'HIS little volume is the Fourth of the series
on Christian Evidences promised five years ago, in the Preface to my Bridge of History.'
Disputes concerning the Miracles form the shifting sands of theological controversy. Sceptical objections to the Miracles are perpetually taking some new shape, or the old objections are disguised and presented as if they were new. I have thus found it difficult to put into a book form the various lectures, in defence of the Miracles of Christ, that I have addressed to audiences of little learning, but, I think, of good common-sense, during the last twenty years. For my manner of defence has, necessarily, been often altered, because the mode of attack has been often changed.
'The Bridge of History over the Gulf of Time is now in its fourteenth thousand; and the two volumes which succeeded that abstract of the Historical Evidences of Christianity, have not lain as dead lumber on my publishers' shelves. this popular condensation of the argument for the Miracles of Christ will meet with the like favourable acceptance, and be found useful in removing the doubts which too often bewilder even the most
earnest seekers after Truth.
