He too has plenty to occupy his attention. For, through the influence of sophistical philosophy, that important Divine Revelation, is still in a great work, which is the grand object of measure retarded; and it is the duty of every friend of truth to do all in his power to root it up. There are thousands in the present day, who would give countenance to the work of God, were they only convinced of the divinity of the scriptures. But when they find, as by their teachers they have been led to suppose, that philosophical facts run counter to revelation; when philosophers teach one thing, and the scriptures another, they cannot be but stumbled, and at a loss which to believe. And it is in vain to urge them to abandon sense and reason for an unintelligible something which the Christian calls faith. No: the sophist wishes to make surer work of it. Of two such opposite sources of information, he reasons upon the propriety of cleaving to that which proceeds upon the surest principles, and that which, in his view, is established on matter of fact. Thus religion, through sophistry, loses many of its advocates; through the supposed opposition of philosophy to revelation, and the book of nature to the gospel of the Son of God.

As the circumstances which gave rise to the following papers, did not originate from the author himself, though nothing could have been more congenial to his mind; but from his being requested, by the Editors of a respectable periodical publication, to prepare a Review of the "Theory of the Moral and Physical System of the Universe,' of Mr. Macnab, in order to its insertion in that publication; it is deemed of importance that this should be understood. The review was accordingly undertaken, and prosecuted to a considerable length; but feeding in such a rich pasture, and surrounded by objects so grand and sublime, the notion of merely a review, was, in consequence of the advice of many intelligent and learned friends, abandoned, as altogether insufficient for such a glorious subject; so that the originally intended brief review has now given place to a more enlarged speculation, which, it is humbly hoped, will be both necessary and useful.
In an age so pregnant with great events as the present; an age which has convulsed the political, philosophical, and moral worlds; an age in which the infidel has done his utmost to disseminate his ruinous tenets; an age in which the politician and the warrior have approximated to the nith of that career, in which they had been so long struggling; an age in
And what has contributed to cherish this error the more, is, the constant, and hackneyed, and fearful procedure of many Christian teachers, in their mode of only treating what they conceive to be evangelical doctrine; but ze-standing aloof from touching on natural truths, as if they were no part of a divine system, lest they should strike
