The Critical Review of Theological Philosophical Literature, Vol. 6

Excerpt from The Critical Review of Theological Philosophical Literature, Vol. 6 Space will not allow me to linger upon this interesting aspect of Professor Moore's Commentary. But I have just one regret to express about the book and that is, that the Introduction should not have included two additional sections, dealing the one with the History, the other with the Religious Thought Of the book. In the case of both subjects there is clearly an Opening for separate treatment. The details are, I know, carefully discussed as they come up for notice in the course of the Commentary. But a summary of results would have been most welcome and helpful. It would also have mitigated the appearance of repellent severity which is suggested by an Introduction containing dis quisitions only upon Structure, Chronology, and Text. The omission of the religious element appears to me to constitute the only Serious defect in the book. I call attention to it, because, in these days, when the interests in mere literary criticism are apt to assume an absorbing character, it is really essential that the student should, in every way, have it impressed upon him that is only a means to an end, and that the end which every Old Testament student has in View, is the deeper understanding Of each narrative as a portion of the life Of the Israelite people, and as a picture of that Divine training through which the people passed, and of which the records are profitable still for our Spiritual learning and guidance. A Commentary omits its most important function if it neglects the religious teaching Of a book. The best Com mentator will indicate the Spiritual lessons to be drawn from the national history and from the records of the guidance that was given to the people and to its teachers by the Divine Spirit. This is not incompatible with the scientific treatment of history and text. It is to be deplored if the opportimity is lost, or if the attempt is abandoned as impracticable.
