"The Bible is not an infallible Book, in the sense in which it is popularly supposed to be infallible. When we study the history of the several books, (the history of the canon, the history of the distribution and reproduction of the manuscript copies, and the history of the versions, when we discover that the 'various readings' of the differing manuscripts amount to one hundred and fifty thousand, the impossibility of maintaining the verbal inerrancy of the Bible becomes evident. We see how human ignorance and error have been suffered to mingle with this stream of living water throughout all its course; if our assurance of salvation were made to depend upon our knowledge that every word of the Bible was of divine origin, our hopes of eternal life would be altogether insecure." Newly designed and typeset for easy reading by Boomer Books.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Outdated, Early Revisionist Work 27. Dezember 2010
Von J. Oakes - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is less about who wrote the Bible and more of a glimpse into 19th century revisionism. Originally published in the late 1800's, Gladden discusses much of the then-current scholarship regarding Biblical authors and canonical development. However, given the time period in which the book was written, the book skews hard towards the revisionist school of thought, which usually denies the traditional views of authorship. There has been much scholarly work done in the 100+ years since this book's publication that refute many of the author's arguments. Instead of this book, I recommend interested readers to pick up "Who Really Wrote the Bible" by Clayton Howard Ford. This book should be taken only for what it is: an outdated revisionist work, representative only of the ideas of its time.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Book Wiser In Its Own Author's Estimation Than In Reality, But An Enjoyable Read Nonetheless 17. Dezember 2014
Von Nathan Albright - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is the example of a book written by someone who believes himself to be more conservative than he is, and whose writings more than a century in age remain relevant today as an example of a painful truth about human nature as well as an example of the sort of opinions that are taken as a fair sample of “reasonable” beliefs about the Bible. The painful truth this book demonstrates over and over again is that one will always read a book like the Bible and view it in the prism of our own interpretations, which we will view as reasonable even as we think that others are reading too much into texts. This tendency is something none of us is immune to–we can all see the specks in the eyes of others easier than the beam in our own eyes. This seems an inescapable part of being a human being when we cannot put ourselves properly in the perspective that others see us from, and ought to give us much reason to be humble.

This book represents quite a few notable trends of poor analysis of the Hebrew texts, ranging from an unwillingness to wrestle with the date of Job’s composition given the internal evidence of the Psalms to the tired arguments in favor of the documentary theory instead of a true internal source theory for Genesis to the refusal to see any Solomonic content in Ecclesiastes. He shares with Martin Luther a certain tendency to wish to read out certain books (like Esther and Ecclesiastes) from the canon and takes a somewhat dim view of the prophetic relevance of Revelation. In general, though, it must be admitted that his view of the New Testament is a lot closer to the truth than his view of the Hebrew scriptures, largely because it conforms more closely to his progressive view of justice than the considerably more rough Hebrew Bible. The book is organized well, examining each part of the Bible in a fair order, Law, Former Propehts, Major/Minor Prophets, Historical Writings, Poetry, Paul’s Epistles, and Acts, Gospels, Revelation and the General Epistles before dealing with the questions of canonicity, the human writing and collection of works, and the high degree of worth of the Bible.

Yet, as is often the case, it is the worth of this book rather than the worth of the Bible that is truly at question. Rightly does this book point out the problems with rabbinical theories as well as unproven traditions. Yet the author has too high a view of his own rationality, and is especially poor at recognizing the continuing value of ethical principles that he finds backwards, even as he correctly realizes that God has always worked with mankind by pointing to eternal principles even while urging the people He works with to move towards those principles one step at a time, in one way at a time, so that we may eventually be renewed and our nature changed without having to face all at once the massive level of change that God desires to see within us. We may never reach perfection in this life, but the inspiration of God’s Word is in us, as living epistles, and there is much in this book, despite all its flaws, that helps us to recognize all the more clearly the glory of God’s workings with such fallible human instruments as we are.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting from a historical perspective 20. Juni 2013
Von Robert J. Meyers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Gladden was a very good writer. However, advances in historical and archeological research since the book was written have passed it by. If you are interested in current understanding read Friedman's book with the same title. This book is primarily interesting to learn what religious liberals were thinking around the turn of the 19th century.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Resource 30. Oktober 2010
Von Rafael Vila - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Many times we get to attached to religion perspective that we omit the reality about the most basic concepts that makes us christians or better put believers. How essential to understand where it came from, how was develop. This book is one of many good resources that let us know more about our beliefs, to strengthen them not to diminish them. And for free... What a bargain. I might buy the pay version, this is really good.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting book 23. Februar 2013

It is an older book, but interesting in its perspective. Writer had his own perspective but obviously was trying very hard not to offend anyones religious views.
