Summary

First published in 1904, this volume questioned whether the Bible is in its entirety the literal Word of God. The author’s strong background in evangelical Christianity led them to question numerous theological experts and ministers on the topic and conclude that the Bible is as purely and entirely a human production as any other work of literature. Ruth argues instead that humanity’s knowledge of God has come about through developing the faculties with which God has endowed them and that the Bible is a history of humanity’s discovery of God. First considering whether the Bible can be considered the Word of God, the author moves on to cover topics including the evolution of Hebrew monotheism, the Bible canon, contraditions and miracles.
