, converts it into a mere rite, a piece of "bodily service, which profits little." It is distinguished, in a high degree, by the characteristic good qualities of the minor works of its Author, who on a scale of literary merit, graduated on the principle which will regulate the judgment of the last day, would occupy a high place among English writers. It is very plain, very pious, and very practical.
