In accordance with the opinion of several Divines, words,
which had become obsolete, have been changed, and sentences,
evidently incorrect, have been corrected. In no instance, how-
ever, has the meaning of the author been varied. In addition
to what was at first proposed, a complete Index to the whole
work has been added. The work is executed in a style, which
it is hoped will meet the approbation of the Christian public.

In this work, the writings of Dr. Bellamy are consolidated :
writings, which have already done much, in the hands of the
HOLY SPIRIT, to detect and confound error, to discover and es-
tablish truth, to enlighten the understanding, to convince and
humble the sinner, to enlarge the views, establish and comfort
the hearts of the people of God, and to awaken them to active
exertion in His cause. May the Spirit of grace enlighten the
minds of those who peruse them, into a knowledge of the truth
as it is in JESUS.
