The design of the Publishers and Editors of the BIBLICAL AND THEOLOGICAL LIBRARY was declared, before either volume of the series had appeared, to be the furnishing of ministers and laymen with a series of works which should constitute a compendious apparatus for advanced study on the great fundamental themes of Christian Theology. While the doctrinal spirit of the separate works was pledged to be in harmony with the accepted standards of the Methodist Episcopal Church, it was promised that the aim should be to make the entire Library acceptable to Christians of all evangelical Churches. The following works have already appeared:
Harman-INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.
Crooks and Hurst-THEOLOGICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA AND METHODOLOGY.
Hurst-HISTORY OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH. 2 vols.
A few other works will follow these, in order to complete the circle of fundamental theological science as originally contemplated by the Publishers and Editors.
The reception which has been accorded these works has been 80 prompt, cordial, and sympathetic that the Publishers are led to believe that the Christian public is satisfied that the pledges made at the ontset have been faithfully kept.
In every treatise in the future, as in those of the past, the latest literature will be recognized and its results incorporated. May we not hope that the same generous favor with which members of all evangelical denominations have regarded the undertaking from the beginning will be continued throughout the series ?
