Excerpt from The Life of Christ in Recent Research

The present volume is composite in its origin; and yet, although it was something of an afterthought to print the papers of which it is composed together, they have a considerable degree of unity both of time and purpose. All but one have been written within very little more than a year; and in several cases, as will be readily seen, one has grown out of another. The nucleus of the volume is formed by four lectures delivered in response to an invitation from Cambridge. They had also been rehearsed at Oxford; and the opportunity has been taken to add to them two supplementary lectures given here in the early summer of this year. Almost at the same time with the invitation from Cambridge I received another to lecture at the Church House; and this lecture appears as No. I of the present series ('The Symbolism of the Bible'), the idea in my mind being that some conception of the extent and nature of Biblical Symbolism would be helpful in connexion with the other lectures.
