PREFACE.

THIS treatise, as originally written, included two long chapters on Revelation and the Bible, and was designed, as a whole, to show that the works and the word of God have one voice. But the chapters on Revelation and the Bible are so mainly a sequel to the others, and have so much separate scope of their own, that they are now placed aside for separate publication.

CHAPTER I.

Nature. The evolution theory ; its alleged facts respect-

development theory; its pleas from oneness of plan, from
gradation of species, and from ascension of species ; its

Nature with God, as to creation only ; as a synonym for
the word “ God ;” as a synonym for the phrase "works of
God ;” as to natural religion ; as to the Divine moral

as to the native state of physical things ; as to the native
moral state of fallen man; as to the renovated state of
man ... ... ... ... ooo ooo ooo ... ... ... ... ...
