In perusing the following Dissertations the theological student will perceive that the Author, in illustrating the Divine Attributes, neither affects nice metaphysical distinctions, nor makes pretensions to such an elaborate analysis of the perfections of Deity as is generally adopted by professors of theology in a course of lectures on these subjects. Those who wish to gratify their critical curiosity therein, may consult the philological and exegetical disquisitions of Dr. Pye Smith, Dwight's and Stackhouse's Body of Divinity, the various Systems of Theology by Dr. Wardlaw, Dr. Leonard Woods, and Professor Finney, R. Watson's and Dr. Chalmers' Institutes, and other learned authors, who have discussed these subjects with great care and philosophical nicety.
