Overview

A revelation in writing must necessarily be given in "words." The separate words, therefore, in
which it is given must have the same importance and authority as the revelation as a whole. If
we accept the Bible as a revelation from God, and receive it as inspired by God, we cannot
separate the words of which that inspired revelation is made up, or admit the assertion "that the
Bible contains the Word of God, but is not the Word of God." The position conveyed by such an
expression is both illogical and impossible.
As we design this work for those who accept the Scriptures as the Word of God, we do not
propose to offer any arguments in proof of its inspiration.
The Bible is its own best proof of its inspiration. It claims to be "the Word of God"; and if it be
not what it claims to be, then it is not only not a "good book," but is unworthy of our further
attention.
We cannot understand the position of those who assert and believe that many of its parts are
myths and forgeries, while at the same time they continue to write commentaries upon it, and
accept their emoluments and dignities for preaching or lecturing about it.
If we were told and believed that a bank-note in our possession is a forgery, we certainly should
take no further interest in it, beyond mourning the loss which we had sustained. Our action
would thus be consistent with our belief.
We write, therefore, for those who, receiving the claims of the Scriptures as being the Word of
God, desire to study it so as to understand it and enjoy it.
