Summary
This volume is an elaboration and expansion of lectures delivered before the theological students at King's College, University of London. The theory put forth in the following pages is, briefly, this: All types of sacrifices were originally based on one or other of three fundamental ideas and purposes, whatever subsidiary elements may have entered in; those purposes were to offer gifts, to effect communion, and to liberate and give life. Eternal truths were enshrined in the crude forms of sacrifice offered for these purposes, and ultimately these truths received their fulness of expression and realization in the person of Jesus Christ. - Prefatory note
