Praise for the Print Edition

Dr. Sampson adhered in the main to the views he thus expresses of the proper laws of interpretation, and has left a work highly creditable to himself and the Seminary with which he was connected, for its talent and learning, and adapted, from the principles on which it is written, to exert a salutary influence on others who use it as an assistant in the study of the Bible.
