Back to the Bible: Or, The New Protestantism
Review and Herald, 1920 - 235 pages
Few if any books of modern times have attempted any complete restatement of the fundamental truths of Christianity in the setting demanded by the exigencies of th present situation. But the number of those who in their hearts are stillin clinging to the Bible as in very deed the authentic word of God, is out of all proportion to the small amount of attention they have hitherto attracted in the literacy world; and it is merely as voicing the views of this very large group of what may be called the ultraconservatices, that this book is written. It is no empty boast to say that all the fundamental positions here taken are in complete harmony with the views of thousands of people of culture and education scattered over the whole civilized world. The present volume merely gives voice to the unformulated thoughts of these multitudes, who ahve caught such vivid glimpses of the needs of the present hour that they already recognize another great world reform as now due, a reform centering around that first and most basic truth of religion, namely, our relationship to the Creator and his relationship to us. - I Neo-Protestantism.

Page 231 - They, looking back, all the eastern side beheld Of Paradise, so late their happy seat, Waved over by that flaming brand ; the gate With dreadful faces thronged, and fiery arms. Some natural tears they dropt, but wiped them soon ; The world was all before them, where to choose Their place of rest, and Providence their guide : They, hand in hand, with wandering steps and slow, Through Eden took their solitary way.
