Excerpt from Theological Essays
Some months ago I seemed to see a way in which I might acquit myself of the obligation. A series of Discourses which had occurred to me as suitable for my own Congregation, in the interval between Quin quagesima Sunday, and Trinity Sunday, might, I thought, embrace all the topics which I should wish to bring under thenotice of Unitarians. It was suggested by a friend that I should throw each discourse into the form of an Essay, after it had been preached. By following this advice, I have been able to avail myself of criticisms which were made on the sermons when they were delivered; to introduce many topics, which would have been unsuitable for the pulpit and at the same time, I hope, to retain something of the feeling of one who is addressing actual men with whom he sym pathises, not Opponents with whom he is arguing. I did not allude to Unitarians while I was preaching. I have said scarcely anything to them in writing, which I do not think just as applicable to the great body of my contemporaries, of all classes and opinions. Nearly every Essay has been re-written, and greatly enlarged in its passage out of the sermon state. Two were originally composed in their present form.
