One of these deserves immediate notice. The movement threatens to obscure the main religious issue of the age. It is largely the work of a party of whom a representative and leader is Professor Charles A. Briggs, the foremost American Old Testament scholar- and it has come in the nick of time to divert attention and attack from Professor Briggs own province of scholarship, by setting the denomination by the ears upon such matters as justification by faith, infant salvation, the middle state, reprobation, and the divine attributes. It could not more certainly have produced this effect if it had been so designed.

And, so far, this has been its most important effect.For, as Dr. McCosh has wisely observed, the issue involved in the new biblical learning must take precedence of all other theological questions. Whether of his own choice or not, Professor Briggs stands, not for creed-revision, nor for the importation into the middle and western states of the nugatory middle-state controversy, which has trivialized and otherwise cursed New England, - but for the new scholarship.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
