A Modern View of Inspiration

THE following article, which was published in the Christian Oracle of Chicago, contains the views of Professor Oscar T. Morgan, who was removed from the chair of Sanscrit, Hebrew, and Greek in Drake University, because he would not refrain from teaching his views.

In view of the fact that a widely circulated statement has gone out to the daily papers in regard to my disbelief in the inspiration of the Bible, and in response to an invitation from the Oracle management, I am glad to make the following statement concerning my position on the inspiration of the Bible. I do not do this as a matter of personal defense. The effect that the report may have on my individual prospects does not greately concern me. But for the sake of Drake University, and for fear that some hesitating soul may be made to stumble over the supposed fact that one who has been a teacher of the Bible has been led to deny its inspiration, some explanation seems to be demanded.
