[Note 4, Chapter Two, in print version]

To this Evangelical emphasis upon preaching the word of God we may compare Keble's remarks upon reading the scriptures: "If you will really keep these three or four simple rules, To read thoughtfully and regularly, a little at a time, of the sayings and doings of our dear Lord in the Gospels; praying also regularly, and abstaining from bad books and bad company; a blessing, be sure will be upon you; it will be as when the rock was smitten; the dry, hard, barren place will break out in springs of water" (II, 137; emphasis added).
