ITS OWN ADVOCATE.
GEORGE GRIFFIN, LL.D.
D. APPLETON & COMPANY, 200 BROADWAY.
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1850, by

It may be justly inferred from the title-page to this volume, that it treats mainly of the internal evidences of Christianity. For should the Gospel assume the form of a living, speaking man, and, like Paul before Agrippa, plead, with outstretched hand, its cause before the countless myriads of human kind, it would doubtless place its chief reliance on its own Sacred Pages. Nevertheless, the author will not deem himself precluded by the titlepage from sometimes overstepping the line generally regarded as the boundary between the intrinsic and external departments of the evangelical proofs. Those departments are not hostile or foreign territories, in their mutual relations; and an essay on the one may occasionally invoke aid from the other, without essentially violating the laws of its unity.
