OPENING SCRIPTURE: A Hermeneutical Manual Introducing the Exegetical Study of the New Testament
Roger Nicole contends: "It is high time that in the midst of controversies in which all kinds of accusations are leveled against the use of the Old Testament by New Testament authors the painstaking work of Patrick Fairbairn and his monumental scholarship be once again taken into consideration."
Sinclair Ferguson says, "Patrick Fairbairn was one of the brightest stars in the galaxy of brilliant biblical theologians in nineteenth century Scotland. in this valuable but rare book he takes us into his workshop and gives us a 'master-class' on studying the Scriptures. I'M ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THIS REPRINT."
James White adds, "Hermeneutics is the life-blood of solid theology. Sadly, much of what is written today has been compromised by an unbiblical world-view, and therefore leads the student not into a clearer, firmer grasp of the revelation that is God's Word, the Bible, but instead inculcates doubts and hesitations. Hence, in some ways, 'newer is better' does not hold true especially when the 'newer' means 'less rooted in a solid belief in the inspiration and consistency of God's Word.' Fairbairn needs to be studied once again."
Douglas Kelly also says, "Fairbairn was a Scottish Evangelical Scholar with unusual insight on the relationship between the Old and the New Testaments. His work on Typology is still considered a classic. And some of the most recent research on Typological interpretation of the OT and the NT in the last half of the 20th century has confirmed much that Fairbairn was saying 100 years before. His work on Hermeneutics, for that reason alone, will be very valuable."
