Excerpt from A Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles, Vol. 1 of 2
If, then, in secular criticism and the treatment of facts so wide a distinction is preserved, it follows that the claim to treat the books of Scripture without considering any distinction which may exist between them and other books with regard to the qualification of their writers, and to ex amine the facts contained in each kind of record as if they possessed the same weight, is not to pursue the same rule that we use in the criticism of secular books, but the re verse. TO do so, therefore, would be a violation of the principle assumed, and an instance alike of unfairness and Of want of common sense.
