Outlines of Moral Science. By Archibald Alexander, D.D., late Professor at Princeton.

[This treatise, although published after the death of its lamented author, had been fully prepared by him while living, except in a few unimportant details, in the final revision of which he was arrested by his last sickness. It was, however, so far completed by him, that he instructed his sons to give it to the world, and empowered them to make all necessary corrections,-a liberty which, they state, they scarcely found occasion to use.]

A History of the Israelitish Nation; from their Origin to their Dispersion at the Destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans. By Archibald Alexander, D.D. 8vo, pp. 640.

[The materials of this work had been partly used in previous publications by the author; but they are here thrown into a continuous series, and in this form they constitute a much more valuable contribution to the means of Biblical instruction. The Fifth and Sixth Parts contain all that is important to the Biblical student in Prideaux's "Connection of Sacred and Profane History."]

The Present Jews not the Lawful Heirs of the Abrahamic Covenant. Letters to a Millenarian. By the Rev. A. Williamson.

[The author's investigations are designed to answer the two following questions:-1. Who are at present the lawful heirs of the Abrahamic Will, i. e, the covenant promises of God to Abraham and his seed? 2. What legacies are still due to these heirs? His general conclusion is, “That the present people scattered over the world, calling themselves Jews, have, according to their own law, broken their covenant with God, forfeited their claims to being, in a scriptural sense, the seed of Abraham, and heirs to the promises made to him, and are at present no more to be considered the covenant people of God, because descended from Abraham, than the Ishmaelites or Edomites; and that there appears, therefore, no promise in the Old or New Testaments that they will ever return as a nation, either as the Church or to the Church, or any other way, except as individuals, in common with the Gentiles."]

The Life, Character, and Acts of John the Baptist, and the Relation of his
Ministry to the Christian Dispensation. By Rev. W. C. Duncan,
A.M., Professor of the Greek and Latin Languages and Literature in
Louisiana University.

[The basis of this work is a German monograph, by L. Von Rohden, of Lubec, the whole of which has been carefully translated by Prof. Duncan, who has added matter of his own, amounting to one-third, or more, of the original work.]

Ancient Christianity Exemplified, in the Private, Domestic, Social, and Civil
Life of the Primitive Christians, and in the Original Institution, Offices,
Ordinances, and Rites of the Church. By Lyman Coleman, Philadel
8vo, pp. 645.

["Our stand-point," the author says, "is that of a decided dissenter from the dogmas and doctrines of Episcopacy and Prelacy, respecting the govern

ment, worship, discipline, and usages of the apostolical and primitive churches. It is essentially that of Planck, of Augusti, of Neander, of Böhmer, and generally of the German Archæologists, from whose works this manual has been chiefly compiled." The order in which the numerous topics necessarily embraced in such a work are treated, is the following. What relates to the religious, social and civil life of the primitive Christians, is given in the first five chapters. The general condition of the church is described in the sixth. Chapter VII. is upon the names and classes of Christians. Chapters VIII. -XII., of the clergy, the different orders, election, ordination, &c. Chapter XIII. treats of churches and sacred places, with "plans" from Rheinwald. This part contains incidental notices of early Christian art. From Chapter XIV. to XVIII. the various parts of religious worship are considered, the prayers, psalmody, use of the Scriptures, and homilies, including sections on the liturgies and ancient creeds; several of the latter are given in full. The Rites of the Church, including discipline, are given in Ch. XIX.-XXII.; Chapter XXIII., Councils; XXIV., Marriage; XXV., Funeral Ceremonies; XXVI, the Festivals of the Church. The work is concluded by chapters on the Armenians, by Rev. H. G. O. Dwight, missionary at Constantinople; on the Nestorian church, by Rev. J. Perkins, of Orümiah; and on the Sacred Seasons of the Puritans, Fasts and Thanksgivings, by Rev. Joseph B. Felt, the distinguished antiquary, of Boston. The Index of Authorities in fifteen closely printed pages, of Councils in alphabetical order, a full chronological Index from Rheinwald, somewhat altered, and a copious General Index, conclude the volume. And, to go from the end to the beginning, an Introduction of fifteen pages describes the chief works, German and English, relating to the subject.]

Bishop Butler's Analogy of Religion. Edited by Dr Emory. Fep. 8vo. [The particular value of the present edition of the Analogy, is found in the Analysis and Index, both of which aid very materially the study and use of the work. The former was left incomplete by the lamented Dr Emory, but has been carried out in accordance with Dr E.'s plan, as indicated by an outline found among his papers. The latter is based on Dr Bentham's index, prepared in the lifetime of Bishop Butler, and lately brought to light. The Life contains such new facts as have been discovered by the researches of the Rev. Thomas Bartlett, in addition to the brief record which is familiar. Besides a few notes by the editor, a few are introduced from Dr Chalmers's Lectures, and a few from Professor Fitzgerald's edition of the Analogy.]

Life of Roger Williams. By Romeo Elton, D.D.

[Said to contain a large amount of curious information as to the times of the old Puritan.]

Mysteries or Glympses of the Supernatural. By Charles Wyllys Elliot. 12mo, pp. 273.

[The author has here collected abundant illustrations of the superstitious credulity of which clairvoyance and "spirit rapping" are the latest attractions. The credence which this last imposition has apparently met with in all parts of the United States is humiliating. One of the Judges of New York holds regular communication with Dr Franklin! and the editor of the Church Retier states that a certain reverend doctor of his acquaintance "has faith in the mutterings of clairvoyants, even if they do lie terribly," as we believe they always do when fairly tested.]



Polyglott Bible. By R. Stier, and K. G. W. Theile.

[This splendid Polyglott has been in course of publication since 1847. Three volumes 8vo are completed, the first containing the Pentateuch, the second the books of Scripture from Joshua to 2d Kings inclusive, and the third the New Testament Scriptures. Other parts of the work have appeared in smaller divisions, but it seems uncertain as yet whether it will be possible for the Editors to comprise what remains of Holy Writ in one volume, or whether two additional volumes will be needed to complete the work on the scale in which it has been begun. In the Old Testament, the two pages of the volumes when opened, present at one glance to the reader four columns; the first gives the Septuagint version, the second the Hebrew text, the third Luther's German translation, and the fourth the Vulgate. Underneath the two pages are the various readings of the Septuagint, and the Hebrew, and the Vulgate, together with the different renderings in the various translations of De Wette, Van Ess, the Berlebenburg Bible, &c. The New Testament volume has first the Vulgate, the Greek text, and the Geneva version, and then the fourth column is occupied with the various renderings of the different translations. Underneath are the various readings of the Vulgate, and of the Greek text, according to the critical editions of Griesbach, Knapp, Scholz, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Hahn, and Theile. It is to be regretted that at the time this part of the work appeared, the second edition of Tischendorf's Greek Testament was not available for the use of the editors. The work is an admirable specimen of printing, in clear bold type. It is published at Hielefeld.]

Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon. By Fürst. Part II.

[Part I., with an Introduction containing a short history of Hebrew lexicography, has been received with great favour.]

Thesaurus Philologicus. By Gesenius.

Concluding No.

[As is well known, Professor Rödiger had the charge of completing this work. The concluding Number is intended not merely to supply what was wanting at the death of Gesenius, but to make such additions and corrections to the preceding Numbers as the progress of biblical philology may have rendered necessary.]

Biblico-Talmudical Medicine; or, Pragmatic Exhibition of the Healing
Art among the Ancient Israelites, from Abraham to the Conclusion of
the Babylonish Talmud. Part II., 8vo, pp. 64; Part III., pp. 68. By
R. Wunderbar.

[What Fassel has done for the legal science of the Talmud, Hirschfield for the Talmudic mode of expounding the Bible, and Fürst for the Talmudic schools in Asia, Wunderbar here attempts for its medical science. The in troduction treats of, 1. The history of Israelitish medicine up to A. D. 500. 2. The weights, measures, instruments, and apparatus employed. literature of Israelitish medicine. Then follows the body of the treatise, dis

3. The

cussing separately Materia Medica, Pharmacology, Macrobiotics, Dietetics, Pathology, and Chirurgy.]

Disputatio de Antiquissimo Librorum Sacrorum Novi fœderis catalogo, qui vulgo fragmentum Muratorii appellatur. By G. Von Gilse. 4to, PP. 31.

[This is a "gratulations schrift,” by a Professor in the Baptist Seminary at Amsterdam, on the 25th anniversary of the induction of an older colleague. The most recent investigations of importance on this subject were by Credner in his History of the Canon (1847), and by Wiesler in the Studien und Kritiken of the same year, the former of whom chiefly regarded the explanation, the latter the restoration of the text. Their differing so much as they did in the details of their views, led to a renewed examination on the part of the author of this treatise. It contains a brief view of the literature of the Fragment, an attempt at the correction of the text, and remarks upon its probable age (which, like his predecessors, he fixes at about A. D. 170), its original language (Greek), its author, and the books of the New Testament included or omitted.]

The Apocrypha of the Old Testament: A Testimony against the same on the ground of the Word of God. By P. F. Keerl. 8vo, pp. 192. The Position and Value of the Apocrypha, in respect to Contents and Form, and Historically. By E. Kluge. 8vo, pp. 79.

[Two prizes were recently offered in the Duchy of Baden for the best treatises against the reception of the Apocrypha in the editions of the Bible. The above are the two successful essays. That of Keerl took the first prize, and is a scientific investigation of the claims of the Apocrypha. That of Kluge is in dialogue form, and discuses the subject popularly.]

The Song of Solomon Expounded (Das hohe Lied Salmonis erklärt), by Hengstenberg. 8vo. Berlin.

The "Commentary on Isaiah," by Dreschsler, will now, since his death, be completed by Delitzsch.

[Two parts only were issued during Dreschsler's life-the first in 1845, on chap. i. to xii., the second in 1849, completing chap. xxvii. Delitzsch expects, from papers put into his hands, to be able to continue the exposition through chap. xxxix. On the remaining portion of the book he will prepare an independent commentary of his own.]

Jeremiah of Anathoth-his Prophecies and Lamentations expounded according to the Masoretic Text. By W. Neumann. 2 vols. 8vo. Leipsic.

[Neumann is one of the contributors to Rudelbach and Guericke's Zeitschrift, and belongs to the school of theology which it represents.]

Exposition of Micah. By C. P. Caspari. 8vo, pp. 458.

[The author is Professor in the Norwegian Seminary of Christiana. The work is divided into three chapters. The first treats of the form and signification of the name of the prophet; of his birthplace (Moreshett-Gath), and native land (kingdom of Judah); of the period of his ministry, date of his book, and the truth and genuineness of its title (both of which it defends). The second chapter, which comprises the body of the work, contains the exposition of the prophecy, in a full, continuous paraphrase, with foot-notes discussing all questions of criticism and interpretation, followed by a dissertation on the spirit of the prophet, and bis peculiarities of style and language. The third chapter is devoted to the consideration of the relation between the book of Micah and the previous books of the Old Testament, the contemporary book of Isaiah (Mic. iv. 1-3, Isa. ii. 2-4, is original with Micah, not Isaiah), the succeeding books of the Old Testament and those of the New. The prolixity of the book, and its love for minutiæ, make it often dull. The paraphrase is for the most part clear and good; but the critical matter has been thrown into an unfortunate form for VOL. II.-NO. I.
