Roger Nicole: "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." 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."
