a pastor and a doctor
It is difficult to deny, regardless of the overarching themes between divines, cambridge platonists and deist, that Whichcote provides some valuable moral insight into christian living. The first chapter entitled "The shortness of Charity," (case study of Jonah) and one finds many practical thoughts from Whichcote. I had never heard of many of these figures until just a while back. Whichcote is credited with founding the English Deist movement and this is a good introductory text to his works.
