Excerpt from Babel and Bible: A Lecture on the Significance of Assyriological Research for Religion
The minute, exhaustive scrutiny to which untold numbers of Christian scholars in Germany, England, and America - the three Bible-lands, as we may justly call them - are submitting the Old Testament, that little library of books of most varied hue, is nothing less than astounding.
Of these silent intellectual labors the world has as yet taken but little notice. Yet this much is certain, that when the sum-total and ultimate upshot of the new knowledge shall have burst the barriers of the scholar's study and entered the broad path of life, - shall have entered our churches, schools, and homes, - the life of humanity will be more profoundly stirred and be made the recipient of more significant and enduring progress than it has by all the discoveries of modern physical and natural science put together. So far, at any rate, the conviction has steadily and universally established itself that the results Of the Babylonian and Assyrian excava tions are destined to inaugurate a new epoch, not only in our intellectual life, but especially in the criticism and comprehension of the Old Testament, and that from now till all futurity the names of Babe! And Bible will remain inseparably linked together.
