Old Testament Theology: Or the History of the Hebrew Religion from the Year 800 (Classic Reprint) Details

Excerpt from Old Testament Theology: Or the History of the Hebrew Religion From the Year 800
The attempt is here made to write the history of Hebrew beliefs from the year 800 B. C., as these are preserved for us in the Old Testament, to delineate the personality of each contributor to them, and to estimate the place of each in the onward movement. The time seems ripe for such a work.
The appearance of treatises on related topics, literary and historical, in the field of Old Testament study, and the demand for these, imply the further need for a constructive account of Hebrew religion as a living growth in history. Two works have just appeared which may well be said to mark an epoch in Biblical study in this country, viz., Professor Cheyne's Bampton Lectures for 1889, on "The Origin of the Psalter," and Professor Driver's "Introduction to the Literature of the Old Testament." Let me here thank Professor Cheyne for his magnificent work, so eloquent and so rich in stores of learning. By it he renders signal service to all thoughtful religious teachers, and through them to the whole kingdom of God. It has been a deep pleasure to me to see that method of work with Old Testament documents which I have contended for in this volume so clearly laid down and so strictly followed by Professor Cheyne in his handling of the Psalms.
