For those of you who have followed the interaction regarding Dr. Jaeggli’s book, BJU has now posted a response to the book review by Dr. Shelton Smith. Here is a small excerpt:
Dr. Smith’s review attempts to cast doubt on the linguistic arguments in the book about the use of the Hebrew and Greek words for wine and strong drink by asserting that “other definitive studies” disagree with the author’s conclusions. These sources remain unnamed and uncited, offering no support to justify the reviewer’s claims.
