About the Author
Octavius Winslow (1808-1878) was born in London, England, and raised in New York. He was ordained as a pastor in 1833 and held pastorates in New York, Leamington Spa, Bath, and Brighton. A prolific author, his devotional writings exhibit his Reformed, experiential convictions and distinctive, warm, ardent style.
With great pleasure, we offer this edited, large-type reprint of Octavius Winslow's morning devotions, titled Morning Thoughts. These thoughts were selected by Winslow himself from his writings. Unlike other daily devotionals, such as William Jay's, these daily portions elucidate only one or two thoughts from the day's text rather than providing a comprehensive view. The advantage of this approach is that the selections are deep, heart-warming, and inspirational. As is true of all of Winslow's writings, this volume is a gem. Representing devotional writing at its finest, it is replete with memorable statements for spiritual edification. Use this book to treasure those sacred truths of Scripture that will mold your thoughts, words, and actions of Christian living.
