A Companion to Biblical Studies
Excerpt from A Companion to Biblical Studies: Being a Revised and Rewritten Edition of the Cambridge Companion to the BibleMore than twenty years have elapsed since The Cambridge Companion to the Bible was published. During that period Biblical Research has continued to be active and fruitful, and the old Companion is not sufficient for the wants of the present day. The time has come for the issue of a new edition - or rather, of a new book, which covers most of the old ground, but at the same time contains many important additions. The general structure of the old book remains, but fresh articles have been added, old articles have been re-written, and every page has passed under a revising eye. It is not invidious to single out for mention one of the new articles, for the writer is venerated by all readers of theological literature in Great Britain. The pages devoted to the Revelation of St John are from the hand of Dr Henry Barclay Swete, whose retirement from the Regius Professorship of Divinity took place on Sept. 29, 1915.The present book contains some seventy fewer pages than the old, but the pages themselves are larger. Some of the old articles have been improved by being shortened, and room has thus been found for much new material. Dr Westcott's article on Sacred Books of other faiths has been omitted with much regret, but it was felt that only the hand of the writer could have adapted it successfully to modem days. Special attention has been given to the New Testament. Besides Dr Swete's article there are new contributions from Dr A. E. Brooke, Mr Valentine-Richards and Mr Dean Smith. Another addition is the article on the Theology of the N.T. by Mr G. H. Clayton. Mr Elmslie and Mr Lanchester have written new articles on the Old Testament.The Dean of Wells and Professor Gwatkin have revised their contributions to the Companion of 1892.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
