Preachers, Pastors, and Ambassadors: Puritan Wisdom for Today's Church
DescriptionPuritan ministers saw themselves as ambassadors for God, called to proclaim his word and shepherd his people. They sought to pastor and lead people through the word clearly preached and the sacraments rightly administered, and by means of a godly church discipline. In this second compilation of recent St. Antholin's Lectures we see and hear the Puritans in action, and are encouraged to apply their godly wisdom in our own day.
