PREFACE.
The earnest and increasing desire which has for
some time past manifested itself throughout this coun-
try, to obtain information concerning the progress of
Christianity, and its influence upon the happiness of
mankind, indicates a growing interest of feeling in fa-
vour of the sublime objects of the true religion.

In proportion to the extent of such a disposition, will
be its tendency to counteract the taste which has so
long and so generally prevailed, to gratify curiosity
about things of a much less important and less inter-
esting nature.

Were that the only benefit produced by publications of this sort, no time nor labour bestowed upon them should be deemed an employment unbecoming a Christian.

To such as love the prosperity of Zion above their chief joy, the intelligence of its boundaries being enlarged, the number of its citizens augmented, its waste places built up, its work revived, its cause flourishing, must be a source of joy, thanksgiving, and praise, and tend to enkindle zeal, and give activity to exertions in promoting the interests of that kingdom which endureth for ever.
