Excerpt from The First Christian Century: Notes on Dr. Moffatt's Introduction to the Literature of the New Testament

As a German classical scholar remarked (I think in "Hermes") some years ago, the methods of Biblical criticism are coming to be a jest among philologists. This book is a protest in the name of history and of literature against the revival of a method in criticism which I had supposed to be antiquated and discredited.
