The Kingdom of Christ Delineated: In Two Essays on Our Lord's Account of His Person and of the Nature of His Kingdom, and on the Constitution, Powers, and Ministry of a Christian Church, as Appointed by Himself
Robert Carter & Brothers, 1859 - 93 頁
The following essays contain the substance of some discourses not originally designed for the press, but which I was strongly urged to publish by several of the persons to whom the volume is inscribed. I have endeavoured to throw the materials into a form more suited for private perusal than that of the discourses originally delivered. Among the subjects here treated of are some on which I have not only reflected much, but have written and published from time to time for above twelve years. And it may not be impertinent here to remark, that in respect of some most important points now maintained, I may appeal (besides the arguments contained in the following pages) to the strongest of all external confirmations, the testimony of opponents. Not that I have ever written in a polemical form, or sought to provoke controversy; but by opponents, I mean those who have maintained, and who still maintain, opinions opposite to those I have put forth; but who have never, to the best of my knowledge, even attempted any refutation of the reasons I have adduced. - Preface.
