“The work consists of a series of short studies on selected texts from the Old Testament and the New. The studies are not mere skeletons; but, first of all, thorough expositions of the text, in clear and forcible language…It is not merely a book of hints and catch-words, but it is a book developed thoughts and hints suggestive of further thought, and practical application of the truth expounded.” – Sunday at Home Magazine
“It is full of thought, and sets themes before the reader in the best manner, helping and compelling him to think.” – Charles Spurgeon
