"In 1834 he began his career as a theologian by measuring himself against no less an antagonist than Andrews Norton; his Remarks on Mr. Norton's "Statement of Reasons" was, however, a belated rejoinder, for Norton;s Statement of Reasons for not Believing the Doctrine of Trinitarians had appeared in 1819, when Coit was still a student in college...

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.

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. The American Education Society was founded to help train ministers for America's new settlements. The reviewer criticizes the Society for requiring recipients of their aid to provide detailed accounting of their need, of the Society loaning the money instead of just granting it, that applications for aid must be made first through the Branch societies, questions over whether voting members of the Society are eligible for office in the Society thereby giving them power to perpetuate their own office. Stuart then lists fears that the reviewer has: fear of immense power that the Society will eventually gain, both financially and ecclesiastically with the Presbyterian Church. Finally, Stuart takes to task the reviewer for bringing up these objections in public: "I frankly confess, that I have a deep feeling on this subject... Shall the tocsin of alarm be sounded through the United States; and all the enemies of religion be set in motion, and have their mouths filled with matter of accusation against the American Education Society?... If the Review had serious objections, why not make them
