Rick Shrader‘s Review:
This reprint of the original four-volume set first published in 1917, has been made available by Baker Books since 2000. I have decided to read these volumes before the end of the year. Many people talk about these writings from which we get our name “Fundamentalists,” but I have wondered how those men actually wrote. One of my impressions after reading the first volume (368 pages of fairly technical material on the failings of modern rationalistic thinking) is that they were not so concerned with finding the lowest common denominator for Christian unity or the five or ten broadest beliefs to use as a doctrinal basis. Rather, these men were vigorously defending Biblical Christianity wherever it was attacked. In Volume one, anyway, the “fundamental” of the faith seemed to be that if we lose any part of our Bible to modernism, we stand to lose Christianity itself.
