Still on the theology slant, I managed to find 'Introduction to the Study of the Gospels' by B. F. Westcott published 1888. Westcott was a member of the Cambridge triumverate, a highly competent Biblical scholar he was involved in the Revised Version of the Bible.

He has a wonderful image in his preface about truth:

"The winged word leaves it trace, though the first effect may be, in the old Hebrew image, transient as the shadow of a flying bird."

I love that idea. Truth is something that has to be searched for like the shadow of a flying bird. The same could be said for all truth.
