THE

PRE FACE

T

Here never appeared, I believe, among Christians, so general a Duan tion as in the present Age, to the C. ristian

Religion, in Men preté: 'ing at least to Reason, and Learning, and Na ral Religion, and Moral Vertue. And tho' I could have little Encouragement to hope, that I should write any thing which might much prevail with Men of these Accomplishments ; yet I was persuaded, that so good a Cause, tho' but in weak Hands, could not fail of some Effect upon all that would be at the pai 'to consider it. And to this purpose, I thi..oot, the best way would be, not to read Ledures as it were, of Anatomy upon the severa' of it, and represent it Piece-meal, Jika fets Carcass, divided and diffected ;

had been able to shew never so much Skill in the Operation; but to give an entire View of the Grounds and Reasons of Christianity, the connexion of its Parts between themselves and the Preference which it has to all other Religions; from whence, I knew, it must appear in as true a Light, and with as much Life and Force, as it could do under the Disadvantages, which might be expected from no

better.
