    The sermon, which is on the text 1 Cor. 1. 21–24, has been published 'at the request of the [Wesleyan-Methodist] conference' (19). It begins by noting that in the PRESENT 'age of Missionary and Bible Societies a question has been revived, Whether the knowledge of GOD, and its happy effects, be not attainable by the mere exercise of reason, without the aid of revelation'. Emory notes that, in the quoted text, St Paul Paul, Saint (fl. 1st century) CBD

appeals to historical facts to show that 'the world by wisdom knew not GOD'. (19) Argues that 'The proper province of reason and science is in the service of revelation' (19–20). In this province they are both 'honourable and useful', but when they 'aspire to the ascendancy' and seek to 'supersede the necessity of revelation,—God takes care to humble their pretension, and to pour confusion on their pride'. Divides the subject of the sermon into two parts: 'The insufficiency of human wisdom for the purpose of saving knowledge' and '[t]he means by which it pleases GOD to enlighten and save the world'. (20) Endeavours to place the subject in a practical light. Contrasts knowledge of God before the Christian era among the Jews and the Gentiles. Dismisses the notion that the Jews had their exclusive knowledge of God as a result of intellectual superiority or from innate ideas, and asserts that it came instead from divine revelation. Points out that despite all the 'improvements' made in other branches of knowledge 'by the study and wisdom of men, none has ever been made in the knowledge of GOD, except by revelation of himself'. The idea of 'creation out of nothing' came from revelation, and 'hence the eternity of matter [...] was universally held by those who were unenlightened by revelation'. It is a truth which has the 'clearness and certainty' of 'proper knowledge', unlike the 'imperfection and uncertainty' characteristic of human discoveries. (22) The Jews were, like other nations, inclined to superstitions and idolatries, from which they were only reclaimed by divine revelation. Reviews the religious beliefs of the most accomplished pagans of the pre-Christian era, including the Egyptians, Persians, Greeks, and Romans. Pays particular attention to the views of Plato Plato (428–348/7 BC) DSB

, who 'certainly said many excellent things of a supreme incorporeal intellect, whom he called God' (25). Dismisses the objection that Plato and others 'concealed their real sentiments, from fear of the fate of SOCRATES Socrates (469–399BC) CBD

'. Concludes: 'So far was the world, by wisdom, from knowing GOD, that just where philosophy and reasoning flourished most, just there precisely did superstition and idolatry also most abound', and illustrates this from the case of Athens. (26)

    Asserts that Christianity has 'complete moral efficacy' to 'correct the most corrupt state of society'. Given that there are Christian countries of long standing where serious social ills exist, concludes that the remedy has been 'adulterated' and improperly applied in some instances. Nevertheless considers that the genuine remedy 'is not lost, as appears from many sufficiently attested cases of relief or cure; and if moral disease still rages, and, in certain districts, spreads its most concentrated contagion [...] the fair inference is, that such districts have been too much neglected by those in whose hands this powerful panacea has been deposited'. Observes that a 'more extensive application' of the treatment is the pressing issue to which Thomas Chalmers's Chalmers, Thomas (1780–1847) ODNB

The Christian and Civic Economy of Large Towns is addressed. (40) Discusses the alleged causes of the degenerate state of urban populations and attributes it instead to 'the non-application of Christianity' (42). Argues that 'Moral and political evils are inseparably involved', and that statesmen and political economists need to understand the character of 'genuine Christianity'. Claims that, '[b]y a silent operation, and by methods undignified by the technicality of science, it [...] infallibly works out, wherever it prevails, all the ends of good government, and all the results of the science of political economy'. The reviewer does not mean to suggest that political economy 'is useless', since it 'may direct efforts, where it cannot create the principle from which they must spring', but it is 'mere intellectual play, without the operating and corrective influence of religion'. (43) It would be like applying the principle of astrology (were that principle shown to be valid) while ignoring the influence of the most recently discovered planets; the projects of the 'Economist' are affected by 'moral counteractions' which can only be controlled by religion (43–44). Exemplifies this from the poor laws, which encourage 'the spirit of dependence, improvidence, and pauperism', a moral evil 'which cannot submit to a scientific or political cure'. (44) An extract from the book under review suggests that Christianization can have the desired effect without Christian workers knowing about it: 'as well may the inventor of a philosophical apparatus disown the aid of those artizans, who, in utter ignorance of its use, only know how to prepare and put together its materials, as may the [...] speculator in the walks of civil economy disown the aid of those christian labourers, who, in utter ignorance of the new doctrine of population', only know how to lead others to Christian virtue. The reviewer suggests that Christians should look to the 'deep and divine philosophy, of Religion' rather than so much to 'human laws and science'. (45) Observes that these truths have been well expressed by Chalmers, and concludes that the 'practical and stirring nature' of the work 'renders it one of the most important works which has, for many years, issued from the press' (46).

    The second part of the sermon focuses on 'The means by which it pleases GOD to enlighten and save the world' (83), but continues to make reference to the inadequacy of human reason for religious knowledge. Observes that the Bible is 'in many respects, a learned book', and that 'to be acquainted with its learning, is not only desirable and ornamental, but highly useful'. Observes that learning is required to understand its 'natural history, its philosophy, its astronomy, and all those incidental branches of science which tend either to solve its difficulties, or to elucidate its history'. However, such learning is unnecessary to understand the gospel. Draws an analogy between the gospel and the natural world: 'The earth on which we tread,—the waters which encompass it,—the sun, the moon, and stars, which sine above us, and shed their rays around us,—all these have mysteries and glories to exercise the utmost learning. But, thanks be to God, this is not essential to the enjoyment of their substantial benefits'. (86)

Discusses the need for education to be suffused with religious instruction and contrasts the situations in England and Scotland in this regard.

of 'locality' (i.e. the development of local systems of Christian mission), applying it to the Wesleyan-Methodist Church. Approves of Chalmers's advocacy of the use of lay people in Christian missions, quoting at length from his defence of the practice. Chalmers champions the practice of training clergy in 'the general literature of the times', so that 'some of them shall attain an eminence of authority and respect in the other sciences' (175). This is necessary so that Christianity should have its defenders 'in every quarter of human society; and there should be among them such a distribution of weapons, as may be adapted to all the varieties of that extended combat, which is ever going on between the church and the world' (175–76). Argues that while such learning is necessary to uphold Christianity among the well-educated and powerful, it is not generally necessary for purposes of mission among the poor.

    Observes that it is only recently that people in 'this christian and inquisitive country' (177) have become fully aware of the moral and general wretchedness of the idolatrous nations. This disclosure has been made by missionaries, rather than by military men, merchants, or 'philosophers, who, though they have enriched science by their researches among the peculiar natural productions and phenomena of those distant regions, or more accurately fixed their geographical limits, or opened new fields for literary industry, have left matters of religion either untouched, or very superficially noticed'. While missionaries have contributed much to 'useful and curious knowledge', they have contributed more to 'the knowledge which to christian philanthropy is in the highest degree interesting'.

    Quotes a passage justifying the book as an aid to the serious study of the Bible: '"The visible world," he remarks with equal truth and piety, "so magnificent and so beautiful, is a temple worthy of GOD the CREATOR: the spiritual world, described in the pages of Scriptures, is a temple equally worthy of GOD the REDEEMER. Both equally demonstrate the mercy and the love of the same all-wise Providence to the bodies and the souls of men. [... I]f the researches of science to promote the happiness of the body, or to illustrate the laws and the harmony of the universe, are regarded with favour, in such a manner it is trusted the present attempt will be received, which is intended to promote the happiness of the soul, and to elucidate the great scheme of ALMIGHTY GOD in the moral government of the world"' (314–15). Further quotations stress the book's value for the learned and unlearned alike. A quotation discussing the continued outworkings of divine providence continues: 'HE rules over the least as well as the greatest events; and as the beauty of a flower, and the mechanism of an insect, declare the universality of his Providence as a loudly and as plainly as the sun in the heavens, or the moon walking in her brightness; so does the declaration of his own immutable Scripture, that not a sparrow falls unpermitted to the ground, convince the Christian who views the stupendous events recorded in his Bible, that he too is not and cannot be unnoticed nor neglected in the government of the universe' (316).

, on the grounds that they contained attacks on the Bible. Welcomes the fact that 'not merely the inferior offenders have been visited, but that the great culprits, those who make taste and science the media through which to convey the poison, have been told that they are making a market of vice, and that the laws of an insulted country shall not be employed in their favour'. Argues that the issue is not one of 'freedom of discussion' since poetry and lectures for medical students are not the proper place for theological investigation, and the 'introduction of infidel principles' in such cases is 'gratuitous'. (318) Observes that the 'reading and studious youth of our country, are the class of persons most endangered by these publications', and urges: 'The sin of reading bad books ought to be pointed out by Minister, and their circulation as much as possible prevented by Parents, Guardians, and the Managers of Public Libraries'. Discusses this point at some length, and observes: 'Books are put within the reach of females, which it is a stain upon their virtue to say they have read, and an insult to them to inquire whether they have read through'.

    Observes: 'It is a matter of wonder, as a powerful writer of the present day has observed, that every idea that rises in our minds should not excite, as its secondary impression, a recollection of the presence of GOD. [...] The ennobling, the awful, and yet delightful idea of the Great Cause of our being and felicity would doubtless be suggested to our minds by every thing around us, and within us, were man now in the perfection in which he was first created'. Describes the devotional frame of mind as a plant which, with 'all the disadvantages of climate' can be 'raised by the grace of GOD to considerable maturity'. Declares: 'The spirit of devotion, like a flame that receives unseen supplies, may burn with unusual brightness even in a damp atmosphere'. (436) Argues that true devotion consists in breathing 'back again those heavenly and holy purposes which the DIVINE SPIRIT has inspired'. Contrasts it with the 'sentimental adoration of Deism, or even of philosophical Christianity'. (437)

    The article consists of two letters, one from the author to Adam Clarke and Clarke's reply. The author having noted that an experiment similar to Clarke's had been carried out some years before, Clarke replies giving further details, and suggesting that his own experiment was more impressive. He concludes that the 'whole has the most direct tendency to show the inexhaustible power with which God has endued the seeds of vegetables, and especially those which are of most use to man' (650).

    In an extracted passage contrasting 'Heathenism and Christianity', Leifchild observes: 'Where genius has blazed, and the arts and sciences have flourished [...] the monuments of benevolence have been few and small'. He suggests that, by contrast, Christianity has been a blessing 'in every point of view'. Under its influence, people 'ventured on dangerous seas, they explored unknown countries, they endured unheard-of privations; not to increase their knowledge; not to bring ot light the monuments of ancient genius; not to augment to the stores of the learned and curious; but to lessen the sum of human woe; to recover men from the state of savages to humanity, and to GOD.'

    The report concerns the survival of bees after prolonged immersion in honey and boiling. The afterword observes: 'Surely, "the Bible of Nature," to borrow the somewhat insidious expression of an Arch-infidel, must be allowed to have its mysteries, as inexplicable by us as any that are contained in the Bible of Revelation'. Quotes observations on the above report from 'a late number of a publication notorious for its sneers at Christianity', which states: '"Such a miraculous suspension of the faculties of life baffles our philosophy, and leaves us only to admire that hidden economy of nature, in her most minute productions, which we must despair ever to understand"'.

    Relates: 'As the nearer the iron approaches to the magnet, the more rapidly it moves towards a contact with it, so the nearer the dire disease brought her to her exit from earth, the more swift was her soul's approximation to Him who is the centre and source of bliss: and as the more strongly the steel is impregnated with the magnetic virtue, the more powerfully will it be inclined to attract other metal, and communicate its own quality; so her spirit, ripening for eternity, longed to be the instrument of communicating a measure of its happiness to all around her' (816).
