ADVERTISEMENT.

The Reader will perceive by the Title head-lines of the “ SKETCH OF THE CHURCH," and the PREFACE to Volume I. that the History was originally intended to have been carried on much farther. The causes that have prevented this are noticed in that Preface; and he will consider the Title of the Sketch to stand thus :

SKETCH

OF THE HISTORY OF

THE CHURCH;

COMPREHENDING

A VIEW OF THE PATRIARCHAL AND LEVITICAL CHURCHES-THE

ORIGIN AND EXTENSION OF IDOLATRY-AND THE ECONOMY

OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND HIERARCHY.
