Excerpt from Radical Criticism: An Exposition and Examination of the Radical Critical Theory Concerning the Literature and Religious System of the Old Testament Scriptures

Hence also Professor Mead's emphatic assertion: "I regard the Higher Criticism as not only legitimate, but as very useful, and indiscriminate condemnation of it as foolish. Genuine criticism is nothing but the search after truth; and of this there cannot be too much."

But, as the Lower Criticism has been abused by those who have insisted upon radical reconstructions of the Hebrew text, and as the Exegetical Criticism has been abused by those who have propounded false theories of interpretation, from the days of the Talmudists down to the present time, so the Higher Criticism has been abused by those who have engaged in wild speculation concerning the history, literature, and religion of the ancient Hebrews. It is against the abuse of this science that Dr. Beattie's book is directed, as the title of the work itself indicates. He sees the gravity of the issue; "he knows that the assaults of Colenso, Kuenen, and Wellhausen are delivered against the central keep of Protestantism, - the supreme authority of the Bible in matters of religion." And yet he avoids both of the mistakes into which so many conservative writers of less learning and ability have fallen.
