Excerpt from The Church Quarterly Review, Vol. 5
Still further, Mansel had only himself to thank for giving his adversaries a gratuitous advantage in the controversies which occurred about his works. 'or want Of a very simple change of phraseology in a crucial portion of his system, which he declined to make, and which would have deprived the objections taken to it of nine-tenths of their force, he weighted the scales against himself. This point will receive attention presently. Enough has been said to account for what we believe to be only the temporary neglect of a great leader, and to suggest that it may be worth while to place his position before the reader in an intelligible form. If it should appear that he has been unduly neglected, it may also follow that it is unsafe to depart from the lines which he has laid down, and that the best prospect for any success in building up a Christian Philosophy on points required by the special attacks of the present day will lie in strengthening and improving the foundations he has laid.
