These Lectures are submitted to the public, through the press, with special reference to the eternal salvation of undying souls, and not for the mere purpose of furnishing the reader with a book with which to employ his leisure moments, nor for the pecuniary advantages which may chance to be derived from the sales. Neither has the Author aimed to supply the literati with learned dissertations on common subjects ; but to present plain Bible: truths, in such a manner, that the humblest reader may learn the way to Heaven, and be confirmed in the sentiments and hope of the Gospel of Christ.
While the Author has pursued a perfectly independent course in his preparation of these Lectures, and has freely expressed the pure sentiments of the Gospel as he views them, he has carefully avoided that spirit of contention which might have been indulged in subjects of a controversial nature as are herein discussed. Thus the anxious parent, or the faithful disciple of our
Lord is furnished with the means of strengthening the faith of those who are ready to faint, and to arrest the attention of those “careless ones” whose souls he esteems more valuable than the whole world of wealth, pleasure, honor, &c., by bestowing a copy of the work, in the name of that Savior who has pledged the sanction of His Spirit to accompany the faithful labors of his servants, even to the salvation of souls, and the edification of the Church.
