CHRIST I CREATIO AD ETHICAL MOISMBY AUGUSTUS HOPKIS STROGPRESIDET AD PROFESSOR OF BIBLICAL THEOLOGY ITHE ROCHESTER THEOLOGICAL SEMIARYCopyright 1899 byAugustus Hopkins StrongPREFACEThe title of this volume is taken directly from thefirst three of its essays, but it also suggests a thread of connection which runs through the entire book. Mostof the papers which are here collected have previouslyappeared in theological or religious journals : some of them however are now printed for the first time.Addresses delivered upon various occasions are in-cluded in the number, partly in response to requeststhat they might be put into accessible and permanentform. With slight exceptions they are now published pre-cisely as they were first given : it has not been thoughtbest to deprive them of whatever local interest or sig-nificance they may have derived from their original sur-roundings. This may also account for possible collo-quialisms and repetitions, though it is hoped that thesemay be found infrequent.The author has no wish to conceal from the readerthat the whole work has an autobiographical air. It isa series of guesses at truth. He trusts that the inti-mation of a new point of view may have its value, eventhough there is only approximation to a system and inspite of some remaining inconsistency. Doubts which
 
occur at the beginning may perchance be removed far-ther on. The author has come progressively to the con-viction that a monism which makes room for the tran-scendence of God and the separate personality of man — VllVUl PREFACEa monism which recognizes the great ethical facfreedom, responsibility, sin, and guilt — affords thekey to the great problems of philosophy and of togy. And since the God in whom we live andand have our being is none other than Christ, ancontrols the on-goings of nature and of history, weno need to be pessimists : a courageous optimism, rais rational as well as Christian. These essays are. pras a small and imperfect contribution toward thetruth. The author will be content if they shall jonly as stepping-stones for those who come afterAs the book has been written with the intent to hChrist, so it is now committed to the care of hiiwhom all things consist and who filleth all in all.Rochester Theological Seminary.September i, 1899.COTETSChrist in Creation 1-15God creates only through Christ, 2.
