" important contribution to our understanding of the period...there is much to learn and consider in this conclusion to her exceptional two-volume study." Daniel Carey, Eighteenth-Century Scotland "The outstanding features of Isabel River's second volume of Reason, Grace, and Sentiment are all that one could have hoped for...The two volumes surpass all available histories of eighteenth-century English and Scottish philosophy and theology in breadth, depth, clarity, and sympathetic understanding of the principals." The Age of Johnson: A Scholarly Annual "Isabel Rivers navigates well the difficult straits of late 17th- and early 18th-century theological literature...Reason, Grace, and Sentiment is a fine book; it amply fulfills River's hope that, for those interested in 17th- and 18th-century intellectual history, her 'concentration on language...succeed[s] in giving the subject a new interest and emphasis.' We anticipate Rivers's second voyage to hear the freethinkers and apologists singing." Michael Adams, Sixteenth Century News "...offers us fresh insights into the editing and publishing history of the Latitudinarians and their coherent attempts to shape the education of the clergy." James E. Bradley, Albion
