Overview

THE substance of what follows was delivered in several unwritten addresses before the "Chautauqua Assembly," in 1878, and published in the "Assembly Daily Herald" at the time.
So many have expressed a wish to have the thoughts in a more permanent form, that I have judged it best to revise them, and, with some additions, to send them to the wider public in an inexpensive book.
Some few years since I furnished some magazine articles on "Recognition in the Future State." These were received with favor, and I have thought it proper to reproduce them here, with some enlargement. The subjects are so germane that the two discussions come into line and form a homogeneous whole, or completeness, which neither of them reaches alone.
It is believed that such is the intrinsic importance of the subject, and such its interest to our affections and our religious faith, that it deserves more attention than it has received; and the more so because of the materializing tendencies of the times under the specious guise of science and philosophy. The presentation herein given is intended for the average reader; but while it aims at a plain and intelligible style of treatment, level to the understanding of the. unlearned, it also proposes thoroughness. Awarding due honor to the holy Scriptures, as the court of ultimate appeal and supreme authority, it gives reason fair play throughout. Authority is
not once evoked to silence or answer an objection, or remove a difficulty, but only to furnish information to the understanding, and adduce new elements of knowledge to assist the reason in reaching its conclusions. The discussion is conducted on the theory that no doctrine, or phase of doctrine, can deserve faith, except on the ground that the reasons for accepting it are more convincing than any that can be adduced for rejecting it, and that every doctrine is open to fair and unreserved criticism. If, upon examination, it cannot make good its claim, it ought not to be received; but in every case the examination should be candid, painstaking, and thorough, without prejudice or passion, and especially so if the doctrine be important in matters of practical moment.
