Comments

A volume from the private library of the Reverend John Henry Augustus Bomberger (1817-1890), founder and first President of Ursinus College.

This text represents a proto-Fundamentalist approach to the literal inerrancy of the Scriptures. Bomberger's own answer to this "Bible question" of the 1800s was a cautious one, not unlike that given by Charles Hodge at Princeton. Yet, unlike the followers of Hodge, the followers of Bomberger at the Ursinus School of Theology never embraced scriptural inerrancy. In time the Ursinus group accepted (with some reservations) the historico-critical approach to Biblical studies.
