He takes out of the old narratives their universal human elements and clothes them for modern use; he emphasizes the spiritual and minimizes the physical in any historical event, being anxious to get the inner meaning and caring but little for the form in which that meaning is held; he not only shows that a certain significance is in the narrative, but that it belongs there. The great truths thus discovered in what might seem to some a hard, mechanical, and not altogether trustworthy narrative assume such wide-reaching importance that we no longer trouble ourselves about the peculiar setting in which they are found. The most artificial events seem in his hands quite natural and in thorough accord with human nature.
There is nothing of the dogmatist in Dr. Dodds. His thought is vigorous and striking ; his spiritual insight fine, and his religious and moral purpose exalted.
