Excerpt from Light and Truth, or Bible Thoughts and Themes: Old Testament
Bring the Book, said Sir Walter Scott, upon his deathbed, to Lockhart. What book asked Lockhart. What Book replied the dying novelist, there is but one Book. Yes; there is but one Book, and we shall one day know this, when that which is human shall pass away (like the mists from some Lebanon peak), and leave that which is divine to stand out and to shine out alone in its unhidden grandeur.
God is now recalling humanity to the book which was written for it. By the very attacks made on it by enemies, as well as by the studies of its friends, he is bringing us back to this one volume, as the light shining in a dark place That we may know the past, the present, and the future, he is bidding us betake ourselves to it.
Let us read it, let us study it, let us love it, let us reverence it.
