The Bible and Other Sacred Books free pdf Excerpt from The Bible and Other Sacred Books It has become an important preparation for the profitable study of the Bible to be able to appreciate its rank and value as compared with other sacred books. During the last half century the learned research and diligent labour of scholars have made accessible to us whole literatures of nations that were comparatively unknown before. It is discovered that the ancient Egyptians, the Persians, the Hindus, the Chinese, and other nations, have had their sacred writings, some of which claim an antiquity greater than the books of Moses. There are not wanting, in Christian lands, men disposed to argue that these sacred books of the nations possess a value as great as the scriptures of the Christian faith, and are entitled to the same veneration. Such claims are not to be ignored or treated with contempt. There have been, doubtless, savage islanders who imagined that the sun rose and set for their sole benefit, and who never dreamed that the sounding waters about their island home were at the same time washing beautiful corals and precious pearls on other shores. Among civilized peoples, also, there are those who have no appreciation of lands, nations, literatures, and religions which differ from their own. This, however, is a narrowness unworthy of the Christian scholar. The truly catholic Christian will not refuse to acknowledge the manifest excellences of races or religions that differ from his own. The study and comparison of other scriptures will serve, among other things, to show how preeminently the Christian's Bible is adapted to the spiritual nature and religious culture of all mankind.
