A discussion of modem psychiatry and the Bible in the compass of our allotted space cannot pretend to be exhaustive, but must of necessity be a mere sketch, touching here and there the points that seem of special interest for our purpose. We shall, in fact, limit ourselves to the discussion of current technical terms and then, as we proceed, stop to examine some of the problems as they come within the sphere of our observation. The very nature of our subject-matter must preclude any dogmatic statements, except where a statement of Holy Scripture is not concerned; for psychology with its many branches is not by any means a exact science, is constantly in flux, and must always remain experimental.
