The Right and Wrong Uses of the Bible
by R. Heber Newton (Episcopal)
Richard Heber Newton (31 October 1840)
In 1883 he was accused of heresy for a series of sermons later published in a book, The Right and Wrong Uses of the Bible. He was again accused in 1884 and 1891 but the bishop, Henry Codman Potter, refused to go forward.
In 1903 he briefly served as first and last pastor of Stanford Memorial Church at Stanford University.
Note, in these sermons, Newton presents the typical neo-evangelical view of the Bible “containing the Word of God”, not wholly being the Word of God. This is his presentation of his position in the matter.
