[n/a] : Bible

Extract from the journal of Adam Dodd: 'When I first came on board the A-, I was as thoughtless as anyone on board; but being soon afterwards made a teacher of a class, I felt myself compelled to attend the evening services. [comes to see himself as a sinner and need of repentence] ...I then sate down in the greatest mental distress. Taking my Bible, I calculated on the opposition I should meet with... I kept continually and anxiously searching my Bible... In this state I remained some time, praying and reading, and fearlessly yet meekly meeting with every opposition.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Adam Dodd      Print: Book
