AD VERTISEMENT.

THE Subscribers are informed that the Series of Questions and Answers which were intended to have formed an Appendix to this Work would have rendered it too expensive. By the advice of several judicious friends, it has been reserved, to form a separate Volume, containing about one hundred and twenty pages. It is thus prefaced in the Prospectus:— “Much catechetical instruction may be commmitted to memory without at all affecting the heart, or even acting on the understanding; but, even admitting that young minds could comprehend that system of theology which the Catechism contains—such kinds of knowledge about God seldom constitutes them more than speculative professors. It is that kind of knowledge which is more likely to “puff up” than to edify. The head has been recognized, but no appeal has been made to the heart. Hence this source, from whence proceed the issues of life, remains the same. “The second part of this Work will therefore contain, in the form of Question and Answer, the whole scope of Scripture testimony. Every part of its history, doctrine, and prophecy, being in due order recognized, while in some instances scattered lights are brought from one prophesy to another, in illustration of the Apostolic injunction, “Compare Spiritual things with Spiritual,” as the wisest and safest way of arriving at truth.” The Subscribers, if approving of this design, will have the kindness to give their Names to Mr. CoRNELIUS HANBURY, Plough Court, or to the Booksellers whose Names are given in the Title-page of this Work. If a sufficient number of Names be given to meet the expenses of printing, the Work shall be published.
