Jarl brings a high level of biblical scholarship and a mastery of the finer points of the English language to bear on his editorial work. I would guess that Jarl has edited more than a score of books for Kregel Publications, and the result has always been of the highest quality. I highly recommend his work.

I highly recommend Jarl Waggoner as a book editor. He did an outstanding job on my latest book, Jesus Christ: Our Intelligent Designer. His skills are very high--and his cost very low!

Especially to Jarl Waggoner I owe a special debt of gratitude. [He] meticulously checked my manuscript, offered valuable suggestions, and corrected my mistakes, while allowing me the freedom to express my viewpoints.

John McRay, author of

Paul: His Life and Teaching (Baker)



Jarl, I want to thank you for your excellent editorial work on my book. As you know, I examined samples of the editorial work of three outstanding professionals, all of whom have been in the field for decades. After the review I selected you and am thrilled that I did. You are both thorough in your execution and timely in your response. Your humble servant's attitude has made this entire experience a pleasure. I know for a fact that whatever merit my book has, you improved it. I commend you to anyone who needs an experienced, knowledgeable editor.

Ken Newberger, Ph.D., author of

Hope in the Face of Conflict (Xulon Press).



Profound thanks go to . . .  Jarl Waggoner, our editor, whose keen eye made the manuscript cleaner and clearer.

Authors of Reinventing Jesus (Kregel Publications)



I can’t say enough good things about Jarl Waggoner, who did the final copyedit on the book.  Jarl took my writing, which came in the form of reverse Polish notation from me as a math major, and turned it into plain English readable by normal human beings. Thanks so much, Jarl.  You did a fabulous job.
