PREFACE

THE following Lectures appear in book form, through a request of the Lutheran Publication Society, made at its meeting in Omaha, Neb., June, 1887.
A sufficient number of subscriptions having been received in advance to justify the expense of publication, a limited edition of the work is published.
The Lectures are printed in their full and complete form as originally delivered, except that in several of the Lectures there is an omission of a few brief statements which do not affect the
discussion.
An extended specific index to the entire work may be found at the end of the volume.
