"It is come, I know not how, to be taken for granted, by many persons, that Christianity is not so much as a Subject of Inquiry; but that it is, now at length, discovered to be fictitious. And accordingly they treat it, as if, in the present age, this were an agreed point, among all people of discernment; and nothing remained, but to set it up as a principal subject of mirth and ridicule, as it were by way of reprisals, for its having so long interrupted the pleasures of the world. On the contrary, thus much, at least, will be here found, not taken for granted, but proved, that any reasonable man, who will thoroughly consider the matter, may be as much assured, as he is of his own being, that it is not, however, so clear a case, that there is nothing in it. There is, rather, strong evidence of its truth; but it is certain no one can, upon principles of reason, be satisfied of the contrary. In simple terms, this treatise will explore the analogy of religion, natural and revealed, to the constitution and course of nature. Additionally, two brief dissertations are included, which address the notion of personal identity and the nature of virtue"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)
