PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 25, 1854.


I have read with some care the “Lectures on Election, by the Rev. Alexander C. Rutherford, of Greenock,” and I consider the work to be an able exposition of the errors of the predestinarian theory, by one who has had every opportunity of understanding that theory, as held by its ablest advocates. The argument is clear and convincing; and, for general circulation, I deem this book one of the best on the subject with which it has been my fortune to meet.

PHILADELPHIA, January 4, 1854.


I have read a work entitled “Lectures on the Doctrine of Election, by Alexander C. Rutherford, Minister of the Gospel, Greenock,” and while I am not prepared to subscribe to all its minor positions, nor to justify all its severities of expression, many of which were prompted, I suppose, by circumstances not apparent to the reader, I unhesitatingly recommend it as an unanswerable refutation of the Calvinistic doctrines of election and reprobation, as placing the truth in a very clear and convincing light, and as eminently worthy to be republished and widely circulated, especially in view of the efforts now made to engage the public confidence for the unscriptural and dangerous tenets which it condemns.

Francis Hodgson, D. D.
