The Bible Appreciated

To the question, Is the Bible in danger? the Christian Register replies:—

"Yes, it is in danger of being laid upon the shelf never to be read again. Probably the majority of business men never open a Bible, but the cause of this neglect does not lie in the higher criticism or in any of the so-called attacks upon the Bible. Many theories of the origin, duty, and destiny of mankind which, it was claimed, were based upon the Bible, are passing away and with them is passing interest in the book which is held responsible for these outworn doctrines. It may be that the Bible will come again into the place it deserves to hold in the first rank among the records of the past, as the result of the new studies which reveal it in its true character, as a record of the spiritual struggles of some of the most excellent seekers for truth and doers of righteousness who have ever lived upon the earth. The very efforts which have resulted in the total destruction of ancient dogmas concerning the will of God and the nature of man, have brought to light facts of wonderful interest to all students of human progress, and will, in time, cause the Bible to be read with new delight by those who are interested in the history of their race."
