Excerpt from Authority: Ecclesiastical and Biblical
There is an attempt made in this volume to do propor tionate justice to all three of the factors which have been named, and to show that each is vital, along with super natural grace and experience, to success in attaining a true knowledge of God and of spiritual verities. In brief, the writer sympathizes with the emphasis in each case, whether it is placed upon ecclesiastical authority, or upon biblical authority, or upon reason. He believes, however, that the three tendencies need to be taken up into a larger and richer conception of the process of Spiritual knowl edge and of the bases of certitude. A threefold cord is stronger than any one of its strands, and its strength lies in the fact that the several strands are Mined into one.
