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.

He had surprising success as a preacher because of the pungent quality of his sermons.

He held this position until 1863. "He was an able executive and disciplinarian, however, and like his contemporary Mark Hopkins at Williams, a great teacher, whose character exercised a deep influence on students and associates. 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. Biblical, Theol., & Eccl. Lit. V:505. "An I should esteem it more than a recompence for the loss of all things, if, at the close of life which I perceive to be hastening upon me, I might see more of my brethren of New Hampshire, and the College of our beloved State, planted, if

A graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, he spent two years in the Middle and Southern states as agent for the Amer. Bd. of Comm. for Foreign Missions. 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.

Moses Stuart (1780-1852) American Hebraist & Biblical scholar, professor of sacred literature in Andover Theological Seminary 1810-1848. "To America he brought the knowledge of what was being done for Biblical scholarship in Germany, and thus founded in America the scientific study of Biblical archeology and linguistics. For his services in this department he has been called `the father of American Biblical literature.'"--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl., XI:116. We offer Stuart's sermon/discourse on the conversion of the Jews, based on the text Romans xi:25-31. He spends a few pages on the question of whether they will return to Israel as a nation, and finds the Biblical evidence inconclusive. He concludes that the conversion of the Jews "will take place when the fullness of the Gentiles shall be gathered in." There is a Greek word study on the word "fullness." Having concluded that the Jews will be converted he maintains that they can't be converted without missionaries and that Gentiles make better missionaries than converted Jews because the later are despised by the Jews for betraying their religion. Schauffler became a missionary to the Jews in Constantinople.
