Excerpt from The Life and Teachings of Jesus

Why should I attempt to write the life of the Master? Other pens more deft than mine have left their tracings of him, from the shrine of the manger around which angels sang "Glory to God on High," through his trials, tribulations, sorrows, and triumphs, culminating on the Cross and glorified in his ascension as he looked from the throne of love upon those who maligned his mission and persecuted and crucified his body for no cause save that of his unbounded goodness.

Pens endowed with the flame of inspiration have done him justice. The Gospels are in the home of every one, in which the physical life of Jesus is graphically given, and it would be presumptuous in me to attempt to improve on the least of them. The Gospels contain a plain, simple narration of facts that can neither be bettered in the manner of expression, sublime simplicity of style, or order of presentation. Each important occurrence in the life of the Master has been given to the world time and time again, and every phase of his life brought out and explained so that the erudite may be edified, the student instructed, the sorrowing consoled, the devotee strengthened, and the stupid enlightened.

So it would seem an act of superciliousness in anyone to attempt to do more.
