Select Books on Theology. 1. Oin the Evidences of the Christian Religion in general, any of the compendious Treatises of Bp. Porteus, Dr. Beattie, Dr. Doddridge, Fawcett, Hare, or Leslie, may be advantageously read by those who have not time to peruse larger works.

Those, however, who possess leisure, may advantageously study the under-mentioned books, and in the following order. (1.) Soame Jenvns' View of the Internal Evidence of the Christian Religion, 12 mo. and Horne's Brief View of the Necessity and Truth of the Christian Revelation, 12mo, (Walker, late Sael), an excellent little manual, which ought to be in the hands of every young person. (2.) Paley's Evidences, 2 vols. 8vo. (3.) Grotius on the Truth of the Christian Rere. lation, in any translation, svo. or 12mo. (4.) Dr. Samuel Clarke's Evidences of Natural and Revealed Religion, 8vo. (5.) Locke's keasonableness of Christianity, 8vo. particularly the latter part of the Tract. (6.) Bp. Hurd's Introduction to the Study of the Prophecies, 8vo. (7.) L. Lytleton on the Conversion of St. Paul ; and (8.) Bp. Butler's Analogy of Religion, Natural and Revealed, to the Constitution and Course of Nature, svo. (9.) Dr. Olinthus Gregory's Letters to a Friend, on the Evidences, Doctrines, and Duties of the Christian Religion, 2 vols. 1 2m0.

2. Miracles. Dr. Campbell on Miracles, 12mo. and Bp. Douglas' Criterion, 8vo.

3. Prophecy. Simpson's Key to the Prophecies is a useful digest on The accomplishment of Scripture Prophecies, which may be perused by those who have not oppor: unity to read Bp. Newton's Dissertations, 2 vols. 8vo, Bp. Hurd on Prophecy, (above noticed,) Kett's History, the Interpreter of Prophecy, 2 vols svo. or Mr. Faber's recent publications on the Accomplishment of Prophecy, 8vo.

4. The Grandeur and Importance of the Doctrines nf Christianity, are well illustrated in Mr. J. Scott's Prize Essay on its Internal Evidences, 12mo.

5. The Purity of ils Moral Precepts, which is incidentally noticed in most of the writers above enumerated, is well displayed in Maltby's Illustrations of the Truth of the Christian Religion, 8vo. and in Dr. Ireland's Paganism and Christianity compared, 8vo. Mrs. More's Practical Piety and Christian Morals, 4 vols. Svo.

On this head, as well as on the preceding, many other most 'excellent writers might be mentioned; but the above, it is hoped, will prove sufficient for every purpose of general study
