"Dr. Barker is a first-rate church historian, and his considerable theological skills are on open display in this welcome collection of his writings. His generous spirit, powerful mind and pastoral heart are productive of theological discourse that is a model, in both tone and content, for reformed ministers and scholars as we engage with a hostile postmodern culture." (Ligon Duncan ~ Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary)
'A gathering of writings from different places and eras of a person's life can sometimes be eclectic, disjointed and discordant; but not so this particular collection.... We all have much to learn from the past, and Professor Barker is a helpful guide in that enterprise..' (Iain D. Campbell ~ (1953-2017) Minister, Point Free Church of Scotland, Isle of Lewis)
'The publication of Word to the World is a cause for rejoicing. The book is marked by both variety and constancy. Running through all this variety, though, are certain constants: good writing; a combination of forthrightness and fairness; prudence and much wise counsel; a reverent, even worshipful, tone; and above all, the fruitfulness of a mind and heart devoted to the Bible. Indeed, Will Barker's attitude toward and use of the Bible in this collection makes one think of the good old biblical name that we used to use for the Word of God-the Holy Scriptures (2 Tim 3:15).' (Robert A. Peterson ~ Professor of Systematic Theology, Covenant Theological Seminary, St Louis, Missouri)
