Sir Robert Anderson (1841-1918) was converted to Christ at the age of nineteen and almost immediately began to preach in his native Dublin where he trained for a legal profession at Trinity College. He became a respected member of the Irish Home Office and an expert on criminal investigation. In 1888, he was summoned to Scotland Yard, London, to serve as Chief of the Criminal Investigation Department, an office he filled with distinction until retirement in 1896. In the midst of his many duties, he managed to gain a profound knowledge of the Bible, preach in various conferences, and write seventeen books.
Daniel In The Critics' Denby Sir Robert Anderson
In this carefully argued polemic, Anderson refutes higher criticism and its adherents by
First published in 1909, Daniel in the Critics' Den was Sir Robert Anderson's response to skeptics who believed the Book of Daniel to be a forgery. These "higher" critics pointed to alleged errors and anachronisms that cast doubt upon its authenticity.
In this carefully argued polemic, Anderson refutes higher criticism and its adherents by articulating their objections one by one and thoroughly discrediting them. Meticulously documented and including no fewer than seven comprehensive appendices, this often-cited classic of Biblical scholarship will engage the modern pastor, religious historian, and lay person alike.
While at Scotland Yard, Irish police official and religious scholar SIR ROBERT ANDERSON (1841-1918) helped investigate the Jack the Ripper murders, but he is best remembered for his works of Bible study, including The Coming Prince, Daniel in the Critics' Den, and The Silence of God.
