“The Style of the Scriptures, the first of his devotional works, is a remarkable forerunner of modern higher criticism which is said to have begun nearly a century later with Astruc (1753). Boyle compares the Gospels in truly scientific fashion, commenting of various incongruities but emphasizing their essential harmony” - Fulton
