About Human Nature and Other Sermons

A Coal From The Altar, To Kindle The Holy Fire of ZealeHuman Nature and Other Sermonsby Joseph Butler



Excerpt:

Joseph Butler was born in 1692, youngest of eight children of a linendraper at Wantage, in Berkshire.  His father was a Presbyterian, and after education at the Wantage Free Grammar School Joseph Butler was sent to be educated for the Presbyterian ministry in a training academy at Gloucester, which was afterwards removed to Tewkesbury.  There he had a friend and comrade, Secker, who afterwards became Archbishop of Canterbury.  Butler and Secker inquired actively, and there was foreshadowing of his future in the fact that in 1713, at the age of twenty-one, Butler was engaged in anonymous discussion with Samuel Clarke upon his book on the à priori demonstration of the Divine Existence and Attributes.When the time drew near for call to the ministry, Butler, like his friend Secker, had reasoned himself into accordance with the teaching of the Church of England.  Butler’s father did not oppose his strong desire to enter the Church, and he was entered in 1714 at Oriel College, Oxford.  At college a strong friendship was established between Butler and a fellow-student, Edward Talbot, whose father was a Bishop, formerly of Oxford and Salisbury, then of Durham.  Through Talbot’s influence Butler obtained in 1718 the office of Preacher in the Rolls Chapel, which he held for the next eight years.  In 1722 Talbot died, and on his death-bed urged his father on behalf of his friend Butler.  The Bishop accordingly presented Joseph Butler to the living of Houghton-le-Spring.  But it was found that costs of dilapidations were beyond his means at Houghton, and Butler had a dangerous regard for building works.  He was preferred two years afterwards to the living of Stanhope, which then became vacant, and which yielded a substantial income.  Butler sought nothing for himself, his simplicity of character, real worth, and rare intellectual power, secured him friends, and the love of two of them—Talbot first, and afterwards Secker, who made his own way in the Church, and became strong enough to put his friend as well as himself in the way of worldly advancement, secured for Butler all the patronage he had, until the Queen also became his active friend.
