A REPLY TO DR LIGHTFOOT’S ESSAYS

A REPLY TO DR LIGHTFOOT’S ESSAYS
The republication of these Essays, however, has almost forced upon me the necessity of likewise republishing the reply I gave at the time of their appearance. The first Essay appeared in the _Fortnightly Review_, and others followed in the preface to the sixth edition of _Supernatural Religion_, and in that and the complete edition, in notes to the portions attacked, where reply seemed necessary. I cannot hope that readers will refer to these scattered arguments, and this volume is published with the view of affording a convenient form of reference for those interested in the discussion. I add brief notes upon those Essays which did not require separate treatment at the time, and such further explanations as seem to me desirable for the elucidation of my statements. Of course, the full discussion of Dr. Lightfoot’s arguments must still be sought in the volumes of _Supernatural Religion_, but I trust that I may have said enough here to indicate the nature of his allegations and their bearing on my argument.
