Paley's Horæ Paulinæ; or the Truth of the Seripture His. tory of St. Paul, evinced by a comparison of the Epistles which bear his name, with the Acts of the Apostles, and with ane another. 5th Ed. 8vo. “If the Epistles attributed to St. Paul, and the history of this Apostle, supposed to be written by St. Luke, were forgeries, it might be expected that, in some instances, they would contradict each other. The coinci. dence, on the other hand, might be glaring, and ostentatiously brought forward; or the epistles might consist of general doctrines, without alluding to any particular transactions of the history, styled in our translation, the acts of the Apostles. Either peculiarity might subject them to suspicion. On the contrary, though there are not many personal or secular remarks in these epistles, they sometimes occur, apparently without design ; and these, when traced in other epistles, or the history of St. Paul; are consistent, and support each other.
The obscure and unexpected coincidences it is Dr. P's. object to point out.” Crit. Rev. vol. 70, p. 595.-This piece may be useful to those who study St. Paul's epistles ; vide p. 205 af this work.
