"Many thanks for the cuttings on higher criticism. I can"t help thinking that this movement is larely the result of trying to reduce (as I tried to do a few days ago!) Christianity to a comprehensible, logical system of ethics, rather than trying to realize that wonderful communion with God which must always be its source of faith, hope, love, and strength. "Religion would cease to be divine if it were capable of being compressed into the narrow limits of human comprehension; isn"t that right? "I am afraid I greatly prefer Dr Dale"s book to Bishop Westcott"s. It is so much easier to understand. Westcott is very well for Sundays, but rather exacting for a tired week-day brain! "The Bishop has returned from the Seychelles and is acting as our chaplin. He is a peculiar man, but I believe he is a very good one. "I am, your affectionate son. P.S. I find I have got a copy of Gore"s Prayer and the Lord"s Prayer, with your name in it. May I stick to it? I like it."
