ABSTRACT
The author considers the matter of learning from tradition by way of what the ages of Christian history have handed down to people. It considers the writings of John Williamson Nevin, an American Reformed theologian of the 19th century. He believes that one of the greatest dangers in the Christian life is for Christians to allow themselves to be swamped by the present.
