My wife has collected some books of devotion, bibles etc. while we have been
here. I was perusing one this evening.
It says of the attacks on the Bible
"It has been also almost incessantly assailed by weapons of a far different
kind, which to any other book would be more dangerous than either fire or
sword. In these assaults, wit and ridicule have wasted all their shafts;
misguided reason has been compelled, though reluctantly, to lend her aid;
and after defeats innumerable, has been again dragged to the field. The
arsenals of learning have been emptied to arm her for the contest; and in
search of means to prosecute it with success, recourse has been had not only
to remote ages and distant lands, but even to the bowels of the earth, and
the regions of the stars: yet still the object of these attacks remains
uninjured, while one army after another of its assailants has melted away."
W. Nicholson, A Book That Will Suit You: Showing How The Christian Is
Blessed with All Spiritual Blessings in Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus,"
Halifax, UK: Milner and Sowerby, 1860), p. 229
Sounds a bit like he doesn't believe the learned's view of the world. The
reference to the stars, the bowels of the earth and remote ages, is
obviously a reference to the science of the day. This book was in its 14th
edition in 1860.
for lots of creation/evolution information
