Robert Dabney (1820-98), who was for forty years Professor in Union Seminary, Virginia, U.S.A., was in the opinion of Dr. Archibald Alexander, ‘the best teacher of theology in the United States, if not in the world’.

 Though it is called ‘Secular’, because a large proportion of the articles are of a secular character; yet doubtless it will be all the more appreciated because of the greater variety given in the addition of a goodly number of religious articles and poems.
