THE

ECLECTIC REVIEW,

For JANUARY, 1812.

Art. I. Letters to a Friend on the Evidences, Doctrines, and Dulies of

the Christian Religion. By Olinthus Gregory, LL.D. Of the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich. Two volumes - 8vo. pp. 310. 301.

Price 14s. extra boards. Baldwin. 1812. AS this is a work of no ordinary merit, and written upon a

subject which all must confess to be of the last importance, we shall endeavour, after being indulged with a few preliminary remarks, to give a pretty copious analysis of its contents; not doubting the greater part of our readers will be solicitous to avail themselves of the riche entertainment and instruction, which its perusal will unquestionably afford. The first volume is employed in the discussion of a subject which has engaged the powers of the wisest of meu through a series of ages; and minds of every size and of every diversity of acquisition, having contributed their quota towards its illucidation, the accumulation of materials is such, that it has become more necessary, perhaps more difficult, to arrange than to invent. In the conduct of so extensive an argument, the talents of the writer will chiefly appear, in giving the due degree of relief and prominence to ihe different branches of the

subject,-in determining what should be placed in a strong · and brilliant light, what should be more slightly sketched,

and disposing the whole in such a manner as shall give it the most impressive effect. If there is little room for the display of invention, other powers are requisite, not less rare or less useful; a nice and discriminating judgement, a true logical taste, and a talent of extensive combination. An ordinary thinker feels himself lost in so wide a field; is incapable of classifying the objects it presents ; and wastes his attention on such as are trite and common, instead of directing it to those which are great and interesting. If there are subjects which it is difficult to discuss for want of data to proceed upon, and, while they allure
