DIVERS SUBJECTS IN THEOLOGY:
LICENTIATES, OR CANDIDATES,
THE GOSPEL MINISTRY,
AMERICAN YOUTH IN GENERAL.
BY WILLIAM M'GIRR.
PRINTED BY W. S. HAVEN, CORNER MARKET AND SECOND STREETS.
It is hardly necessary for the author of the following volume to make any excuse for its publication, since, notwithstanding the multiplicity of books on the same subjects for which this is principally designed, we have long believed that such a work was much needed; and especially to the youth, to whom it is chiefly dedicated—seeing the most part of works upon those subjects are sectional and partial. But this work is designed for all ranks and degrees of men. The doctrines on Theology are treated something different from the popular Theology of the day; which, if carried out practically, we believe it will raise the moral standard above what it now is.
Perhaps my style of writing may seem not only different, but even contrary to that which is generally used by the men called Divines, with which I am not concerned: inasmuch as I confess myself not only no imitator and admirer of the popular school Theology, but an opposer of it as such—by whose labor, I judge the Christian religion to be so far from being bettered, that it is rather destroyed.
