Excerpt from The Pentateuch and Book of Joshua Critically Examined, Vol. 2
Ir will be seen that, in this Second Part of my work, the argument to prove the non-mosaic and unhistorical character Of the Pentateuch is removed altogether from the ground on which the question was discussed in Part I, and is treated upon other, chieﬂy philological, grounds. My former book has had, I believe, the effect which I desired, having met wit-h such a reception, generally, at the hands of English readers, as satisfies me that there will now exist a very general feeling among them, that there is certainly something in the story Of the Exodus which needs to be explained, and assures me that the requisite attention will be given to the further examination of this important subject. It was my earnest desire and hope to secure such attention from the more thoughtful and intel ligent Of the Laity, without whose aid nothing, I knew, could be done to deliver the Church of England from the restraints Of those time-honoured traditions, which have hitherto checked freedom Of thought and speech among her members, and sealed, to a very great extent, the mouths of her doctors and clergy. But, in order to do this, it was absolutely necessary to awaken their interest in the question to be discussed, by treating it, in the first instance, in the most plain and popular manner.
