THE HISTORY OF THE TE LOST TRIBES.AGLO-ISRAELISM EXAMIEDBY DAVID BAROPREFACEA FEW words of explanation are needed by way of preface to this little book. More than twentyyears ago, being often appealed to by friends for my judgment on Anglo-Israelism, or to answer questionswhich were addressed to me on this subject, I finally,after making myself acquainted with the positionsand arguments by which the theory is supported, drewup a statement in the form of " A Letter to an Inquirer."This " Letter," somewhat amplified, was printed in theform of an appendix in my book, " The Ancient Scrip-tures and the Modern Jew," whence by special requestit was subsequently reprinted in pamphlet form underthe title, " Anglo-Israelism, and the True History of the Ten Lost Tribes " — a separate edition of it havingalso been published in America. This pamphlet is nowout of print, and, being appealed to by prominentChristian friends to bring out a new edition, I feltconstrained before doing so to re-examine the wholequestion anew, and more thoroughly than before. Tothis end I have read through, with much inward painI must confess, a number of the more recent Anglo- (or" British ") -Israel publications, which for the mostpart are mere repetitions of one another. The resultis the treatise now in the reader's hands, which will befound to consist of three Parts.In Part I. I have dealt with Anglo-Israel assertionsand claims, and the arguments by which they are sup-ported ; in Part II., which is constructive in its
character, and in which the greater part of my original" Letter to an Inquirer " will be found embodied, I havetried briefly to trace the true history of the supposedLost Tribes ; and in Part III., which is altogether new,iv PREFACEI have further analysed some of the scriptural " proofs "of a separate fate and destiny of the Ten Tribes fromthat of " Judah," and have added notes and explana-tions on some of the more plausible points brought upby all Anglo- Israelite writers.The epistolary form, which is retained in Parts I.and II., is accounted for by the relation of this newbooklet to the original " Letter to an Inquirer," whichis embodied in it.Let me ask the reader's Christian forbearance for anyexpressions in this little work which may be regardedas too severe. I would only say that if the unbiassedreader had had to wade through the amount of Anglo-Israel literature, with all its fearful perversions of Scripture and history, which the writer has had to doin the course of the preparation of this little work, hewould most probably have felt as he did — the difficultyof putting a restraint upon his spirit so as not to usemuch stronger language. Toward the persons of thepropagandists of this theory I have, I trust, no otherfeelings than those of Christian charity ; but the theoryitself I cannot help regarding, after a close study of itsprinciples, as subversive of the truth, and as one of thedangerous delusions of these latter days.After this little book was finished, an honoured friendin Brighton sent me the article by the late Dr. HoratiusBonar, which appeared in The Sunday at Home in 1880.I add it, with the permission of the proprietors of that
magazine, as an appendix in the assurance that the testi-mony on the subject of so honoured and eminent aservant of God will be welcomed and carry weight withmany.October, 1915.
