"...a feast, both appetising & satisying, of contemporary reflection on the Presbyterian & Reformed heritage. Articles from a galaxy of scholars lead us into matters historical, theological, homiletical & pastoral"
"Festschrifts usually suffer from lack of cohesion and variable quality. This work doesn't, and in fact provides an excellent introduction to the Reformed Heritage especially for readers who are not part of that tradition."
"Anyone concerned to understand and to maintain the heritage of conservative Reformed Christianity will find many engaging essays that fit their interests."
"A marvellous collection of superb essays by some of the leading scholars of the Reformed tradition. Here is scolarship and pastoral theoloogy at its best - both done in the service of the church."
