ABt. I.-— The Last Days: a Discourse on the Evil Character of these

our Times, proving them to be the Perilous Timesof the Last Days.By the Rev. EDWARD IRVING, A. M. Minister of the National Scotch Church, Regent Square. London, 1828. 8vo. 12s. bds.

We solemnly assure Mr. Irving that we have read his Discourse, however he may be pleased to doubt the truth of our assertion; and though he has expressed himself with peculiar bitterness against the periodical writers of the religious world, as "ill discharging the office of chroniclers to the church” (p. 474); as replete with “uncharitable severities, and the unprofitable memoirs of unprofitable persons, and the condemnation of books neither reviewed nor read by those who judge them” (p. 475); as men who “modestly, timidly, and humbly hide their names, and under the appearance of lambs conceal the rage of the lion, and the cruelty of the tiger” (p. 434); as “ triflers in Reviews and Magazines,” of whom it is said that “they are as ripe at twenty as they are at forty," and that " at sixty they are generally dead" (p. 462); as mere "babes,” the whole of whose religious ideas might be set down" within the compass of a page" (p. 266); yea, though our author have emptied the vials of his contempt upon tribe, as "mighty men without a name, flooding the world with an unfathered progeny” (p. 367); as “strange children, whose tongues are a sharp sword, and whose right hand is a right hand of violence, and over whose wrath, and envy, and evil-speaking he could even weep(p. 265): we freely forgive him this wrong, and confess ourselves ready to sit in judgment upon his elaborate Discourse, unbiassed by anything like wounded pride, or vindictive remembrance of contumelious aspersions.

The present work contains seventeen sermons, from 2 Tim. iii. 1–6, in which it is attempted to prove that the present are the “perilous times of the last days,” for that they are characterized by all the signs which are enumerated by St. Paul in the text.

Those of our readers who are acquainted with the characteristic powers of the Minister of the National Scotch Church, will have perceived that the subject of his present Discourse is but little suited to his talents. He seems to riot in the maddest orgies of declamation. His style, redeemed, indeed, by occasional beauties, (an oasis in the desert,) is flowery, bombastic, and unchaste. His arguments, though sometimes ingenious, are often inconclusive. His oration wears the aspect of a violent Philippic, in which he has summoned his imagination to accumulate upon the devoted head of his victim every possible crimination, without regard to truth, hoping to gain a verdict by the multiplicity rather than the establishment of his charges, and appealing to the passions rather than to the reason of his hearers. If we give him credit for zeal, we must yet deny him the better palm of wisdom; and though we take pleasure in confessing that our author has sometimes satisfied us with maxims of religion, morals, and politics, orthodox, scriptural, and sound; we are bound to enter our decided and solemn protest against the many alarming and unwarrantable (not to say blasphemous) crudities which disgrace his pages. He may advocate the frightful dogmata, which are peculiar to Calvin, (many pious and learned theologians have embraced his uncomfortable creed ;)- he may shoot the poisoned arrows of his malice against the conductors of the periodical press, (for “the galled jade will wince");—he may utter unmeaning panegyrics upon the barren land of his nativity, (" dulces reminiscitur Argos");- he may dedicate his labours to “ William Dinwiddie," or to “ William Hamilton,” with fulsome acknowledgments of gratitude, and proud confessions of humility; – he may boast of the honour” of having preached the Gospel (Dedication, p. 9) "to every rank and degree of men, from the lowest, basest of our press hirelings, up to the right hand of royalty itself;"-these expressions of his faith,—this ebullition of his wrath,--this stirring of patriotic affection, this payment of his debts of gratitude,-this advertisement of his popularity, uncourted, it should seem, and short-lived --we pass by without a comment. Not so with those mischievous errors, which would rob us of our best hopes, and degrade the holy character of our pure and blessed Redeemer! We are indignant, and we own it too, that this Caledonian enthusiast should be imported hither, not only to decry the manners and the principles, the discipline and the doctrine, the science and the pursuits of“ all sorts and conditions of men,” but also to impugn the humanity of the sinless offspring of the virgin mother of Christ! The vile notion that our immaculate Saviour “took upon him our fallen, sinful nature,” is no tenet surely of the Kirk of Scotland, -is expressly renounced by the Church of England, -is in flat contradiction to the testimony of Holy Writ,--and is utterly subversive of the vicarious mediation of that
