9781330093122: An Appeal to the Christian Public, on the Evil and Impolicy of the Church Engaging in Merchandise: And Setting Forth the Wrong Done to Booksellers, ... Publication Societies (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from An Appeal to the Christian Public, on the Evil and Impolicy of the Church Engaging in Merchandise: And Setting Forth the Wrong Done to Booksellers, and the Extravagance, Inutility, and Evil-Working, of Charity Publication Societies

I have written the following pages with a deep conviction of the truth of the principle which I have stated, as applying to the subject. I have never done anything for which I am more willing to be solely responsible; but, having commenced without my name, i have thought it most suitable to the modesty I ought to observe, to let it still appear in that form.

To ministers of the Gospel of every name, I would make an earnest appeal. You hold an office greatly and deservedly honoured; but more honoured in its origin than men can honour it. These Societies have your favour, and could not long exist without it. You speak for them; you buy their books, and you take up contributions of charity for them. I ask you to consider the case, and what I have stated. It is certain that the public pays more for what charity does than the same would cost when produced by individual means and enterprise; and that it is, therefore, a bad economy of sacred funds. It is certain that such use of these funds does a wrong to individuals engaged in this branch of business, and drives a large amount of capital out of it, and causes it to be invested in publishing injurious books. This is a great and growing evil. Far too many religious books and children's books are published by these societies. This results from their competition to do business. Nothing can be more worldly than their manner of doing business. They encroach upon each other. For instance, the Tract Society, in her zeal to do all things, publishes a class of juvenile and illustrated looks, which are fast supplying the field of die American Sunday School Union. The former, so far as the interests of religion arc concerned, does more than enough in this department.

Put I will add no more here, but simply ask every reader candidly to consider what I have to say. If there is truth in it, if the wrongs and evils, which I here proclaim, are half true, let these societies go; let them perish as expedients that have been tried till they are no longer useful; till the principle on which they rest is known to be evil, and to be working evil more and more.
