Excerpt from Modern Thought and Traditional FaithThere has never been a time in the history of scholarship when Truth for Truth's sake was so earnestly pursued as now. There has never been an age when the scholar was so fully and critically equipped for the ascertainment of Truth as in the present. It is in these convictions that this book is written.The ground reviewed in this volume is mostly historical, and the greater part of the facts as set forth have long been accepted without challenge. At the risk of appearing quite elemental, I have, in the earlier chapters, traversed a history which to scholars has long been familiar. These chapters, while not exhaustive as discussions, do, I believe, so indicate the character of the medi?val ages, the faith, the science, the political conditions of those ages, as to make sufficiently clear the character of the background from which the modern thought-world has emerged.Owing to mental habits which are controlling in many minds, and which have been domesticated in traditional thinking, I may not, perhaps, hope, especially in the brief section of the book devoted to the history of biblical criticism, to meet in all cases with sympathetic readers. I can only say, however, that throughout the preparation of this volume I have been infinitely far removed from a desire to disturb the faith of any for the sake simply of so doing.There are some things, however, which seem to me reasonably certain.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
