About the Authors
  • This two-volume set by the philosopher and theologian William Paley, published in 1794, was considered so important that it was required reading for Cambridge students (including Charles Darwin) well into the nineteenth century. This classic work of apologetics discusses the primary and secondary historical evidence for Christianity, the miracles of Jesus Christ, the candour of the New Testament writers, the differences between Islam and Christianity, and popular objections to the truth of Christianity. Paley's intellectual defence of Christianity was one of the most popular of his day, and as such was central to the debates on evolution, science and religion of the Victorian period. His work anticipates parts of the contemporary theory of intelligent design, and is of interest to historians of theology, philosophy and science.
