Excerpt: "When the writer of this thesis was about ten years of age, he heard a statement which caused him a great deal of concern. The statement was made by a woman who was held as practically "the ideal" in Christian womanhood. She was a Sunday School teacher, which position alone gave her considerable esteem and authority in the boy's mind. The statement was only a passing remark in the course of a conversation with the writer's mother, but it struck a chord in the heart of that ten year old boy which made him doubt the truth of the statement. Her remark, in essence, was as follows: "The Old Testament has a lot of interesting stories, but I don't believe it is much good to Christians today. I think the New Testament is the part of the Bible for us today." "
