His bold and original methods of criticism of the Scriptures wrought a revolution in Biblical criticism.

He published a second edition of this work, also De Godsdienst van Israel tot den Ondergmg van den Joodschen Staat (translated into English), and Be Profeten en de Profetie onder Israel. He also wrote many articles and lectures on national and universal religions.
