OME time ago, a newspaper account of an accident spoke of the escape of a certain person as "providential." A reader wrote to the paper objecting to this mode of describing a natural occurrence. Another replied in defence of the reporter's phraseology, whereupon there sprang up quite a breezy controversy on the nature of providence, or whether there was such a thing at all.
The following chapters may be regarded as a contribution to this controversy, without, however, taking part in the particular fight occasioned. It is a contribution standing apart from the dispute of the combatants. It stands upon grounds totally different from those on which they argued the case. It recognizes the operation of the fixed laws of nature as evident to universal experience, and demonstrated by the experiments of science. But at the same time it accepts the higher form of truth presented to us in the Hebrew scripturesprophetic and apostolic.
