It is natural that the book demanding our belief in such great things should be asked for its credentials and that these credentials should be subjected to the most searching investigation. The Bible has nothing to fear, however, from the keenest scrutiny of any scholar who has only the desire to get at the truth. The trouble begins when a critic, who is hostile to its spiritual truth of who has a theory to maintain, takes a part in the investigation; even then the truth is sure, in time, to assert its rightful claim.-from "Study VI: The Christian's Book"Part of a respected series of books designed to direct Bible studies, this 1905 volume is still extremely useful for those looking to find guidance and wisdom in that ancient work. From the simplest of questions-What did Christ teach?-to those more profound-How can we apply Christian principles to modern life?-this useful book explores how to bring Christ's influence to bear at home, in the business world, and in society at large.HENRY THORNE SELL (1854-1928) also wrote Bible Studies in the Life of Christ and Bible Studies in the Life of Paul.
