Editorial Reviews

Rodney Clapp
[Dorrien] has been paying serious attention to evangelicalism for some time, as is obvious from his detailed and clear-eyed reading....[I]n Dorrien's words, "If the quest for [this] kind of orthodoxy...is to be fulfilled in the churches and seminaries of a new century, the evangelicals need to pay a significant role in bringing it about.
Books & Culture: A Christian Review
John H. Armstrong
Do not miss Dorrien's careful, critical, and sympathetic work…You will be hard pressed to find a better and fairer treatment of the issue of the issue of biblical authority as set forth by twentieth-century evangelical theologians.
