The Present Volume forms the Sequel and Conclusion of the Author's Hulsean Lectures “on the Canon of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament.”
The greater portion of these Discourses was preached before the University of Cambridge in the months of April and October, 1848*; and they are now published in compliance with the injunctions of the pious and learned Founder of the Lectureship, the REVEREND John HULSE.
In some of the following Lectures reference will be found to an APPENDIX, which the Author had intended, in the first instance, to add to this Volumet;
* They were also preached at Westminster Abbey, in the same year.
In committing the whole to the Press, it has not been thought requisite to distinguish what was preached from the other parts, for the delivery of which time did not suffice.
