HE following pages are designed to supply a want in popular theological literature. They do not appeal to professed students, or to readers able to appreciate the scholarly works of Hagenbach, Shedd, and Cunningham. But there are many Sunday-school teachers, village preachers, etc., who have a fair general acquaintance with the leading facts of the Church's external history, and yet have not, and know not where to obtain, more than the vaguest notion of the development of the Church's Creed. The popular manuals of Church history, almost without exception, assume, tacitly or openly, that their author's personal or sectarian creed was that of the apostolic age; and the whole history of doctrine is, for them, a record of the defence or perversion of this cherished system. The present work, on the contrary, aims at strict impartiality; and although it is perhaps impossible that any treatise of the kind should be theologically colourless, the writer deems himself to have failed of his purpose wherever he has departed from a neutral attitude, or betrayed his own doctrinal or ecclesiastical opinions.
Attention is invited to the Appendices, which contain a large amount of information that is nowhere else to be found in so condensed a form, and some of which can only be obtained from rare and costly books.
