Excerpt from Old Truths in Modern Lights: The Boyle Lectures for 1890, With Other Sermons
Notwithstanding the well-known proverb about making excuses, I must venture to apologize for an obvious defect in the present book. The discourses contained in it were written at different times, without any idea that they would emerge from the stage of manuscript. On being requested to publish a volume of sermons, I selected for this purpose those which appeared to me to have more relation than others to questions which at the present day often exercise, and sometimes disturb, the minds of thoughtful Christians. Thus, occasionally, I have had to choose between repeating myself, and destroying the coherence of a sermon by making excisions; and, on the whole, I have preferred the former course.
