Vincent’s writing is academic yet highly readable, perfect for students, pastors, and anyone wanting an introduction to Biblical criticism and practical application of Scripture. That Monster, the Higher Critic contains pages of Biblical scholarship and exegesis. With the Logos edition, all Scripture references link to the other resources in your library, making study and research effortless.
