Western Theological Semin ary, A llegheny, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., and the Christian public, as the fourth course in a series of lectures provided for by the Elliot Lectureship Fund. They are now published, at request of the Faculty, practically as delivered, any slight changes being on the form, not on the substance. It need not be said that no attempt is made to deal exhaustively with the History of Doctrine. The design of the lectures goes no further than to provide broad outlines, which may suffice to illustrate the principles expounded at the commencement, and serve as an introduction to the subject. The lectures met with acceptance at the time of their delivery, and the author is not without hope that they may be found useful to some who, without being professed scholars, feel an intelligent interest in the trend of theological thought through the centuries. Their object will be gained if the conviction is implanted that here also an increasing purpose runs through the ages, and that the labour spent by myriads of minds on the fashioning of dogma, has not, as so many in our day seem to think, been utterly fatuous, and the mere forging of fetters for the human spirit.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Progress of Dogma: Being the Elliot Lectures, Delivered at the Western Theological Seminary Allegheny, Penna;, U. S. A. 1897 In dealing with so wide a field, involving so large a mass of historical and literary detail, the author cannot hope to have escaped falling into errors which the eyes of experts will readily detect. He can only trust that they do not relate to other than minor points. That his general standpoint is out of harmony with prevalent tendencies, he is well aware, and he is prepared for wide dissent from many of his statements and conclusions. But it is because of this difference of view the lectures were written. They must rely on their own power to produce conviction.
