Excerpt from The Worship of Baalim in Israel: Based Upon the Work of Dr. R. Dozy, 'the Israelites at Mecca'
Human Sacrifice in Israel, pierson, On the Holy Stones in Israel, and' kuenen, On Baal Worship in Israel, - all written in Dutch, a language with which English scholars are not gene rally familiar, though some of the most valuable critical works of the present day, on the Old and New Testaments, are only to be read in Dutch originals. In the course of my own remarks, I have referred occasionally to the above-named writings. But I have felt that I should best serve the interests of Truth, in respect of the cause which I have at heart, and best satisfy the needs and, I trust, also the desires of English students, if I translated one or more of them, with additional notes, either confirming from my own point of view the positions of the writer, or else, where necessary, stating my reasons for dissenting from any of his conclusions.
