Excerpt from An Historico-Critical Introduction to the Canonical Books of the New Testament

IN giving at length to the public this long-announced Introduction to the New Testament, with the joyful feel ing which attends the completion of a long-delayed task, I cannot conceal my fear of disappointing the expectations which seem to have been entertained respecting the work. The friends of critical inquiry may be dissatisfied because the results arrived at are, to a large extent, indefinite; while they who regard our Holy Scriptures with devout reverence only, may be disturbed by the freedom of the investigation. I would gladly have arrived at results more definite and more in harmony with the views generally received in the Church; but the Truth can alone decide. That is no gen uine love of Truth which is not ready to sacrifice its in ordinate curiosity where certainty is unattainable, as well as its pious prejudices. The value of criticism I place chiefly in the activity to which it excites the spirit of in quiry; but this spirit of inquiry can never harm a genuine Christian piety.

There are two subjects of investigation in regard to which I have especially failed to satisfy myself, - the His tory of the d104, and the Origin of the first three Gospels.
