Reading Experience:

'Amongst others, I have had Keith on the Evidences of Prophecy put into my hands, and a most masterly and striking performance it is. Totally dissimilar from Newton on the Prophecies, an excellent book, but not in any degree equal in force or in ability to the work in question, which has already gone through thirteen editions'.
