To the Editors of the Crimson:
There is to be an interesting meeting at Holden Chapel, Thursday, Oct. 11, at 6.45 p. m., to explain the Bible study work for Harvard students during the present college year. No man, who has the true Harvard spirit of thorough investigation on all subjects that are considered of value by thinking men, can afford to miss this meeting.
Certainly, every man who has more than a passing interest in the Bible owes it to himself to improve this opportunity to become better acquainted with it.
Even though one has no more laudable motive for studying the Bible, than that of personal culture, one can not afford to miss the rare training, which such study is bound to afford. Froude once said, "The Bible, thoroughly known, is a literature of itself, the rarest and richest in all departments of thought and imagery, which exists." When such a scholar has expressed such a decided conviction on the subject, has any man the right to call himself well educated, until he has at least some adequate knowledge of such a book.
In tomorrow's CRIMSON there will be an account of the courses to be offered this year. They will be worth examination at least, by every man in college.
