 AUTHOR'S PREFACE TO THE ENGLISH EDITIONTo meet the wishes of my English friends I have assented to thepublication of these Lectures in English as well as in German,and, as my esteemed friend Mr. Bailey Saunders was so self-denying and obliging as to undertake the translation of them, I was sure of their being in the best hands. Whether there is asgreat a need in England as there is in Germany for a short andplain statement of the Gospel and Us history, I do not know.But this I know: the theologians of every country only half discharge their duties if they think it enough to treat of theGospel in the recondite language of learning and bury it inscholarly folios. A. HARNACK.Berlin, October 1900.
