To some it may appear that the chapters devoted to the chronicles and philosophy of the Bible are superfluous. But that view overlooks the large number of even intelligent people who have more reverence for the ancient Book than familiarity with its contents. The chapters in question constitute an attempt faithfully to present, in the light of modern scholarship, the substance and spirit of those contents, often in their own language. Gently and reverently, but plainly, and almost by the mere repetition of the old stories and ideas, is demonstrated their futility in the satisfaction of modern curiosity concerning the deep things which they profess, according to the Creeds at least, authoritatively to treat. ; 388 pages
