Sprinkle Publications

Dagg's view of Christian Evidences is anchored in the reservoir of truth the Bible. As one reads the words flowing from the pen of this Southern theologian it becomes obvious that his studies were exceptionally broad. He had a grasp historically and philosophically of the major views and yet one is not burdened with technicalities. His knowledge of the literature in the field was extensive. he was a very learned man. The volume is smooth in its readability. Dagg is the kind of writer that you wish wrote more, more often and longer books. - From the Foreword
