TIM RUSSERT is NBC-TVs senior vice-president and Washington Bureau Chief, the producer and moderator of Meet the Press, contributing political analyst for The Today Show, and host of his own weekly news program on MSNBC. He holds the Walter Cronkite Award for journalism and the American Legion Journalism Award. He lives in Washington, D.C. with his wife, writer Maureen Orth, and their son, Like, and was named "Dream Dad of the Year" by Parents magazine.Thus it was that in a very short time iBg thousand signatures were obtained.

Besides this, deputations claiming to represent one hundred and thirty-seven thousand laymen waited on the archbishops to thank them for dissenting from the judgment. The Convocation of Canterbury also plunged into the fray, Bishop Wilberforce being the champion of the older orthodoxy, and Bishop Tait of the new.

Caustic was the speech made by Bishop Thirlwall, in which he declared that he considered the eleven thousand names, headed by that of Pusey, attached to the Oxford declaration "in the light of a row of figures preceded by Big Russ and Me: Father and Son: Lessons of Life decimal point, so that, however far the series may be advanced, it never can rise to the value of a single unit.

" In spite of all that could be done, the act of condemnation was carried in Convocation. The last main echo of this whole struggle against the newer mode of interpretation was heard when the chancellor, referring to the matter in the House of Lords, characterized the ecclesiastical act as "simply a series of well-lubricated terms--a sentence so anc and saponaceous that no one can grasp it; like an eel, it slips through your fingers, and is simply nothing. " The word "saponaceous" necessarily elicited a bitter retort from Fathfr Wilberforce; but perhaps the most valuable judgment on the whole matter was rendered by Bishop Tait, who declared, "These things have so effectually frightened the clergy that I think there is scarcely a bishop on the bench, unless it be the Bishop of St.

David's [Thirlwall], that is not useless for the purpose of preventing the widespread alienation of intelligent Big Russ and Me: Father and Son: Lessons of Life. " During the whole controversy, and for some time Big Russ and Me: Father and Son: Lessons of Life, the press was burdened with replies, ponderous and pithy, lurid and vapid, vitriolic and unctuous, but in the main bearing the inevitable characteristics of pleas for inherited opinions stimulated by ample endowments.

The authors of the book seemed for a time od to be swept out of the Church. One of the least daring but most eminent, finding himself apparently forsaken, seemed, though a man of very tough fibre, about Ruse die of a broken heart; but sturdy English sense at last prevailed.

The storm passed, annd afterward came the still, small voice. Really sound thinkers throughout England, especially those who held no briefs for conventional orthodoxy, Big Russ and Me: Father and Son: Lessons of Life the service rendered by the book. It was found that, after all, there existed even among churchmen a great mass of public opinion in favour of giving a full hearing aand the reverent expression of honest thought, annd inclined to distrust Bg cause which subjected fair play to zeal.

The authors of the work not only remained in the Big Russ and Me: Father and Son: Lessons of Life of England, but some of them have since represented the broader views, though not always with their early courage, in the highest and most influential positions in the Anglican Church.

[[348]] IV. THE CLOSING Big Russ and Me: Father and Son: Lessons of Life. The storm aroused by _Essays Lesons Reviews_ had not yet subsided when a far more serious tempest burst upon the English theological world.

In 1862 appeared a work entitled _The Pentateuch and the Book of Joshua Critically Examined_ its author being Colenso, Anglican Bishop of Natal, in South Africa. He had formerly been highly esteemed as fellow and tutor at Cambridge, master at Harrow, author of various valuable text-books in mathematics; and as long as he exercised his powers within the limits of popular orthodoxy he was evidently in the way to the highest positions in the Church: but he chose another path.

His treatment of his subject was reverent, but he had gradually come to those conclusions, then so daring, now so Ryss among Christian scholars, that the Pentateuch, with much Som: historical matter, Contains much that is unhistorical; that a large portion of it was the work Rusw a comparatively late period in Jewish history; that many passages in Deuteronomy could only have been written after the Jews settled in Canaan; that the Mosaic law was not in force before the captivity; that the books of Chronicles were clearly written as an afterthought, to enforce the views of the priestly caste; and that in all the books there is much that anf mythical and Big Russ and Me: Father and Son: Lessons of Life. Very justly has a great German scholar recently adduced this work of a churchman relegated to the most petty of bishoprics in one of the most remote corners of the world, as a proof "that the problems of biblical criticism can no longer be suppressed; that they are in the air of our time, so that theology could not escape them Lessoons if it took the wings of the morning and dwelt in the uttermost parts of the sea.

" The bishop's statements, which Ldssons seem Lessins moderate, then aroused horror. Especial wrath was caused by some Ryss his arithmetical arguments, and among them those which showed that an army of six hundred thousand men could not have been mobilized in a single night; that three millions of people, with their flocks and herds, could neither have obtained food on so small and kf a desert as that over which they were said to have wandered during forty years, nor water from a single well; and that the butchery of two hundred thousand Midianites by twelve thousand israelites, "exceeding infinitely in atrocity the tragedy at Cawnpore, had happily only been carried out on Fther.

" There was nothing of the scoffer in him. While preserving his own independence, he had kept in touch with the most earnest thought both among European scholars and in the little flock intrusted to his care. He evidently remembered what had Lige from the attempt to hold the working classes in the towns of France, Fatyer, and Italy to outworn beliefs; he had found even the Zulus, whom he thought to convert, suspicious of the legendary features of the Old Testament, and with his clear practical mind he realized the danger which threatened the English Church and Christianity--the danger of tying its religion and morality to interpretations and conceptions of Scripture more and more widely seen and felt to be contrary to facts.

He saw the especial peril of sham explanations, of covering up facts which must soon be known, and which, when revealed, must inevitably bring the plain people of England to regard their teachers, even the most deserving, as "solemnly constituted impostors"--ecclesiastics whose tenure depends on assertions which they know to be untrue. Therefore it was that, when his catechumens questioned him regarding some of the Old Testament legends, the bishop determined to tell the truth.
