THE

DOCTRINE OF INSPIRATION.

THE

DOCTRINE OF INSPIRATION:

BEING

AN INQUIRY

CONCERNING THE

INFALLIBILITY, INSPIRATION, AND

AUTHORITY OF HOLY WRIT,

BY THE REV. JOHN MACNAUGHT, M.A., OXON.,

INCUMBENT OF ST. CHRYSOSTOM'S CHURCH, EVERTON, LIVERPOOL.

"Have you seen your uncle's Letters on Inspiration,' which I believe are to be published ?"
They have since appeared as "The Confessions of an Inquiring Spirit.'- " They are well fitted to
"break ground in the approaches to that momentous question wbich involves in it so great a shock
"to existing notions; the greatest probably, that has ever been given since the discovery of the false-
"hood of the doctrine of the Pope's infallibility. Yet it must come, and will end, in spite of the fears
"and clamours of the weak and bigoted, in the higher exalting and more sure establishing of Chris-
" tian truth."-Letter (Jan. 24, 1835) from the great and good. Dr. Arnold of Rugby to Mr. Justice
Coleridge.--Stanley's Life of Arnold, p. 317, edit. 6th.
