When, nearly half a century ago, the Croall Trustees invited W.L.Davidson to deliver the twentieth series of Croall Lectures, they invited him to sum up, as far as this was possible ,the contribution made by Gifford Lecturers to the study of Theism. Davidson's book, Recent Theistic Discussion, was published in 1921. Since then no further attempt has been made to assess the total Gifford contribution to Natural Theology. of the renewed interest in the subject appropriate to attempt such a survey. There did not appear to be a complete list of published works in any form. The annotated bibliography In the light it seemed in Appendix 3 fills this gap and the thesis itself is an attempt to assess the contribution of Gifford lecturers to our understanding of Natural Theology and its present function. Since the work W3.S begun John MacQuarrie's Twentieth-Century Religious Thought has appeared (1963 ) and although its scope and intention are different the fact that Gifford lecturers and their lectures find such frequent mention is further evidence, if it were needed of our indebtedness to Lord Gifford and his lecturers.
