On the author (Source: Chambers' Cyclopaediae of English Literature. Third Edition. Chambers: London: 1876, p. 660):
Henry Blunt (1794-1843) was for several years incumbent of Trinity Church, Chelsea, and was not only a popular preacher but a voluminous author: Some of Mr. Blunt's religious tratises are said to have gone through forty editions in England, besides having a great circulation in America. He belonged to what is known as the Low Church or Evangelical Party.
