Nature of the Atonement.
DELIVERED AUG. 17, 1823, IN THE CHAPEL
BY JAMES MURDOCK, D. D.
PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF THE INSTITUTION.
FLAGG AND GOULD, PRINTERS.
This discourse was delivered to an audience composed chiefly of theological students, and was designed to aid them in forming their opinions on the important subject discussed. For their benefit, as well as at their desire and expense, it is now made public. In preparing it for the press, the writer at first intended to have assigned to the appendix a greater portion of the discussion, and to have retained at least all the practical reflections embodied in the original sermon. But he soon found that this course would swell the publication too much, and would cost him more time than could be spared from his other duties. He thereforė changed his plan, omitted much that was merely practical and enlarged the discussion in the body of the sermon, and subjoined only a few articles by way of appendix. As it has thus assumed very much the character of a theological tract, some references and quotations have been annexed, which can be of no use to the public at large; but which, it is hoped, will be of value to those for whom they were intended.
