“In this scholarly collection of essays dealing with the Anabaptists, who are clearly spiritual kin to modern-day Baptists in certain key areas, the life and witness of Dr. Paige Patterson is rightly honored. It is appropriate that the essays deal with the Anabaptists, for Dr. Patterson has been ardent in his promotion of the reading of and about these followers of the Lord Jesus, confident that they have much to teach contemporary Baptists and indeed all Christians. And like those radical disciples of the sixteenth century, Dr. Patterson has sought to be passionately loyal to his Lord in our day—and for that passion and loyalty, there are many, like myself, who are deeply and eternally grateful.”—Michael A. G. Haykin
This first volume in the series contains a commentary on each of the four Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles that features apologetics-focused analysis and exposition of biblical passages in which apologetics issues arise. Criticisms of the text are answered. Positive proofs are brought to light. And readers are educated in the basic issues of New Testament literature and composition that will help clear away some of the apparent difficulties in the New Testament text.
