The historical rather than the dogmatic character of Christianity, its transmission at least to us in an historical form, is becoming more and more evident. If this be so, how are we to make it yield its voice to the human conscience and to human hopes? We cannot use it as an oracle. We must take possession of it as a history, before we can construct it into a system. Thus to pass behind the veil of antiquity is the only method of rising to a genuine appreciation of the mind of Christ, or of attaining a clear vision of the perfect religion which it enshrines.—Martineaii.

Chaque livre de la Bible, appel£ d son tour, devra marquer sa place dans 1'histoire et reVeler a la conscience spirituelle son degr£ de 1'inspiration. Snivant les re'ponses qu'il aura faites, une part plus ou moins directe lui sera devolue dans 1'ceuvre de reconstruction du fait de la reVelation, a 1'aide des sources historiques du canon. Et c'est alors, mais alors seulement, que 1'on pourra tenter, aveo quelqne chance de succes, d'^crire sur la doctrine chre^ienne nn livre qui r^ponde a la reality.—Woetphal.

Ich bin Uberzeugt, dass die Bibel immer schoner wird, je mehr man sia

versteht, d.b. je mehr man einsieht und anschaut, dass jedes Wort, das wir

allgemein auffassen und im besondem auf uns anwenden, nach gewissen

Umstandeo, nach Zeit- und Ortsverhaltnissen einen eigenen, besondern,

uniuittelbar individuellen Bezug gehabt hat.—Goethe.
