Thisvolume is prepared, therefore, primarily, but not exclusively, forthe student, and with his needs in mind.The doctrines herein treated are dealt with from the standpoint of
Biblical rather than Dogmatic theology. This is evident from theplan which is followed in the work, namely, to gather together allthe Scripture passages dealing with the subject under consideration,and from them choose a required number that may be called representative;then seek to understand the meaning of these references by the studyof the text itself as well as its context and parallel passages;and finally, from the selected proof-texts, formulate the doctrinalteaching, and place such results under appropriate headings.The doctrines of God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are morefully dealt with than the doctrines which follow. This is especiallytrue of the doctrine of God. The reason for this is to set forththe method pursued in these studies, and to give a pattern for thestudy of the doctrines to follow.It is intended that the doctrines of this book should be studiedside by side with the open Bible. It is for this reason that manyof the Scripture references are indicated by chapter and verseonly. There must be constant reference to the Scriptures themselves.This volume is in such form as to be of great service in theinstruction given in Bible classes. There is probably no greaterneed in the Christian church today than that its membership shouldbe made acquainted with the fundamental facts and doctrines ofthe Christian faith. The Christian layman, therefore, who desiresa deeper knowledge of the doctrines of the Christian faith may findall the help he needs in this book. It is hoped that while it isprepared for the student, it is nevertheless not too deep for theaverage layman.The special indebtedness of the writer is hereby expressed to thefollowing works: "What the Bible Teaches," by R. A. Torrey, D. D.To this work the writer owes much with regard to the method andplan of this book. "Systematic Theology," by A. H. Strong, D. D.,has provided some rich expositions of the sacred text. "ChristianDoctrine," by Dr. F. L. Patton, has been found very helpful,especially in connection with the subject of the "Proofs for theExistence of God." Further recognition of indebtedness is alsodue to the following: "The Problem of the Old Testament," and "TheChristian View of God and the World," by Dr. James Orr; "Studiesin Christian Doctrine," by George Knapp; "Jesus and the Gospel,"and "The Death of Christ," by Prof. James Denny; "The Person andWork of Jesus," by Nathan E. Wood, D. D.There are doubtless others to whom credit is due of whom the authoris not at this time conscious, for, after all, we are "part of allthat we have seen, and met, and read." To those unknown authors,therefore, our indebtedness is hereby acknowledged._Chicago._ WILLIAM EVANS.THE DOCTRINE OF GOD
