Alexander Vinet (1797-1847) was one of the most prominent theological thinkers of 19th century French-speaking Reformed Protestantism, and seen by most scholars as a pastor’s pastor. To sum up... More > this work is to say with Vinet, “The minister’s life is a life of consecration, without which it has no meaning.” Vinet covers all of Pastoral Theology, focusing in on all the major tenants of the office of the herald sent of God. The steward of the mysteries of God is sent to preach and to pray, and these two main functions are broken down by Vinet into a full-orbed look at pastoral theology covering everything from what a minister is, to the necessity of the Evangelical Ministry, the call to the Evangelical Ministry, and the domestic life of the minister.

Paperback: $13.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Thomas Hodges (1600-1672) was a fiery puritan, a Covenanter, a dedicated minister of the Gospel and an active member of the Westminster Assembly. From 2 Peter 2:2, “And many shall follow their... More > pernicious ways, by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of,” Hodges skillfully and biblically explains the growth of heresy and its nature in relation to the church. He shows how all professing Christians ought to hold steadfastly to the truth, no matter what “new light” is introduced to them, and instead, desire the old paths of God’s infallible word. Hodges further exhorts the reader to battle heresy by getting their minds furnished with saving, wholesome fundamental principles of religion, which are only found in truth’s record, which is the Word of God.
