Published in 1892, Through Christ to God, which is subtitled “A Study in Scientific Theology,” is Joseph Beet’s statement on the sound facts of the Gospel of Christ. He asserts that the Gospel’s truth can be shown through historical, scientific, and philosophical methods. Beet aims his work to be an exposition of all that is known touching the unseen basis of religion: subjecting religion to objective analysis, with evidence to prove its tenets.
About the Author
Joseph Agar Beet (1840-1924) was a Wesleyan College pastor and professor of theology, and one of the great Bible expositors of his generation. His views on eschatology and his modernist sympathies got him into trouble. He escaped charges of heresy in 1902, gaining his freedom of speech back only after announcing his retirement two years later. His commentaries on the epistles to the Corinthians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Philemon, and Galatians still continue to be cited.
