"While the Psalms of Solomon, dating from the middle of the first century B. C, have long been known, a Syriac version of them has been found whose MS. is accompanied by the MS. of the hitherto unknown collection here entitled 'The Odes of Solomon'-a document of higher antiquity than any other non-canonical Christian writing. . . . These Odes are regarded as produced amidst Jewish-Christian influences, but, at least in part, at a somewhat earlier date, and are justly pronounced 'a memorial of the first importance for rightly understanding the beliefs and experiences of the primitive church.' " -Outlook

"The matter presented to us in this humble guise bids fair to stand forth as one of the greatest treasures of early Christian literature. 1n the case of a work destined to be so widely discussed and to play so important a role in the history of early Christian literature, one wonders what could have induced the experienced editor to omit all indices. The fine reserve, the carefully judicial, conservative spirit so characteristic of the best English scholarship of today, is not the least of the good qualities of this book." -M. Sprengling

"Dr. Harris's introduction, like his notes on the separate Odes, throws a flood of light on the topics to which we have referred and many others. There is, however, likely to be much difference of opinion on not a few of his details." -Bible World

"We may congratulate ourselves that this first English version of the Odes is the work of a scholar of so much literary feeling as Dr. Harris. He has nobly interpreted these beautiful works of religion. We only regret that the editor has given us no index of his work or the Odes. Patristic study in particular is indebted afresh to Dr. Harris for a new monument of the greatest antiquity and interest." -E. J. Goodspeed (Bible World)

"I have endeavoured to do honour to the gifted editor even while criticising him. Able and instructive (even on folklore) as Dr. Harris's introduction is, it suffers through his not having recognized that the passages which are most plainly Christian are interpolations."
-T. K. Cheyne

"A notable addition has been made to our scanty collection of early Christian books." -Outlook
