γνωρίσας ἡμῖν τὸ μυστήριον τοῦ θελήματος αὐτοῦ, κατὰ τὴν εὐδοκίαν αὐτοῦ, ἣν προέθετο ἐν αὐτῷ εἰς οἰκονομίαν τοῦ πληρώματος τῶν καιρῶν, ἀνακεφαλαιώσασθαι τὰ πάντα ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ, τά τε ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς καὶ τὰ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.—EPH. i. 9, 10.
HAMILTON, ADAMS AND CO., PATERNOSTER ROW; R. GLADDING, 76, WHITECHAPEL ROAD.
HE first edition of this book consisted of
Sermons preached to the Author's congregation in Madras. Under the advice of friends interested in the subject, the work has been divested of its sermon form and character. Much, therefore, that was appropriate to it in its former shape has now been omitted, and, more or less, the whole has been recast. Several portions of the previous volume have been re-written, in order to expand or to strengthen the argument. Two entirely new chapters have been added: one on the 'A Priori Considerations bearing upon the Subject,' and another, entitled, 'The Ultimate Subjection of All Souls to God, considered in Relation to the Free Will of Man.'
