The last paragraph of the preface states:
"If this little book of mine can only show that theology has nothing to fear from all the science that is going, thal all true theologeans are just as eager as their neighbours to learn all that science has to teach them, in assurance that it will only make the foundations of their faith more stable and secure in the end, then it will not have been given to the world in vain. sic prosit."
