Informações: Este livro era uma obra rara, muito difícil de ser encontrada, até ser adicionada ao Site Anna Kingsford. Isso foi possível graças a termos recebido uma cópia desta obra, que nos foi muito gentilmente enviada pelo Sr. Brian McAllister, da Inglaterra, a quem são devidos os nossos mais sinceros agradecimentos.
A seguir uma fotocópia da capa original, as páginas de título, o Prefácio, a Sinopse das duas Conferências incluídas na obra com os links para o texto completo da obra, em Html, em inglês:
“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they . . . searched the Scripture daily, whether those things were so.”
– Acts xvii, 11.
(Delivered originally before the Sunday Lecture Society of London).
WHETHER or not the Solution, given in these Lectures, of the “Religious Difficulty” in our National Education, be acceptable for practical application, is a question other than that of the intrinsic soundness of that Solution. It is to this only that my responsibility extends. The responsibility of declining to accept a proffered remedy must rest with those to whom the offer is made.
I had intended to keep these Lectures in manuscript, and repeat them wherever an audience might be found desirous of hearing facts stated without respect to aught but the facts. It is in compliance with very many and pressing solicitations that I have, by printing them, withdrawn them from further delivery as Public Lectures. My hope now is that the readers will not be less numerous than the hearers would have been, had I adhered to my original intention.
The Lectures are printed with the changes made
on their second delivery, in
go from me without acknowledging my obligations to the series of small publications issued periodically by Mr. Thomas Scott of Ramsgate, to whose indefatigable self-devotion to the cause of “Free Inquiry and Free Expression,” the present rapid spread of information, and consequent movement of thought on religious matters, especially among the clergy of the Establishment, – (a movement far greater than the public is aware of) – is in no small degree attributable. The tracts entitled, The Defective Morality of the New Testament, by Professor F.W. Newman; The Gospel of the Kingdom, and The Influence of Sacred History on the Intellect and Conscience, – especially deserve mention for the use I have made of them. A few brief passages given as quotations, but without reference, are for the most part taken, with more or less exactness, from The Pilgrim and the Shrine.
