"As one of the few surviving founders and charter members of the Evangelical Theological Society, it gives me great pleasure to recommend Quo Vadis, Evangelicalism? I hope this will help others to understand our stance and help us by the grace of God to fulfill our aims, to the glory of God."
—Roger Nicole, ETS Co-founder and its Seventh President
"This is a valuable history. But more than that, it shows just how difficult it is to preserve Christian orthodoxy, constantly beset as it is by questions, challenges, and perplexities. This calls for fidelity and wisdom, and these presidents showed that they had what was needed."
—David F. Wells, distinguished senior research professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; author, The Courage to Be Protestant: Truth-Lovers, Marketers and Emergents in the Postmodern World
"John Stott once defined evangelicals as Bible people and gospel people. This anthology of ETS presidential addresses shows how these two lodestars-an unswerving commitment to the totally truthful Word of God written and the transforming message through the living Word of God, Jesus Christ-have guided the evangelical academy for the past half century."
—Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School; General Editor, Reformation Commentary on Scripture
"During its almost sixty years of life, the Evangelical Theological Society has grown in numbers and in intellectual vitality, spiritual vision, and a strategic sense of mission to the wider church and the still wider world. This selection, ranging from the bright to the brilliant, celebrates and will surely further the Society's ongoing progress."
—J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College
"For those who think evangelical Christians are intellectually blinkered when they uphold the infallibility or inerrancy of Holy Scripture, this book should give genuine pause. It constitutes a veritable treasure trove of insights and reflections upon the meaning, import, and biblical warrant of the doctrine."
—John D. Woodbridge, Research Professor, Church History and History of Christian Thought, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"These valuable essays recall the past, situate the present, and project the future of the Evangelical Theological Society and related institutions. They will help immensely in keeping a clear head and calm spirit about us as we move, as it seems, into times that are fraught with peril yet rich in promise."
—Robert W. Yarbrough, professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary
