"Dr. Campbell sheds light on a number of issues: the often complex relationship between scholarship and ecclesiastical commitment; the subtle nature of the negotiation between higher criticism and confessionalism in church life; the response of the church to the social and cultural upheavals of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; and the perennially vexatious question of the relationship between heartfelt piety and hard-headed theological work."
--Carl R. Trueman, Westminster Theological Seminary
"lain Campbell's compelling study assesses the life and contributions of the remarkable George Adam Smith who, in one handsome countenance, united the warm heart of a village vicar, the razor sharp mind of a world-class critical scholar, the interpersonal skill and grace of a diplomat, the zeal of an evangelist. Reading this story, one is moved to pray for another cycle of such 'Princes of the Church' to arise in our own day!"
--Thomas R. Corts, Samford University
"We have long needed an intellectual biography of George Adam Smith, a hugely influential figure in church and academy from the 1880s to the 1930s. In this revision of Dr. Campbell's PhD thesis, a vital part of the history of biblical scholarship in Scotland has at last been told."
