Praise for the Print Edition

A comprehensive and masterly defense of the doctrine of inspiration.

The Evangelical Magazine

It is certainly the best work on the subject which we have as yet met with, and we cannot do a more essential service to the cause of divine revelation than recommend it to the candid and deliberate perusal of all our readers.

Christian Instructor

We can safely say that we have read no piece on the subject which has given us equal satisfaction.

About John Dick

John Dick was born in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1764. He was licensed to preach in 1785, and his community immediately noticed the elegance of his sermons and the eloquence of his delivery. He was soon ordained and appointed to a congregation in the village of Slateford. For 15 years he remained in Slateford, next moving to Glasgow to head another church. In 1815 he received his Doctor of Divinity, and in 1820 he was appointed theological professor to the Associate Synod. He was appointed president of the Auxiliary Bible Society of Glasgow in 1832.
