Excerpt from The Union Bible Companion: Containing the Evidences of the Divine Origin, Preservation, Credibility, and Inspiration of the Holy Scriptures; An Account of Various Manuscripts and English Translations, All the Books, and the Chief Doctrines, of the Bible
A manual for bible-classes, whether in churches or families, which should also serve as a popular Compendium of Divinity for our missionaries and teachers, has long been a desideratum. This is a questioning age and the duty of being ready to give an answer to every man that asketh us a reason of the hope that is in us, is enjoined by the highest authority. But where shall the bible-class Teacher or the Missionary turn when he wishes to anticipate or repel attacks upon the Authenticity, the Credibility, the Uncorrupted Preservation, or the Inspiration, of the Holy Scriptures? To avail himself of the investigations Of Oriental travellers? Or to prepare for the intelligent exposition of the Books of the Bible?
There are, indeed, ample resources in the treatises of Lardner.
