A critique of the book, The Stone-
A Personal Testimony
“If anyone had a greater influence on me in Bible College than Dr. James Smith it was Dr. Roger Chambers. He died prematurely (age 42?) in his sleep of a congenital heart defect on 8/8/88 at Hillsborough family camp. With a doctorate in history and human anthropology he was a great one to debate the evolutionists in public forums and in his writings. He was brilliant, incisive, compelling and inspiring. After speaking for two years in a row at the state men's retreat in Lake Aurora Florida there was a move to make him the PERMANENT speaker. He had a way of connecting with men, especially. I've never heard anyone quite like Roger Chambers. Jack Cottrel comes closest I suppose but doesn't have Roger's wit, humor or charisma, and, I have much respect for Dr. Jack Cottrel.”
