Terry Delaney (Mexico, Missouri) on Christian Book Notes says that Harman writes with ‘great understanding and experience’.

 

Justin McLendon (Phoenix, Arizona) on The Gospel Coalition says that this book ‘will bless those with spiritual appetites to know Jesus in a deeper way’.

 

Tony Reinke (Twin Cities, Minnesota) wrote on his own website – ‘For serious readers of Newton’s letters, the Works is a must-own resourse’.

 

For Bob Thomas (Mitcham, Victoria, Australia) in New Life (December 1, 2015, page 14), Goodwin ‘remains one whose work abides and enriches the soil of faith in the heart and mind of the believer’.

 

Terry Delaney (Mexico, Missouri) ‘cannot recommend it highly enough’ for all those who ‘love the church and love history’ on Christian Book Notes

 

Stephen J. Tracey (Rockport, Maine) on Ordained Servant – ‘Ferguson’s pastoral sense makes this an eminently readable book. His theological skill makes this a profoundly helpful book.’
