The Scriptures Defended: Being a Reply to Bishop Colenso’s Book

Overview

Hirschfelder’s absorbing work is prefaced with an interesting introduction on the art of translation and a short history of the Bible’s translation. It then proceeds to argue that one of Colenso’s many blunders is judging the Scriptures in their translated forms as opposed to their original Hebrew for the purpose of rendering them inconsistent and improbable in their genuineness. A firm condemnation of Colenso’s methodologies, Hirschfelder’s The Scriptures Defended is a highly accomplished and diligent rebuttal to Colenso’s book.
