C h a p t e r Home  | T O C  | I n d e x XII PREFACE of the observances which it enjoins, bears witness to the fact that lsrael’s civilization, though permeated by a different spirit from that of other ancient nations, was nevertheless reared upon the same material basis; and much light may often be thrown, both upon the institutions and customs to which it alludes, and upon the manner in which they are treated by the Hebrew legislator, from the archæological re-searches of recent years. Nor is this all. The study of Deuteronomy carries the reader into tbe very heart of the critical problems which arise in connexion with the Old Testament. At almost every  step, especially in the central, legislative part ( c. 12– 26),  the question of the relation of Deuteronomy to other parts  of the Pentateuch forces itself upon the student’s attention. In dealing with the passages where this is the case, I have stated the facts as clearly and completely as was possible within the limits of space at my disposal, adding, where necessary, references to authorities who treat them at greater length. As a work of the Mosaic age, Deuteronomy, I must own, though intelligible, if it stood perfectly alone, — i. e. if the history of Israel had been other than it was, — does not seem to me to be intelligible, when viewed in the light shed upon it by other parts of the Old Testament: a study of it in that light reveals too many fea-tures which are inconsistent with such a supposition. The entire secret of its composition, and the full nature of the sources of which its author availed himself, we cannot hope to discover; but enough is clear to show that, however regret-fully we may abandon it, the traditional view of its origin and authorship cannot be maintained. The adoption of this ver-dict of criticism implies no detraction either from the in-spired authority of Deuteronomy, or from its ethical and re-ligious value. Deuteronomy marks a stage in the Divine edu-cation of the chosen people: but the methods of God’s spiri-tual providence are analogous to those of His natural provi-dence: the revelation of Himself to man was accomplishednot  once for all, but through many diverse channels ( Heb.11),  and by a gradual historical process; and the stage in thatprocess  to which Deuteronomy belongs is not the age of
