Página 115 - There seems to be an inconsistence in some writers on morality, in this respect, that they do not wholly exclude a regard to the Deity out of their schemes of morality, but yet mention it so slightly, that they leave me room and reason to suspect they esteem it a less important, subordinate part of true morality...
Página 65 - In the sixth edition was added, a discourse concerning the connexion of the prophecies in the Old Testament, and the application of them to Christ : and an answer to a seventh letter concerning the argument à priori.
Página 53 - ... showing the universal, precise, and admirable correspondence between predictions and events. The second part, considering the Types of the Old Testament, shewing the evidence of their being intended as representations of the great things of the gospel of Christ; and the agreement of the type with the antitype. The third and great part, considering the Harmony of the Old and New Testament, as to doctrine and precept. In the course of this work, I find there will be occasion for an explanation...
