Excerpt from Short Talks to Young Christians on the Evidences
With the attention of young, and to a great extent un informed, minds thus turned upon the utterances of an infidel, at a time when they were undergoing their first inner struggles with doubt, it seemed wise that some words of this sort should be spoken.
There were several difficulties in the way of any plan to reach the wants of these converts. The audience, while composed mostly of young people from sixteen to twentyyears of age, had in it a number of children and another number of persons of mature years, who, young in Chris tian experience, were invariably present. Many were unaccustomed to study and some were well along in a college course.
To meet the wants of all, the colloquial style which prevails was chosen. I have, purposely, avoided learned terms and abstract arguments. My only desire was to find a way to interest, and so inform, such a variously composed throng. The hepe has been that those Who came would get some of the outline facts of the Evidence: and more than all that they would be incited to pursue in private study the thoughts thus aroused.
