Excerpt from Dialogues on Divine Providence
The following pages were originally intended to embody the substance of an unwritten ser mon. But the form has been entirely changed; and the matter has received many additions and modifications. The result is a very small book indeed; but, small and insignificant though it be, it is commended, with all its im perfections, to the Providence which is its subject.
Its main positions will probably appear tru isms at first; and yet they may surprise some readers by their consequences. But this, it is submitted, is no argument against their cor rectness. We underrate the scale of most things, till we have to do with them in detail. We only appreciate the extent of a Country by travelling over it; and of a Truth by seeing what it contains. A simple colossal form strikes us at first as nothing extraordinary, till we come near it, and walk round it, and take in its measure by the eye and the mind; and then it starts into sublimity.vi preface.
