"In calling new scholars to worship God in their studiesand not to worship their studies in the name of Godthe authors paint a glorious picture of the redeemed Bible scholar, dependent on grace and enslaved only to the benevolent King of kings. We need more Bible scholars. But especially, we need more Bible scholars like this."-- Peter Krol, Bible Study Magazine
