METHOD OF THE DIVINE
PHYSICAL AND MORAL.
BY REV. JAMES MʻCOSH, A.M.
OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. " In the writer of this work we meet with a man of extraordinary calibre, alike remarkable for the vigor and originality of his thinking - for the fine taste and freshness of his writing --for the extent of his learning, and the breadth and minuteness of his acquaintance with those sciences, which, from the circumstance that they are prose cuted with avidity by the greater minds of the age, impart, more than the others, color and tone to the age's thinking."— Vr. Ilugh Miller, in Witness.
"To the great task, which he has thus set himself, Mr. M'Cosh has brought great powers and ample resources, He is evidently a man of a profoundly philosophic spirit, and, at the same time, a man of extensive and varied culture in science and literature. Ilis philosophic reading seems to have been very extensive, embracing not only all the better authors in theological, metaphysical, and ethical science, but also the most approved writers in the various branches of physical speculation.”— British Quarterly Rericw.
* This is a book amongst a thousanıl, and one whose publication will hereafter be regarded as fixing a marked era in the history of philosophical and ethical inquiry in Great Britain." — Banner of Ulster.
" If this work wants the attraction of previous literary reputation in the author, the disadvantage is compensated by the surpassing interest and peculiar seasonabledess of its subject. The mero title of the book, as indicating an inquiry that must needs embrace some of the deepest questions that have ever exercised the human intellect, is sure to draw the attention of those who are addicted to speculative studies. A glance at its contents will satisfy such that it is deserving of a careful perusal; and once perused, it cannot fail, we should think, to leave an impression of wonder that, for the first time, the author should have become known to the public by a work of buch pre-eminent merit. Nor do we fear to hazard the assertion, that he has thus, by a single stride, secured for himself a position in literature such as few ever reached by a first publication, and one which he night never have attained had he put forth in separate and more limited efforts the learning and thought which he has concentrated on this."--North British Review.
BROWN, ON PETER.

It would not be easy, we think, to form a more just or happy conception of satisfactory commentary writing.”
FIRST EPISTLE OF THE APOSTLE PETER.

SENIOR MINISTER OF THE UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CONGREGATION, BROUGHTON PLACE,
UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH.

ADVERTISEMENT TO THE SECOND EDITION.
It would be doing violence to a conviction of duty, as well as to a feeling of propriety, were the Author to allow the Second Edition of these “ Expository Discourses” to go forth without an expression of gratitude for the kind reception they have met with, first, to his Master, the advancement of whose cause was their ultimate design—and then to his brethren, the promotion of whose spiritual improvement was their immediate purpose. He is deeply convinced that these two indissolubly connected objects are to be gained by the same means,—the illustration of the Divine Word; and the assurance that he has in any degree succeeded in the effectual employment of that means, is abundant compensation-great reward for any measure of labor.
The work appears, in substance and form, materially unchanged. The Author has, however, availed himself of the opportunity furnished by the reprint of giving it a thorough revision, and trusts that it will be found upon the whole improved. If it be so, it is owing in no small degree to kind suggestions from his literary friends, which are gratefully acknowledged. Among those benefactors, he must be permitted to specify his venerable kinsman, the Rev. HENRY Thomson, D.D., Penrith, and his esteemed friend, the Rev. JOHN TAYLOR, M.D., Auchtermuchty. The minute and laborious examination to which the latter spontaneously submitted, is felt as the highest compliment he could have paid to the work, and one of the greatest favors he could have bestowed on its Author. Another valued friend, the Rev. William PRINGLE, of Auchterarder, has materially contributed to the superior accuracy of this Edition, by affording it the advantage of his singularly acute eye in the revision of the sheets as they passed through the press, and to its superior usefulness, by the corrected and enlarged Indices which he has furnished.
Though a considerable number of additional Notes has been inserted, it has been found practicable, by adopting a somewhat fuller page, and omitting the Discourses appended to the original Edition, to present the Work to the Public, at once at a lower price, and in a more commodious form.
