In the 1740s, while studying at Oxford, English poet Gilbert West and the Baron George Lyttelton set out together to disprove two major events in Christian history: Saul’s conversion and the Resurrection.

This work is Gilbert West’s letter reporting his findings to Lyttelton. West examines the prophecies of the Old Testament and the credibility of the New Testament, concluding ultimately the Christianity was indeed divine revelation.
