A LIST OF THE PRINCIPAL BOOKS ON THE SUBJECT OF PROPHECY.
 God has given, through the deep and prolonged researches of his servants, much insight in the prophetic writings. The most valuable truth has been attained by increased investigation in the track of the older writers, with the farther light that history has afforded. Even the Jewish Rabbis, as well as the early writers of the Christian church, assisted Mede, the father of modern interpretation. More, Cressener, Sir Isaac Newton, Bishop Newton, Woodhouse, &c. all followed, asking for the old ways, and walking in them. Jer. vi. 16. Some modern works have too much, however, disregarded what previous writers have said, and others have set them wholly aside, as groundless interpretations.
But even by the most defective works, men's minds have been exercised the more to find out the truth, and a hint in a very erroneous general interpretation, has sometimes led to a valuable discovery; so that no candid, diligent student, need be discouraged by failures in times past.
The author has given a much fuller list of writers on prophecy than he intended; but it may have its advantages. Any knowledge of the writings of such varied authors is calculated to lead us to CAUTION AND MODESTY, in the explanation of unfulfilled prophecy. The great lessons taught by so many varied interpretations, have already been noticed. Would there were more of a holy awe on all our minds, of intruding on the glories of him, who takes it as his peculiar character, to declare things to come, (Isaiah xli. 22,) and to shew the things that are coming, and shall come. Isaiah xliv. 7. We cannot and should not go a step farther than the scripture leads us, and in the interpretations of that scripture, it is very needful to keep everything within that scriptural limit which the comparing spiritual things with spiritual marks out.
The different interpretations of the servants of Christ are calculated  also to guard against a PRECIPITATE JUDGMENT, and a hasty public expression of such a judgment. The first impression of fresh views are as if a new light had been almost supernaturally given to us; but a little time for waiting may greatly modify these views.
No one can look at the names of these authors in the follow
