Endorsements & Reviews-

"...[T]he question of authority, which in its religious form, is the first and last issue of life. It is indeed a question of Lordship. As soon as the problem of authority really lifts its head, all others fall to the rear....The conviction in these pages is that the principle of authority is ultimately the whole religious question."
--from the author's Preface

Bio(s)-

Peter Taylor Forsyth (1848-1921) preached and pastored for twenty five years before becoming principal of Hackney College in London where he taught systematic theology and preaching. Forsyth converted from theological liberalism to classical Christianity in the mid-1880s. The theological transition was, in his own words, "from a lover of love to an object of grace." A theologian of the cross, Forsyth is well known for his publications The Work of Christ, Cruciality of the Cross, and The Person and Place of Jesus Christ.
