Gotthold's Emblems by Christian Scriver

‘Gotthold’s Emblems’ is a unique book of wisdom devotions written by Rev. Christian Scriver. From the time of its first publication this beloved volume has gone through more than 28 editions. You may shake or push the magnetic needle from its position, continued Gotthold, but it returns to it the moment you leave it to itself. In like manner, believers may fall into sin, and deviate from the line of duty; but no sooner have they leisure for reflection, than they endeavor to amend, and resume a life of godliness.
