Abstract:

Primarily this work is intended for a textbook in colleges, theological seminaries, and other schools which may arrange for such a discipline in their curricula. In these days of lax thinking, which is apt sooner or later to lead to lax living, a book that stalwartly upholds the theistic world-view, and makes no compromise with the opposing mechanistic views, is certainly needed in our colleges and universities, and likewise with the reading and thinking public in general. The author is especially anxious that the book may find its way into the curricula of many of the colleges of the country, whether Church or State institutions, so that our educated youth -- our future leaders of thought and action -- may be thoroughly grounded in theistic belief, and may be saved from plunging into the maelstrom of materialism. - Foreword.
