Reading Experience:

Evidence:
George Grote to G. C. Lewis, 6 November 1862: 'I suppose you have read Colenso's book. It is certainly singular to see a bishop applying the historical principles of Sir George Lewis to the narrative of the Old Testament [...] Among the most interesting parts of the book are the extracts given from the most orthodox expositors: the artifices by which they slur over or blot out contradictions.'
