The Bible and Modern Criticism (eBook)
by Robert Anderson (Author)
At the bar we sometimes find a man's logic swamped by his learning; and so it is in theo logy. Thus wrote the late Lord Hatherley to me, in a private letter, thirty years ago, and went on to say that he wished for leisure to illustrate the poor reasoning power of some of the greatest German literati. Lord Hatherley was one of our first masters of evidence. He was a life-long student of the Holy Scriptures. And the modest Introduction to his Continuity is a fine summing up in favour of their properly supernatural character. That book was a noble lay contribu tion to the defence of faith. Another master of the practical application of legal science gives us another here.
