ness of the work, and to the demands of the time, to avail himself of every source of information to which he could obtain access. The essentially popular plan of the work has not, however, allowed of minute references to books. Some have been given, when particularly required; but the titles of works thus furnished, bear only an exceedingly small proportion to the number actually consulted. It may suffice to state that (apart from Commentaries on the Acts of the Apostles) the works by which he believes himself to have been most materially aided in the present Volume, or to which he has had most frequent occasion to refer, are :-Conybeare and Howson, Life and Epistles of St. Paul, 1853 ; Lewin, Life and Epistles of St. Paul, 1850 ; Benson, History of the First Planting of the Christian Religion, 1750; Cave, Lives of the Apostles; Lorenz, Annales Paullini, 1769; and the Chronological writings of Pearson, Burton, Gresswell, Moldenhauer, Schott, Wieseler, Anger, and Gumpach ; Hemsen, Der Apostel Paulus, seine Leben, Wirken und seine Schriften, 1830 ; Schrader, Der Apostel Paulus, 1830-34; Hessel, Das Leben des Apostel Paulus, 1837 ; Scharling, De Paulo Apost. ejusque adversariis Comment., 1836 ; Biscoe, History of the Acts confirmed, 1742; Paley, Horæ Paulina, by T. R. Birks, 1850 ; Tate, Continuous History of St. Paul, 1840 ; Neander, History of the Planting, etc., of the Christian Church-translated by T. E. Ryland, 1851; James Smith of Jordanhill, Esq., Voyage and Shipwreck of St. Paul, 1848 ; Maitland, Church in the Catacombs, 1846.

In conclusion, the author trusts it will not be deemed presumptuous to express the hope—the prayer—that a blessing from above may rest upon even this humble endeavour to promote the knowledge of God's word, by rendering the apprehensive study of its contents a labour of love to many.

J. K. LONDON, January 1854.
