A revision of the "Introductory Chapter" to Halyburton's THE GREAT CONCERN OF SALVATION (1721). This modernized presentation is designed for the use of Gospel Ministers, Church Members and Pastor-Search Committees. The emphasis is on the Biblical foundations of the Gospel Ministry along with its spiritual and practical aspects. â€” THOMAS HALYBURTON (1674-1712) was a Scottish pastor and professor of theology in the St. Andrews University; many regarded him "as one of Scotlandâ€™s greatest theologians." He was spoken of most highly by Dr. Archibald Alexander, the first professor and long-time president of Princeton Theological Seminary. Though he died relatively young, the "Memoirs" of his life have often been reprinted and have influenced countless numbers of Christians worldwide to the present day. â€” It is hoped that the truths and principles which Halyburton expounds from the Apostle Peterâ€™s ministry to the house of Cornelius, recorded in Acts 10, will be profitable to all of Godâ€™s people in defining GODâ€™S design for a Biblical Gospel Ministry. Churches in the position of seeking a pastor would do well to consider these wise remarks by a man upon whom the hand of the Lord was so obvious. Ministers of all ages, positions and conditions who will prayerfully consider the counsel found here, cannot but find challenge, rebuke and encouragement. â€” Click the WEB LINK below to get your FREE copy!
