Excerpt from Lectures on Biblical Criticism: Exhibiting a Systematic View of That Science

The following Lectures are presented to the public, in the hope that they may be found to supply a place in sacred literature, hitherto unoccupied by any single volume in the English language. The author originally intended to draw up a mere outline of the prelections delivered in his class, for the use of the theological students that come under his tuition: but he was afterwards led to extend his plan, so as to embrace what he considers an outline of all the subjects naturally belonging to the department of Biblical Criticism. Enlarging some parts of the course which he has read in manuscript for a few sessions, adding a considerable quantity of new matter, subjoining the description of new topics, and abridging other places, he determined to give a systematic view of the whole science, which might be read beyond the circle of students that attend his prelections. Dissatisfied with the books to which there is easy access, and not inclined to point, without admonition, even the more inquiring students of theology, to German productions that contain much obnoxious matter, he formed the purpose of publishing such a course of Lectures as would embrace all the topics pertaining to Biblical Criticism. The present volume is the accomplishment of this purpose: how far it may be suited to the inquiring spirit of the times, it is for the scholar to decide.
