Teachers World 'in this splendid little book he makes the very most of information which is often extremely seamy, and shows a nice judgment in calling discreetly on the aid of legend, as at least an indication of the impression dman made on others, when history is silent. Preachers will find these chapters most useful, as indeed will all students of the New Testament.' Church Times'
