is presentThe object of these Lectures to
the teaching Swedenborg concerning theof
Sacred Scriptures, in form likely to reacha
might otherwise remain in ignorancethosewho
ofit ; and for this purpose I have used what-
ever in the collateral writings of the New
Church I have found available for argument
or illustration. Whatever has thus been as-
thesimilate)^ into scheme and purpose of this
presentation,I of course makemyself responsi-
ifble for; but credit is to be given, I wish to
say it very likely belongs to others. It is
only fair to add, that the Lectures, delivered
from time to time, which have appeared in the
Chicago Times, called forth expressions of
interest from various sources, which suggested
the probable usefulness ofprinting them in this
present form.
