The Modern Martyr and Other Writings by Timothy East

“These writings by Timothy East were first published in England in a journal called “Spirit and Manners of the Age”. “The author is the same who prepared the Evangelical Rambler, which has been received with so much favor. We have collected the series as far as it went, in this small volume, and have added to it such other selections from the same work, as appeared to us peculiarly useful and important. We are confident, that it all tends to the interest of pure and undefiled religion.” — From the original publisher.

Timothy East (1817-1892) was the writer of the famous “Evangelical Rambler” which was later republished under the title “The Sheepfold and the Common.”
