Key to the Science of Theology   By: (1807-1857)

Book cover

First Page:

Frontispiece.

Fly fly these thoughts on the lightning car, With the speed of light to the realms afar! Mount mount the car with the horse of fire; Outstrip the wind, he will never tire, Let the wild bird scream as he lags behind, And the hurricane a champion find. Search the darkest spot where mortals dwell: With a voice of thunder the tidings tell, Proclaim the dawn of a brighter day, When the King of kings shall his sceptre sway. Bid pain, and anguish, and sorrow cease, And open the way for the Prince of Peace . He will conquer death, bid mourning flee, And give to the nations a Jubilee .

PREFACE.

The present is an age of progress, of change, of rapid advance, and of wonderful revolutions.

The very foundations of society social, political, commercial, moral and religious, seem to be shaken as with a mighty earthquake, from centre to circumference. All things tremble; creation groans; the world is in travail, and pains to be delivered.

A new era has dawned upon our planet, and is advancing with accelerated force with giant strides.

The rail roads and the steam boats, with their progressive improvements in speed, safety and convenience, are extending and multiplying the means of travel, of trade, of association, and intercommunication between countries whose inhabitants have been comparatively unknown to, or estranged from, each other.

But, as if even these means were too slow for the God like aspirations, the mighty throes of human thought, and its struggles for light and expansion, man seizes the lightning, tames and subdues it, and makes it the bearer of his thoughts and despatches. While these things are in progress by one portion of mankind, another learns to seize and control a sunbeam, in a manner subservient to the progress of the fine arts: and by which means a man performs in a minute, the work which a short time since would have employed the most active years of a lifetime...
