OBSERVATIONS upon them,
been published against them.
By JOHN LELAND, D.D..
T. LONGMAN in Patér-noster Row,
O man that is not utterly unacquainted
with the state of things among us can PANESE be ignorant, that in the last, and espeL o cially in the present age, there have
* been many books publilhed, the manifest design of which was, to set aside revealed reJigion. Never in any country where Christianity is professed, were there such repeated attempts to fubvert its divine authority, carried on sometimes under various disguises, and at other times with out any disguise at all. The most noted writers on that fide, have been at liberty to produce their strongest objections; these objections have been retailed by others: and many seem to take it for granted, that Christianity hath received very senfible wounds by the several attacks that have been made upon it, and that they have greatly hurt its credit, and weakened its authority.
