Robertson Smith to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the Expositor, and the British Quarterly Review, in Relation to the Truth, Inspiration, and Authority of the Holy ScripturesTo those who are impressed with a deep sense of the importance of the questions which have arisen concerning the published writings of Professor W.

R. Smith, as affecting the very foundations of the Christian faith, it is unnecessary to offer any apology for the publication of the present pamphlet. Its object is to examine fairly, and as completely as possible, all the articles by Professor Smith, in the new edition of the Encyclop dia Britannica, and in other publications, which have been denounced as setting forth views inconsistent with a full belief in the Truth, Inspiration, and Authority of the Holy Scriptures. It is with great pain that the writer declares his conviction, for which the reasons will be exhibited in the following pages, that this inconsistency is real and complete, however blind Mr Smith himself may be to the fact.

That such is generally felt to be the case is evident, not only from the expressions of pain and regret, of anxiety and alarm, which have proceeded from Christians of all evangelical denominations, since the article Bible in the Encyclop dia Britannica, was published, but also from the universal jubilation of infidels and semi-infidels, and of the godless and profane, who have exulted in a fancied triumph over what they are pleased to call Bibliolatry, and have greeted Mr Smith with what ought to be to him most unacceptable praise.

Principal Tulloch has only expressed the common sentiment of men of all classes, - of those who deplore the position assumed by Mr Smith, and of those who rejoice at it, - in saying that the controversy which has arisen concerning his views touches the very root of dogmatic Protestantism.It would not have been fair to have entered upon an examination, such as is here attempted, of those productions of Mr Smiths pen which have been censured as expressing erroneous and dangerous views, without taking into account all that he has himself written or publicly spoken concerning them and the censures which have been pronounced on them.

Everything of this kind has, therefore, been carefully considered- but, alas! nothing has been found to modify, even in the slightest degree, the conclusion come to from the study of the articles themselves.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
