ADVERTISEMENT TO VOLUME II.
The delay in the appearance of this second volume has been caused by the long and very serious illness of the Author ; from which, by God's mercy, he is now recovering. He has, in this volume, departed, much more than in the former, from the course of his Lectures, as verbally delivered; and has been compelled to allude more frequently to modern controversies.
The length of the whole work may need an apology. That apology must be found in the Author's conviction and experience, that concise and compendious works are uninteresting and ill-remembered, and that they grievously foster that miserable system, familiarly and expressively called cramming. The XXXIX. Articles embrace so many and such important subjects, that a brief, must necessarily be an inadequate, exposition.
