Riches Increased by Giving; or, The Right Use of Mamon: Being the Surest and Safest Way of Thriving
A practical work on charitable giving
In presenting a new edition of this little volume to the Christian Public, the Publisher feels assured he need not offer any apology: the Christian duty so highly recommended by the holy and talented Author, is so clearly pointed out by the Divine teaching, as well as so forcibly and beautifully portrayed in the life of the Redeemer of the word, as to recommend it to our consideration, and to emulate every feeling heart “to go, and do likewise”. The Divine Being has presented to all in the present day, as extensive field for benevolence, and it is the privilege of such who have wealth to cast in the seed, which, according to the declaration of Holy Writ, and ably shewn by the reasoning of Mr. Gouge, will yield an abundance of fruit.
