Excerpt from Lectures on Systematic Theology
In many respects Mr. Pinney's theological and moral system will be found to differ both from the Calvinistic and Arminian. In fact, it is a system of his own, if not in its separate portions, yet in its con struction; and as a whole is at least unique and compact; a system which the Author has wrought out for himself, with little other aid than what he has derived from the fount itself of heavenly truth, and his own clear and strong perception of the-immutable moral principles and laws by which the glorious Author of the universe governs all his intellectual creatures.
There is one circumstance that will recommend the volume, and ought to recommend it, to' impartial inquirers who are not bound to the words of any master save their Divine one it is, that the Author in his youth was trained in none of the theological schools of his country, and had imbibed, therefore, no educational preference for one system more than another. He had been disciplined to argumenta tion, logic; and the laws of evidence, in a very different arena; and had advanced in the science of the Law before he had felt the truth of Christianity, or thought of studying its doctrines. His views, there fore, will be found more deserving of attention and examination, from the fact of his mental independence in the formation of them.
