THE sole object of this book is to show that the immortality of the soul is not taught in God's holy word. The impulse to conceive of such a book was not given by science, but was bred of texts of Script
The author was not studying Materialism; and indeed denies that philosophy can determine whether the soul is or is not immortal., .That will appear. The surprise: that:ğuchchargeir. views awakened, came upon him;ppt, in the Porch, but in the Temple, and in his wrestlings against them he had to contend, not with :science, but with the word of God. To illustrate his helplessness in these respects take this sentence, “ So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep (Job xiv: 12); or this, “In that very day his thoughts perish” (Ps. cxlvi: 5); or Paul's very unobserved passage,—“These all, having been attested by faith, received not the promise, God, out of reference to us, having looked to the future for the something better, that they without us should not be made perfect" (Heb. xi: 39, 40).

It has grown hallowed. And though “The Soul not Immortal" is really the correct title for the belief that it dies between death and judgment, yet we must really not turn faith too suddenly even out of a heathen temple. Our doctrine is, that man dies at death: that the body is mortal, and that the soul is mortal: that the body will live again, and that the soul will live again: that the body will live forever, and that the soul will live forever : and therefore,
