PRE FACE.

MY OBJECT, in the preparation of the following work, has been to present the theistic argument, and the replies to the prominent modern skeptical theories, in such a shape as the best to impress the American mind of the present day. I have sought to reach this object in three ways : First, by selecting from the vast material before me such main topics as seem most likely to affect those whom I address; second, by relying almost exclusively on this country as the basis for induction and illustration; and, third, by reducing the argument to such an analysis as will best subserve the purposes of students.

F. W. GAMBIER, OHIO, April, 1859.
