The pious country parishioner [electronic resource] : Being directions how a Christian may manage every day, through the whole Course of his Life, with safety and success. Advice how to spend Religiously the Sabbath-Day, what Books of the holy Scriptures ought to be read first; and how much they out-do, in Eloquence, all the Rules of human Art. The whole Method of Education; the ill Consequence of uninstructed Children; how to tame their Passions, and make them a Comfort to their Friends, and an Ornament to their Country. The Fasts and Feasts. To which are added, Collects for the most important Virtues which adorn the Soul. Also, a Discourse concerning the Indispensible, though, in Country-Parishes, much neglected Duty, the Blessed Sacrament of the Lord's Supper. Wherein the Nature of it is described; The Obligations of Frequenting it, enforced. All the Excuses, usually brought for the Neglect of it, answer'd: The Uninstructed Soul taught what he must do, in order to be A Worthy Communicant. And because all must die, Rules are given to set the Soul right in Sickness, to prepare, for a happy Change at Death: So that in this one Treatise are contained all the Duties requisite to Salvation. .
