THIS volume was written more than six years ago. The disturbed state of the country and the high price of labor and materials for printing have hitherto hindered its publication. I regret both the delay and the cause of it.
'As the most important doctrines revealed in the New Testament have already passed under review, the Commentary on the shorter Epistles may be more brief. It my intention to compress the remainder into one volume, which is now partly written, and which I hope may be published during the next year.
If it shall please God to prolong my life and to grant me ability to complete this work, I shall rejoice in the belief that I have not been altogether “barren nor unfruitful” in promulgating among men “the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” and of his blessed gospel.
For the approbation bestowed on the preceding volumes, I am truly grateful; and I cherish a hope that the present volume may receive a like generous and friendly greeting.
LUCIUS R. PAIGE.
