Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The way in which the author is arguing, is a joy in reading. His preference is to work bottom-up from the study of details to more general views, which prevents many problems which could arise after making bold conjectures without a thorough foundation in facts. And his way of reasoning is marked by sound logic which gives trust to the reader.'
Dr Boudewijn Koole, reviewer, theologian, philosopher, 2006.
