"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

Editorial Reviews


In the following pages Dr. Aston has rendered a great service to Christian believers. With scholarship and reverence he has challenged the validity of some current interpretations of the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah and has given us an able defence of the earliest Christian understanding of this chapter. To the question, who is the Suffering Servant? , the Apostolic Church answered, Jesus Christ . Jesus Himself seems to have been convinced that He was the Servant. He declared that the words, And was numbered among rebels (Isaiah 53:12), must be accomplished in Him (Luke 22:37). After reading Isaiah 61:1-2 in the synagogue at Nazareth, He said, This day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears (Luke 4:21). His answer to the disciples of John the Baptist (Luke 7:22) is also significant in this connection. The Apostolic Church expressed itself in no uncertain terms. Philip explained to the Ethiopian eunuch of Queen Candace the meaning of Isaiah 53:7-8 (Acts 8:32-35). In Hebrews 9:28 we read, So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many (see Isaiah 53:4-6). Even more explicitly, 1 Peter 2:22-25 echoes Isaiah 53 and applies it to Jesus Christ. It is good for our souls to return to the sources of our Christian faith and to renew our faith in our Saviour, who is verily pierced for our revolt , crushed for our iniquities , and is wounded for our salvation .

We would commend the careful consideration of this publication to everyone who is truly desirous to arrive at the truth in regard to the most serious and important of all subjects, which is here dealt with. By being instructed in science, we could add nothing to the scholarship we find here, by commending it; but scientific training gives competence in following logical reasoning, and to this we give our endorsement. For this pamphlet places in a clear light the greatest moral problem in the universe, namely, how is it that God, when He is just and righteous, can rectify the sinner; and an answer is found by seeking the solution as revealed in the Scriptures. There are many who make it their boast that they are rationalists, and will not accept anything contrary to reason. They turn from religion, because they think that it requires them to accept much on faith, which is not reasonable. But when we turn to the great central question which is here discussed, can we suppose that the Judge of all the Earth would do anything irrational? Where then is a solution to be found which does not subvert the attributes of God? For He cannot set aside His justice, so that in His mercy He may pass over our wrong-doing. How we are to be forgiven, we can only hope to know, therefore, by carefully considering what the Lord God has Himself revealed to us, for He only can find the wondrous way. All philosophies of men to account for sin and evil, and their devices in dealing with it, lead to impossibilities, or, in the end, subvert morality itself. It is the human way which is irrational. But as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are God s ways higher than our ways, and His thoughts than our thoughts. Let us therefore, look into the Scriptures, to see the way in which the Lord has guided the Hebrew people of old, by the object-lessons of the sacrifices, and by the teaching of the prophets, to prepare their minds to understand His ways of atonement for sin, thus showing the need for an actual fulfilment as the highest work of the Messiah. It is this which is set forth and explained from the Scriptures in the discussion before us. As it is a matter which vitally concerns us all, may it be read with an honest and true heart, and the desire to perceive the truth. W.
