Christianity and Agnosticism: A Controversy by Henry Wace, Thomas Henry Huxley, William Connor Magee, William Hurrell Mallock, Humphry Ward 1889
"Seventy years later comes the Montpellier physician, Jean Astruc. He first notices the key to the whole enigma, the distinctive use made of the words 'Elohim' and 'Jahveh.' This leads him to the supposition of different strata in the Pentateuch, and from him descend in direct line Kuenen and Wellhausen. It is instructive, by the  way, to notice that all the time Astruc will have nothing to say to arguments against the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch."

A History of the Textual Criticism of the New Testament
by Marvin Richardson Vincent 1899

The Problem of the Old Testament Considered with Reference to Recent Criticism by James Orr 1906

Old Testament Criticism and the Christian Church by John Edgar McFadyen 1903
"In the first place, the very words Higher Criticism are odious to many, because of what they seem to involve. To not a few, Biblical criticism of any kind is practically synonymous with impiety: what is man that he should dare to criticise the word of God ? And " higher" suggests presumption. The term is no doubt unfortunate, but fair minds should not allow the term to create an initial prejudice against the process for which the term stands. Criticism is not destruction. It is judgment."
 
History of the Sacred Scriptures of the New Testament by Eduard Reuss 1884 (Volume 2)
"Johann Salomo Semler was the first to undertake to improve upon the common conceptions of the canon. He gave to his criticism an essentially historical basis by commending and practicing the study of the ancient ecclesiastical literature, thus leading to a recognition of the gradual and fluctuating formation of our present collection."

Reconstruction in Theology by Henry Churchill King 1901
"It is unfortunate that in the early stages of higher criticism in America, for particular reasons, it came to be associated, in the minds of many, with a rather bitter and arrogant spirit; and it is even more unfortunate that, for many more, for other special reasons, it was identified with the most extreme results of an a priori anti-supernaturalistic school."

The higher criticism and the Bible by William Binnington Boyce 1881

A Reply to Harnack on the Essence of Christianity by Hermann Cremer 1903

The Genesis of Genesis by Benjamin Wisner Bacon 1891

The Quarterly Review 1863
"Truly the higher criticism indulges in strange assertions and very absurd difficulties! With regard to the second passage, we may ask why a Redactor and an Elohist are to be called into existence to explain the alternation of names in this passage more than in Exod. iii. 4, Ps. xxxvi. 6-8, or Ps. Ixix. 13, 30-35, &c. &c. It is not the higher criticism, but plain common sense, which is needed to reject such arguments. But this is only one proof out of many that the magic wand of modern exegesis transforms that which would be esteemed worthless in the mouth of a believer into 'high criticism' in that of a sceptical commentator."

The New Appreciation of the Bible by Willard Chamberlain Selleck 1906

The Old Testament and the New Scholarship by John Punnett Peters 1902

The Bible in the Nineteenth Century: Eight Lectures by Joseph Estlin Carpenter 1903

Dr. Friedrich Bleek's Lectures on the Apocalypse by Friedrich Bleek, Samuel Davidson 1875

Evidences of Christianity by Lonsdale Ragg 1909
"THE BIBLE AND MODERN CRITICISM often attack religion with the weapon of the 'Higher Criticism.' Scientific criticism, they say, has utterly discredited the Bible ; and with the Bible falls Christianity. Any one, however, who will take the trouble to read a little book like Professor Kirkpatrick's Divine Library of the 0ld Testament, may see something of the real tendency and scope of the Higher Criticism. If anything is discredited by sound criticism, it is the mistaken theory of verbal inspiration, which allowed the Bible no kinship whatever with non-biblical literature, and refused to recognise in it a human element, as the medium through which God has spoken to man."

Six lectures on the higher criticism upon the Old Testament by William Binnington Boyce 1878

Founders of Old Testament Criticism: Biographical, Descriptive, and Critical by Thomas Kelly Cheyne 1893
 
Our Bible and the Ancient Manuscripts: Being a History of the Text by Frederic George Kenyon 1898

The Text of the New Testament by Kirsopp Lake 1908

The Christ of Today by George Angier Gordon 1896
"The higher criticism mutilates our Bible, if the Bible does not witness to something greater than itself. This modern method of investigation comes in the name of pure scholarship, with the authority of historical science, and destroys the letter. If one does not reach the Christ through both Testaments, if one cannot invoke him for the determination of their worth, one must have a horror of the higher criticism."

The Authority of Holy Scripture: An Inaugural Address by Charles Augustus Briggs 1891
"It is just here that the Higher Criticism has proved such a terror in our times. Traditionalists are crying out that it is destroying the Bible, because it is exposing their fallacies and follies. It may be regarded as the certain result of the science of the Higher Criticism that Moses did not write the Pentateuch or Job; Ezra did not write the Chronicles, Ezra, or Nehemiah; Jeremiah did not write the Kings or Lamentations; David did not write the Psalter, but only a few of the Psalms; Solomon did not write the Song of Songs or Ecclesiastes, and only a portion of the Proverbs; Isaiah did not write half of the book that bears his name."

An Introduction to the Literature of the Old Testament by Samuel Rolles Driver 1914

The Life of Jesus, Critically Examined by David Friedrich Strauss - 1892



Prolegomena to the History of Israel: With a Reprint of the Article Israel from the Encyclopedia Brittanica by Julius Wellhausen 1885
"Wellhausen was famous for his critical investigations into Old Testament history and the composition of the Hexateuch, the uncompromising scientific attitude he adopted in testing its problems bringing him into antagonism with the older school of biblical interpreters. He is perhaps most well-known for his Prolegomena zur Geschichte Israels of 1883 (first published 1878 as Geschichte Israels), in which he advanced a definitive formulation of the Documentary hypothesis, arguing that the Torah or Pentateuch had its origins in a redaction of four originally independent texts dating from several centuries after the time of Moses, their traditional author. Wellhausen's hypothesis remained the dominant paradigm for Pentateuchal studies until the last quarter of the 20th century, when it began to be challenged by scholars who saw more and more hands at work in the Torah, ascribing them to periods even later than Wellhausen had proposed."

  1. Subject: Origen on Bible Difficulties

    "In...Book 11,26 Origen includes among the peacemakers those who show
    that what seems the discord of the scriptures is no discord, those
    who make the harmony and peace of scripture evident, whether the
    harmony of Old Testament with New, or of Law with Prophets, or of
    one passage in the Gospels with another, or of one Apostolic writing
    with another. Referring to a text in Ecclesiastes, he speaks of all
    the scriptures being the words of the wise that act like goads, and
    these
    goads are all applied by the one Shepherd, the Word or Logos. He
    then turns to another image, that of the lyre with its different
    strings. Untrained people may think that because the notes are
    different they are discordant; but one trained in the music of God
    knows how to strike the strings in time , now the strings of the Law,
    now harmoniously with them the strings of the Gospel, now the
    strings of Prophecy, and when occasion demands the Apostolic strings
    in harmony with one or the other. For he knows all scripture is the
    one perfect and attuned instrument of God producing from its various
    notes a single sound of salvation for those willing to learn."
