The Christian Dispensation Miraculous by Boys, Thomas

This very interesting article was first published in the February, 1831 edition of the periodical, The Jewish Expositor, of which Boys was editor. It was then published separately as a pamphlet with a lengthy introduction, from which our version is taken. It is an important glimpse into the miraculous controversy of the late 1820's and early 1830's. Boys was not a 'follower' of Edward Irving, but sought to extract the question of the miraculous from the current situation and examine it in a solely Scriptural light; something the vast literature of the time had not bothered to do. This pamphlet was answered by Baptist Wriothesley Noel, which is also available on this site. A second edition was later published with supplementary material on the miraculous healing of Miss Fancourt.
