A review of this work was published in The North American Review Vol. 20, No. 47 (Apr., 1825), pp. 444-446.

The reviewer notes, "One of the best traits of his performance is the excellent tone of ingenuous and charitable feeling, which pervades it, and the strictly moral and religious tendency of all his precepts and reflections. The style is not remarkable for precision, or elegance of phraseology, but it is animated, perspicuous, and forcible."
