  • Hasirri
This book is a must-read for any serious student of the Bible -- especially anyone who supposes that the Bible is the "word of God." The book traces the evolution of six ideas -- God, man, right and wrong, suffering, fellowship with God, and immortality -- through the centuries over which the various books of the Bible were written.

When I first read this book, I was trying to decide whether the Bible was really the word of God. Reading the book made it clear that these ideas had evolved over time, and with various prophets. Since God is eternal and unchanging, His word would also be unchanging. This book represented a major step forward in my understanding of God and His word.
  • Welen
Too many preachers and teachers neglect to tell us what the Bible really says. Read this for real knowledge.
  • Morlurne
My father used to enjoy listening to this pastor on the radio. Hard to realize that this was written even before the second world war. Very progressive and enlightening. I feel like I am listening to my father again.
  • HeonIc
I like the book because it may be helpful in school, but the verbiage is a bit outdated.
i sometimes need a guide to understand this guide. I believe once this guide is used
for class assignments it will be quite useful.

Harry Emerson Fosdick (1878-1969) was a prominent liberal Baptist minister and author. He wrote many other books, such as The Living of These Days: The Autobiography of Harry Emerson Fosdick,Riverside Sermons, etc.

He wrote in the Introduction to this 1938 book, "This present book is written neither by a technical scholar nor for scholars. It is written for the interested student and endeavors to build a bridge over which available information concerning developing Biblical ideas may pass into the possession of a larger public... with the Bible still the world's 'best-seller,' there must be many whose reading of it would gain meaning and interest if the knowledge possessed by the expertly informed were more easily at their disposal."

He begins by asserting that Yahweh, "the mountain god of Sinai," was "a storm god, associated with violent exhibitions of nature's power." (Pg. 4) However, the Jewish people "outgrew the original narrowness of their tribal ideas of God... because of a new extensiveness of vision in the direction of an individual faith." (Pg. 66) Later, it was Jesus "who mainly made the difference between the ideas of God in the two Testaments. Strangely enough, he did this without saying anything new about God or even trying to." (Pg. 40) He clarifies, nevertheless, that "the common opinion is mistaken that justice in the Old Testament if negative and in the New Testament positive." (Pg. 134) He notes, "Indeed, both the priestly and the prophetic heritage entered into early Christianity. Jesus himself taught a faithful observance of the Law." (Pg. 229) Perhaps surprisingly, he asserts that "Far from depreciating Paul... for attitudes that were inevitable in his time, a true historical judgment must applaud him for ideas ahead of his time." (Pg. 129)

Citing Job 9:24, he argues, "Here, once more, Jewish thought refused an easy escape and faced, in its full, unqualified difficulty, the mystery of evil in a world whose God is both omnipotent and good." (Pg. 178) Concerning the gospel reports of Jesus' resurrection, he opines, "No one who knows the full extent and complexity of the problem will be dogmatic about it... Only one thing is certain---the towering faith of the New Testament that Jesus is alive." (Pg. 295)

Though largely forgotten today, Fosdick is the classic modern "liberal preacher" (as well as the one who invented the term, "fundamentalist"). His writing, though, is still an excellent popular presentation of a modern Christian faith.
