Excerpt from Belief in God: Its Origin, Nature, and Basis, Being the Winkley Lectures of the Andover Theological Seminary for the Year 1890

The following lectures were delivered before the Andover Theological Seminary during the first week of March. They form the sixth course on the Winkley foundation. That endowment is hampered by no conditions whatever; a rare and surely a fortunate circumstance for any theological school. As might have been expected from the spirit of broad scholarship which animates the Andover faculty, the Winkley lectureship has been occupied by experts in different fields of inquiry, who have treated, each from his own peculiar point of view, of a considerable variety of subjects, none of which, however, was without some special interest for the coming religious teachers and workers of our age. Among the lecturers have been some of our foremost names in theology, economics, political science, and even law.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Belief in God: Its Origin, Nature, and Basis, Being the Winkley Lectures of the Andover Theological Seminary for the Year 1890 Considered were largely historical or socio logical, and generally of a practical bearing. To add to the variety, an abstract subject was deemed desirable for the present year. But for the choice of the particular subject selected, as of course for the treatment of it, I alone am responsible. While I might perhaps claim the sympathy of the mem bers of the Andover faculty for the general Spirit and outcome of these inquiries, it would be strange indeed if they accepted all my conclusions, or even looked at com mon beliefs from the same point of view. N O apology is needed for a fresh exam ination of the character, origin, and valid ity of our belief in God. Historical studies are just now greatly in favor. But no theological belief can rest on a mere historical occurrence. An open-eyed theol ogy must have a philosophical basis. And Its fundamental and perennial inquiry is into the evidence of the divine existence. Whoever has read deeply on this sub jcet must have been struck with the fact that so many of his own thoughts were already the thoughts of others. I cannot, therefore, say that the following re?ections are original in any other sense than that. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
