“Full fraught with things divine”
Two quotes, via Michael Haykin, from Oliver Hart (1723–95), the first Baptist theologian of the South:
Grant, O Lord!… [w]hen I go to thy house to speak for thee, may I always go full fraught with things divine, and be enabled faithfully and feelingly to dispense the word of life…. Teach me to study thy glory in all I do. (Oliver Hart, Diary, entry for August 5, 1754)
If I had not been willing to endure the scoff of the world, I should never have made an open profession of the religion of Jesus; much less should I have become a preacher of his much-despised gospel. (Oliver Hart, Dancing Exploded )
And, incidentally, who does not want to read a book called Dancing Exploded?
