Abstract:

"The idea of a course of Lectures upon matters at issue between Christianity and the scepticism of our day appears to have sprung up in several minds at once. Preliminary steps were taken in a Committee of the General Association of the Congregational Churches of this State. The plan was matured by a second Committee, nominated by the Congregational pastors of Boston; and has been carried into effect through the generosity of members of their churches. Every thoughtful person must feel the importance of a thorough and scholarly treatment of philosophical and religious questions. It has been the hope of those interested in providing these Lectures, that they might be able to present to the public a series of papers on important themes that would command an attentive consideration from persons of all schools of belief or speculation. The matters at issue are too serious for partisanship, having a direct bearing upon vital interests of the race and all its individuals. If this course of Lectures shall help to a knowledge of the truth, to a nobler mood of investigation, or a more earnest habit of inquiry, its projectors will be content. A similar course for next year is in contemplation"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved).
