Here's the next installment of the "name that author" game, following
after David O's example:

It is not merely in the matter of verbal expression or literary
composition that the personal idiosyncrasies of each author are freely
manifested..., but the very substance of what they write is evidently
for the most part the product of their own mental and spiritual
activities... [Each author of Scripture] gave evidence of his own
special limitations of knowledge and mental power, and of his personal
defects as well as of his powers.

[The Scriptures] are written in human languages, whose words,
inflections, constructions and idioms bear everywhere indelible traces
of error. The record itself furnishes evidence that the writers were
in large measure dependent for their knowledge upon sources and
methods in themselves fallible, and that their personal knowledge and
judgments were in many matters hesitating and defective, or even wrong.
