When asked why he never wrote a book, John ('Rabbi') Duncan (1796-1870) replied, 'I cannot write, I'm just a talker.' Duncan had a genius for expressing profound thoughts in brief epigrammatic sayings. John Brentnall has brought many of these sayings together from original sources and arranged them under subject headings. There is also a biographical introduction and selected comments from Duncan's contemporaries. The book will delight both those who know Duncan and anyone seeking an introduction to this unique man. 'An excellent little volume . . . worth its weight in spiritual gold to any godly reader,' says a recent reviewer.
