J. M. Cramp was one of the best known and most widely read Canadian Baptist writers in the nineteenth century. Part of this broad readership rests on the sheer volume of his writings. ... Most of his works dealt with controversial or popular topics as he defended: orthodoxy against novelty or liberal theology; Protestantism against “degenerate” Roman Catholicism; and Baptists as the inheritors of the primitive church. His life can be conveniently divided between his years in England before 1844 and his years in Canada until his death in 1881. ...While there is a continuity of style and interests, the apologetic element in his writings require setting them in context. The contemporary reviews of his works were usually complimentary, praising both his accuracy and style. He believed that educated Christians needed to be well versed in correct theology and be knowledgeable in church history if they were to make a difference in their world. --Robert Wilson
