A Defense of Natural and Revealed Religion; Being an Abridgment of the Sermons Preached at the Lectures Founded by Robert Boyle Part Four

Overview

1737. This is Volume 4 of 4. Robert Boyle instituted this series of lectures with the intention of providing a forum for prominent academics to confute atheism. The lectures were inaugurated in 1692 by Richard Bentley, a renowned scholar who corresponded with Newton during their preparation. These lectures were written to give evidence of the existence of God to philosophers and scientists as well as lay people, and as such provide arguments of varied interest to a modern audience. The collection culminates in an exposition of Newton's natural philosophy designed to explicate the theological position outlined in the earlier lectures. They are thus the first popular presentation of the discoveries otherwise inaccessibly presented in Newton's Principia of 1687. The first twenty-one lectures by both famous and neglected scholars and theologians are gathered in this 4-volume collection including: Richard Bentley; Richard Kidder; John Williams; F. Gastrell; J. Harris; Samuel Bradford; Offspring Blackall; George Stanhope; Samuel Clarke; John Hancock; W. Whiston; John Turner; Lilly Butler; Josiah Woodward; William Derham; Benjamin Ibbot; John Leng; John Clarke; Robert Gurdon; Thomas Burnett; and William Berriman.
