FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1951 Seven Years of Study Sheds New Light on Bible; Findings Published NEW YORK, Sept. 14. (AP)—VVhat new light has modern investigation and study shed on the Bible? For seven years, 146 leading Protestant theologians and ministers in this country and abroad have been compiling data to answer this question. Last night, they 'issued the first* • of a 12-volurne series detailing the BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Rev. Georc* McGheber. p»tor Bob McHaffey, Church School Superintendent,' P. B.

Some 200 religious leaders and educators last night attendee! a dinner for presentation of the initial volume. "Unquestionably this is the most important publication in the religious field for over half a century," said Dr. Ilalford Luccock, a top Biblical scholar, of Yale Divinity School. "A magnificent achievement," said Methodist Bishop G. Bromley Oxnam. The new work, said Dr. Samuel McCrea Cavert, executive secretary of the 'National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U. S. A., "will help keep scholarship from being sterile and preaching from being superficial." $1,000,000 Spent on Job About $1,000.000 has been poured into the job of research and assembling material. With encyclopedic detail, the discoveries of archeological excavations, new-found manuscripts and historical and geographical research are presented concerning each Bible verse. Such questions as these are answered: Who wrote this book of the Bible? When was it written? Where? Under what conditions and in the midst of what circumstances? ^Lpr. George. A. .Butrick, pastor of •lew York City's Madison Avenue 'Church, heads the staff of theolo- • gians and preachers of more than i score of denominations who have worked on the project. Both Versions Shown In the series, both King James and revised standard translations of each verse are shown in adjoining columns. Below this appear brief exegeses (explanations) telling what nas been learned about each verse. For example, when Jesus began teaching in the synagogues, the accompanying exegeses tells how such activity in those days was 'open to any laymen competent to carry it on Or, when King. Herod ordered all children under two slain in an attempt to get rid of the infant Christ, the exegesis describes Herod's . policy of murdering political foes.

Y., Sept. 14.: W>--Secretary-General Trygve Lie and some high U. N. officials have become cool toward opening a room for prayer and meditation in the U.N. headquarters, a responsible source at the U.N. said today. As a result, this source added, there is a strong possibility such a room might not be available, despite Lie's announced plan for it. There is no indication when a final decision will be made, but it has been decided definitely not to open a prayer or meditation .room In the 38-story secretariat building. That structure, the only one of the new U. N. buildings now in use. has been closed to the public and will be used only as a work shop for the U.N. Lie Vwrinic Away Lie had been expected to arrange a room for prayer and meditation in the General Assembly building, which is to be completed in 1952. It was said however, that he is veering away from the idea and may not carry It out. ' Lie was not available for comment. There is a struggle in the U. N. inner circles about the prayer room, ii, was reported. Persons supporting the project argue that the U. N. is setting up an elaborate place for a bar for the delegates in the Security Coun- area, with a view overlooking the East River. These persons contend that the U. N. also can ftir- lish people, delegates and secrelar- iata place to pray or mediate. Opponents' of the plan answer that only a small group of Protestants appear to want such a prayer Minister Still HoldingChurch At Age,of 93 WASHINGTON, Ark..
