About this Item

This volume has been written in the hope that it may prove helpful in the present perplexity. The Bible has irretrievably lost the place once accorded to it by the consent of Christendom, and this is coming to be realized by an ever-increasing number. Not criticism alone, nor even chiefly, has been responsible for the change; combined advance from several sides has made the old position untenable. It is a momentous change and might easily prove tragic. The retribution for extravagant claims is apt to be the repudiation of all claims whatsoever. But those who accept the truth of Christianity must find in Scripture the classical documents of their religion. To plead for the acceptance of our faith is no part of the present enterprise; for what the author has to say on this theme he would refer the reader to his volume, Christianity: Its Nature and Its Truth, to which this work is intended to be a companion. But while in many ways the defence of the Bible has been lightened by the earlier work, he has felt that some statement of the attitude he has adopted towards Scripture was its necessary completion. It is the writers conviction that while a position injudiciously selected can be no longer held, the defenders of the Bible have been driven to ground from which they will not easily be dislodged. If some claims made for it cannot be sustained, other claims, and those the most vital, may be substantiated. Bookseller Inventory # 003098
