Overview

When Old Testament scholar George Adam Smith (1856–1942) delivered the Lyman Beecher lectures at Yale University in 1899, he confidently declared that “modern criticism has won its war against traditional theories. It only remains to fix the amount of the indemnity.”

In this biography, Iain D. Campbell assesses Smith's critical approach to the Old Testament and evaluates its consequences, showing that Smith's life and work still raises questions about the relationship between biblical scholarship and evangelical faith.

Praise for the Print Edition

A compelling study.

—Thomas R. Corts, Samford University
