Excerpt from The Religion of the Crescent: Being the James Long Lectures on Muhammadanism

In publishing a third edition of these Lectures, I do not find much to alter. The James Long Lectureship was founded some years ago with the object of endeavouring to spread among the people of England reliable information with reference to the nature and teachings of the main non-Christian religions of the world, and also regarding the methods adopted by and the measure of success vouchsafed to Christian Missions among the adherents of such faiths. The Trustees endeavour to secure the delivery of lectures on Hinduism, Buddhism, Muhammadanism, etc., by competent Lecturers, whose acquaintance with their respective subjects is not only literary and theoretical but practical also. On several occasions they have appointed me to lecture on Islam, as well as on other religions and philosophies. The Lectures contained in the present volume are one result of my attempts to discharge the pleasing duties thus imposed upon me.
