Wesley's Notes on the Bible

9:31 Then the Church - The whole body of Christian believers, had peace - Their bitterest persecutor being converted.

Almost all the more popular recent books, for instance--the books which every one is reading and has to read--come under the category of biography; and, to meet the demand, two or three times in each season the market has to be supplied with the lives, in minute detail, of men who but for this would perhaps
