This superlative opinion of the Gospel according to Luke is the judgement of a critic who, whatever we may think of his theological position, must be acknowledged as a scholar of the first rank and an author of consummate artistic skill. It is not difficult to acquiesce in such a verdict. Of course, if we thought only of the literary graces of a work in estimating its attractiveness, we should not look to the Christian Scriptures to furnish us with successful rivals to Platos dialogues or Shakespeares plays. Appreciative readers of the New Testament have no desire to bring that volume, or any part of it, into competition with the Symposium or Ph do, with King Lear or Hamlet. Its claims on our regard are to be found in other regions than those assigned to the philosopher and the poet.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
