the past eight winters the London Christian Young Men's Association has published, in an annual volume, the Lectures delivered before the Association in Exeter Hall. These Lectures have been delivered by some of the most eminent and eloquent men in Great Britain. The series, as a whole, would, perhaps, be hardly worthy of republication, since many of the Lectures were special and local in their character and objects. And several of them possess no great merit above the hundreds of lectures given to the public by the press in our own country. These would increase the bulk, but diminish the value of the work. Others, however, are not only of rare ability, but of general interest-of as much interest, indeed, on this as on the other side of the Atlantic. These we have segregated from the mass, and prepared for the present volume.
