The most that can be said is, that his ignorance of sacred criticism makes certain texts perplexing, which, if he understood the whole subject, would be perfectly plain. It is the purpose of these lectures to remove this perplexity, to point out those circumstances, in the texts alleged, which show not only that they do not teach the Trinity, but do teach something else, perfectly consistent with the divine Unity.
The reader will find in this book some repetition, obnoxious perhaps to literary criticism. The same texts are repeated in different connexions. This could not have been avoided, without sacrificing fulness and strength of argument to literary symmetry. The same texts are found to have an important bearing on different points of the general argument.
The concluding lecture was originally one of the course, but it introduces a subject somewhat foreign to the main purpose of the book, — the primitive organization of the church. It is printed in the course, on account of the illustration it contains of the meaning of the forms of baptism, and its relation to a subject at this moment deeply interesting to the public mind.
