The present Volume is a republication, with corrections and large additions, of several short Works which I printed a few years ago separately: and which, having passed through more or fewer editions, have become out of print: I have thus been furnished with an opportunity of revising and consolidating them. These works were: 'The Veracity of the Books of Moses:' 'The Veracity of the Historical Scriptures of the Old Testament:' and 'The Veracity of the Gospels and Acts,' argued from undesigned coincidences to be found in them when compared in their several parts: and in the last instance, when compared also with the writings of Josephus. They were all of them originally the substance of Sermons delivered before the University, some in a Course of Hulsean Lectures, others on various occasions. And though two of them, The Veracity of the Books of Moses, and The Veracity of the Gospels and Acts, were divested of the form of Sermons before publication, the third, The Veracity of the Historical Scriptures of the Old Testament (which constituted the Hulsean Lectures), still retained it. I have thought that by reducing this to the same shape as the rest, and combining it with them, the whole would present a continued argument, or rather a continued series of independent arguments, for the Veracity of the Scriptures, of which the effect would be greater than that of the separate works could be, which might be read perhaps out of the natural order, and which were not altogether uniform in their plan.
