THE

RELIGION OF GEOLOGY

AND ITS

CONNECTED SCIENCES.

BY

EDWARD HITCHCOCK, DD., LL.D.

LATE PRESIDENT OF AMHERST COLLEGE, AND PROFESSOR OF

NATUKAL THEOLOGY AND GEOLOGY.

WITH AN ADDITIONAL LECTURE, GIVING A SUMMARY OF THE AUTHOR'S

PRESENT VIEWS OF THE WHOLE SUBJECT.

"Science has a foundation, and so has religion; let them unite their foundations, and the basis will be
broader, and they will be two conipartments of one great fabric reared to the glory of God. Let the one be the
outer, and the other the inner, court. In the one, let all look, and admire, and adore; and in the other, let those
who have faith kneel, and pray, and praise. Let the one be the sanctuary where human learning may present its
richest incense as an offering to God; and the other the holiest of all, separated from it by a veil now rent in
twain, and in which, on a blood-sprinkled mercy-seat, we pour out the love of a reconciled heart and hear the
oracles of the living God.”---M-Cosir.
