"Glen Scorgie's pioneer study of Orr as a theologian is a work long overdue. Scorgie's fascinating narrative makes plain the real distinction of Orr's mind. The present-day resurgence of the convictions that Orr championed suggests that in calling for continuity and combating theological novelty Orr had found the way of wisdom. . . . This book rehabilitates the doughty Glasgow professor as a thinker still to be reckoned with by those who care for Christian truth." -- J. I . Packer Regent College
