19TH-AM-MA-BOSTON 
BEECHER, EDWARD. The Conflict of Ages: or, The Great Debate on the Moral Relations of God and Man. Fifth Edition. Boston: Phillips, Sampson & Co., 1854, 12mo. Bound publisher's brown cloth, rubbed a bit, fraying at spine ends and corners, small library tag at bottom of spine, engraved library bookplate, old library pocket and card, light foxing, light damp stain on bottom page edges. xii, 552pp. Edward Beecher (1803-1895) Congregational clergyman, college president, third child of Lyman Beecher and brother of Catharine Beecher, Henry Ward Beecher and Harriet Beecher Stowe; was president of Illinois college for 14 years. We offer his work on original sin. "The Calvinist dogma that tormented Edward most of all was that of innate depravity... It led learned, sensitive Edward Beecher into a theory of the origins of sinfulness that bordered on fantasy. Aided by what he believed was a divine illumination, he became convinced that souls came into this world not corrupt as a result of Adam's fall but as free spirits who fell from innocence in a previous existence. Since they had free choice in that existence, God could not be blamed for their fall... Fearing his theory would be labeled mystical and arrogant, if not heretical, he waited twenty-five years before publishing it in his magnum opus, The Conflict of Ages."--Milton Rugoff: The Beechers, p89.

"Section XI. The Nature of Divine Illumination... To see the Holy Beauty of God's moral Character, to see the Beauty of Holiness, to have Holiness appear beautiful and seem lovely to the Soul, is of the same Nature as to love Holiness; but to love Holiness, is Holiness it self."--pp.201, 205-206.

"In the controversy between the 'Old Divinity" and the "New" he became a strong defender of the former as against the opinions of Drs. Bellamy, Hopkins, West, and Edwards,,, Captivated by the preaching of Moses Stuart who supplied the church during the pastor's illness, the Society voted in 1805 that 'Dr. Dana retire from his pastoral labors.'

DANA, DANIEL. Have the Churches the presence of Christ? A Sermon, Addressed to the Presbytery of Londonderry. At their Semi-annual Meeting, Bedford, (N.H.,) April 30, 1851. By Daniel Dana, D.D.

Pagination: (1) title, (1) blank, [3]-32pp. OCLC locates 11 libraries with this title. Daniel Dana (1771-1859) Presbyterian minister, pastor in Newburyport, Ma., for 26 years, then president of Dartmouth College for a short time. He became pastor in Londonderry, but in 1826 became pastor of the Second Presbyterian church at Newburyport, resigning in 1845 in the seventy-fifth year of his age. "Dr Dana was regarded as `one of the most able, devoted, and useful ministers of the period in which he lived."--McClintock & Strong: Cycl. Bibl., Theol., & Eccl. Lit. II:656. We offer his sermon on Matthew 9:15 "Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bride-chamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then they shall fast." Dana reframes the text "Do our churches and the churches generally, enjoy the spiritual presence of the Savior?" He laments the loss of the presence of the Spirit in the churches and delineates practices that need to be reformed, including loss of reverence for the Sabbath, sitting while in prayer (instead of standing), the world impressing its character upon the church instead of the reverse. He deplores the modern idea of sin--that it consists of action, that "no one is subject to divine displeasure and condemnation, till they are incurred by actual, voluntary transgression of known law."--p.14. "The sinner is viewed, not as passing through a painful process of conviction... but as coolly comparing the happiness to be found in God, with that to be found in the world, and as making his choice accordingly.

Quotes from text: "As a member of the Presbyteries of Londonderry, and of Newburyport, I have been called to take part in the examination of some scores of candidates educated in the Seminary. Many of these have appeared well; but the greater part have failed in some essential points; particularly that of native depravity."--p.7. "The present Professor of Christian Theology has, agreeably to the Constitution, solemnly declared and subscribed his assent to the doctrines of the Westminster Assembly's Shorter Catechism, and solemnly engaged to teach them, to the exclusion of all apposing doctrines and errors. That Catechism recognizes the doctrine of original sin. Is it consistent in the Professor to hold and teach that our nature is not sinful, and that original sin i not sin?"--p8. "His favorite maxim, that all sin consists in action, is equally opposed to sound philosophy and Scripture"--p.23. "His views of human ability are extravagant and extreme. They obviously tend to foster in men a spirit of pride, of self-sufficiency, of independence on God, and emphatically, of procrastination."--p.24.

For many years he conducted courses in theology and ethics."--Dict. Amer. Biog. XI:409. "Dr. Lord upheld the institution of slavery, and thus incurred the censure of most northern people; but while he advocated his views in letters and sermons, Dartmouth was the only college in the United States for many years where colored students were admitted, and while under his care they were treated with uniform kindness and courtesy. He inclined to the old-school system of theology, and to a literal interpretation of the prophesies."--Appletons' Cyclopadia of American Biography, IV:25. "As a theologian he was, like Edwards, Hopkins, and Bellamy, of the school advocating a strictly liberal interpretation of prophecy, but left us few remains in print."--McClintock & Strong: Cyl.

He accepted pastorate of the Second Presbyterian Church, Albany, N.Y. in 1828. "Intensely evangelistic, plain-spoke, sometimes denunciatory, always uncompromising, his preaching was not acceptable to a fashionable congregation which included Martin Van Buren, Benjamin F. Butler, and William L. Marcy, and he was soon summarily dismissed. Some of his sympathizers then organized the Fourth Presbyterian Church of which he was installed pastor on April 21, 1829... In the eight years that followed the new church grew rapidly and its pastor became widely known as a promoter of revivals and a lecturer on behalf of missions, temperance, and the anti-slavery movement... Throughout the Civil War he was a fiery supporter of the Union, and when in 1865 the American Missionary Association was free to extend its work among the colored people of the South he was elected president."--Harris Elwood Starr in Dictionary of Amer. Biography, X:427-28.
