This is actually a series of lectures given by B. Having grown up with a charismatic background, I enjoyed the depth of detail in this book. Overall, although the language is a bit ponderous and careful, but a readable work and not dull at all, especially when in the course of prodding through these difficult matters, one would be occasionally treated to some snide humour and wit.
The last section on the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy of the Christian Science movement was especially interesting to me, though it was all informative.
Every time I read him I am impressed with his scholarship, his grasp of the field he is currently looking at, and the clarity with which he presents himself. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

But I guess the most important thing which this book has taught me is the true rational behind the cessation of miracles and sign and wonders, that miracles intricately and indissolubly tied to divine revelation and apostolic authority as their proper signs, and that naturally once the apostles died and divine revelation has ceased, so would the miracles which were the signs and confirmation of their message.

Don Bryant rated it liked it Oct 14, Trivia About Counterfeit Miracles. Warfield refutes mkracles theory by noting that factually this is most certainly false as an examination of the apostolic fathers revealed that miracles far from increasing actually completely ceased with the apostles.
Thus, only the apostles could grant the power to perform miracles upon their disciples as a sign and confirmation of the divine revelation to which they have been entrusted and to their apostleship.
