A journey thro' the world: in a view of the several stages of human life. Containing I. An examination into the beginning of our existence, or coming into the World. II. Directions to those, who have the government of children how to guard them in those innocent days against the corruptions, which presently offer themselves, thereby to deprive them of that innocence, that they are then endued with. III. Instructions to those of further years, how to employ their time innocently, and to guard against being led into the way of destruction. IV. Endeavours to confirm and strengthen those of riper years in the ways of religion and virtue. V. Perswasions to such, who have been overcome by bad examples, or enticing gratification; and who are thereby in the snare of the devil, to return speedily from their present imminent danger to a hearty sorrow for their lost time, and to make good the great business, for which they were sent into the world. VI. Encouragement to all to persevere in a course of godliness without weariness. VII. The advantages, that will be reaped by a holy life. Adapted to common capacities, and fit for all sorts and conditions of men. By Benjamin Parker, author of the Philosophical meditations.
