JANUARY, 1872.





Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1871, by Warren F. Draper, in the Office
of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington.



THIS standard Quarterly is devoted to able and elaborate discussions of questions in Theology, Biblical Literature, Church History, Philology, Mental and Moral Philosophy, and Classical Learning. It is a periodical of the highest class, suited to the wants of all ministers of all denominations, who value and seek to promote a thorough scholarship among the ministry. It is not sectarian, but admits articles from able writers among many different denominations.

The complete set of the Bibliotheca Sacra forms in itself a library on the most important topics, unequalled, in many respects, by any similar series, and is more frequently quoted as authority by English and American scholars, in the preparation of Cyclopedias, Bible Dictionaries, and other Biblical works, than any other work of the kind; see, for example, Hackett's Smith's Bible Dictionary.

A new Volume commences with the January number, 1872. This volume will be rich in subjects of interest to Theological Students.

Among the contributions for the year will be the continuation of the very valuable articles on Homiletics by Professor Park of Andover, on the Kingdom of Christ by Professor Harris of New Haven, on Rhetoric, by the late Professor George Shepard of Bangor; also contributions on Egyptology by Rev. J. P. Thompson, now of Berlin.

The work is handsomely printed on fine paper; each volume contains about 800 pages. The subscription price is $4.00 per annum, in advance.

THE AMERICAN PRESBYTERIAN REVIEW, edited by Prof. Henry B. Smith and Rev. J. M. Sherwood, of New York, and the PRINCETON REVIEW, edited by Prof. Lyman H. Atwater and Dr. Hodge, of Princeton, have been united, and will henceforth be published as one Review, under the joint editorship of Professors Smith and Atwater. The Review will be enlarged to 200 pages, making nearly one fourth more matter than either of the separate Reviews contained. It will be published at New York, Princeton, and Philadelphia, and all its business and financial matters conducted by Rev. J. M. Sherwood, former editor and publisher of the Presbyterian Review.

The basis of this union is equal and liberal as it relates to the two former Reviews, each editor possessing "equal editorial control, and each to possess full liberty to advocate in the consolidated Review the same doctrines hitherto advocated in the respective Quarterlies."

The consolidation of these Reviews, securing as it does the patronage and the contributors of both, will enable the Editors and Publisher to make a Review that shall be in every respect, a worthy representative of the denomination in whose interests it will be published. It is not too much to promise that it will be a much abler and more valuable Review than either of the former two, and second to no Theological Quarterly of the day. No pains will be spared to secure the ablest contributions of our ripest scholars and best thinkers.

Besides several articles bearing on Theology, Philosophy, and Biblical Literature, each number will contain papers on topics of vital current interest, and on subjects relating to the benevolent Work of the Church. Papers of special interest will be reproduced from the best British and Continental Reviews. Special attention will also be given to a careful and discriminating Review of contemporary Literature, and to the gleaning of Intelligence, Theological and Literary, from all parts of the world.

The Review will be printed on good paper and from new type, and will be made attractive in its whole mechanical execution.

This enlargement, adding 160 pages to the volume, necessitates a slight advance in the price, to one class only, however, of our subscribers. The discrimination we make in our terms, we cannot but believe, will give satisfaction to the friends of the REVIEW in general.

TERMS -1. The subscription price is $3.50 a year; two years, or two subscriptions for $6.00.

2. To Clergymen whose salaries are over $700, and not over $1000, $3.00; two years for $5.00. The same rate to Young Men's Christian Associations.

3. To those whose salaries are but $700 or less, the Review will be put at the nominal price of $2.00, in order to bring it within the reach of all our pastors. 4. To Foreign Missionaries and Theological Students the price will be $2.50. When the subscription is not paid in advance, that is, during the first quarter, 50 cents additional will invariably be required.

The first number will be issued on or before January 1st, and will contain able and interesting Articles by Professors Aiken, Schaff, and Thomas of Princeton, Union, and Lane Seminaries, and Tayler Lewis, of Union College, Dr. Herrick Johnson, the Editors, and various other writers of ability.





[Any work here named will be sent by mail, post-paid, by the publisher of the Bibliotheca Sacra, on receipt of the price affixed; or orders may be addressed to the respective publishers.]

This work is said to be the result of fifteen year's careful study, travel, and research. It has already passed through two French editions. The work bears marks of extensive research in a vast field of study, including the planetary relations of the earth, the distribution of the land and water, and the various changes which have taken place, and are now taking place on the earth, from the action of subterranean forces and the circulation of water in its various forms.
