Summary
"Having been particularly known among my familiar acquaintances, and, reputedly, by the public within my vicinity, as an avowed dissenter from the literality and supernaturalism of the Scriptures, in which there seemed enough of singularity, to induce a curious individual to solicit, from time to time, during several years, a publication of my anti-theological opinions, to which however, circumstances forbade assent; until, at length, I was importuned by letter, at two several times, from a reverened disciple of Universalism, to make the curious disclosure: And hence concluded to comply, and, therefore, set about expending, occasionally, a leisure hour, in noting some few reflections upon the subjects of inquiry. This I was the more willing to undertake, from the clearest conviction, that Theology unconnected with Morality, was a phantom which had seduced or frightened the world into its most terrible and exterminating evils. And that even Christianity, in which Morality, as it seems to have been particularly intended, strikingly predominates over Theology, has been the subject and occasion of the most cruel and murderous dissention. Thus, is the Reader, not quite unceremoniously, introduced to our legitimate, dogmatical and hypothetical progeny, from which, as he cannot fail to observe, a foot, at least, has been amputated, for the convenience of the Printer; and perhaps not less to the satisfaction of the Reader; since, whatever lessens a deformity, proportionally improves it"--Book.
