Not illustrated. 1855 edition. Excerpt: ...long since exhausted, or abandoned, as involving difficulties which, like certain problems in another department of inquiry, admit only of an indeterminate or approximate solution. Dr. Stroud, however, has succeeded, if not in putting an entirely new face on an old subject, yet in giving a new and somewhat more harmonious expression to various parts of it, and especially to some of those parts which his predecessors have experienced the greatest difficulty in handling; such as the apparently conflicting accounts of Peter's denials of his Master, and of the circumstances connected with His resurrection; and the history of His farewell progress through the provinces of Palestine. The "Introductory Treatise," which occupies about a third part of the volume, embraces four principal subjects; namely, I. The Nature and Design of an Evangelical Harmony. II. The Character of the Four Gospels, as furnishing the Materials of Brief Literary Notices. 293 such an Undertaking. III. The Rules and Principles adopted in the present Harmony; and, IV. The general Result of their Application, including a short Description of the Work itself, and a careful Examination of those Parts of it which may he regarded as more especially difficult or doubtful. Of these four sections, the second and fourth are particularly interesting and important. The second, for instance, embraces, with other topics, a collation of the external and internal evidence of the Gospel, with the view of ascertaining the order of their succession, (which the author believes to have been, Luke, Matthew, Mark, John, ) and a computation, founded on evidence furnished by the other books of the New Testament, as well as by the Gospels themselves, of the absolute dates of their first publication. more
