"And to not a few this volume may be welcome as affording a clue to pressing difficulties which perplex and distress the thoughtful. Infidelity trades upon the silence of Heaven, the inaction of the Supreme. If there be a God, almighty and all-good, why does He not use His power and give proof of His goodness in the way men choose to expect of Him? The answer usually offered by the Christian apologist fails either to silence the opponent or to satisfy the believer. And rightly so, for it is lacking not only in cogency but in sympathy. The God of the Bible is infinite both in power and in compassion; and in other ages His people had public proof of this. Why, then, is He so silent?"
This book provides evidence against the Higher Criticism of the Bible by such people as Westcott and Hort and other nonbelievers. Yes, nonbelievers are being trusted to give us the correct text of the Bible, but they should not be trusted, as they are sabotaging the Bible text.
This book was highly praised when first published and went through five editions, but it is ignored by the so-called scholars of today.
“It is a book which should be placed in the library of all who are repelled by the methods of the critics.” —Daily Express
“This is a work for the present age. Sir Robert Anderson has rendered immense service by its publication. It should be widely circulated.” — The New
"Valuable as the author’s former works were, his latest volume excels them. . . . ‘The Bible and Modern Criticism’ should be read and digested by all thoughtful Christians, for its eloquent and scholarly testimony in favor of ‘The Scriptures of truth’ cannot fail to confirm believers and to assist waverers and all such as feel perplexed by the insidious reasonings of the New Critics. We could wish that copies of Sir Robert Anderson’s book were placed on the study shelves of all ministers and
teachers of the Gospel, and presented to the libraries of our theological colleges.” — The English Churchman
Sir Robert Anderson has written a trenchant and straight-forward book, which places critics, whether as radical as Prof. Cheyne or as conservative as Prof Driver, on their defense before men of common sense.” — The New York Tribune
