1. The Work Of The Ministry By W. H. Griffith Thomas (PDF)

The Work of the Ministry, perhaps Griffith Thomas’ greatest book. The substance of that book was delivered as lectures at Wycliffe Hall.

Excerpt from a biographer:

His addresses on Pastoralia, in view of his varied experiences in different spheres and his wide reading, must have been specially helpful. Much of what he then gave was reproduced later in The Work of the Ministry. The second part on Preaching is unrivalled in its grasp of the subject and its suggestiveness. “Think yourself empty, read yourself full, write yourself clear, pray yourself keen—then enter the pulpit and let yourself go!” It would be hard to better that as a general counsel.

Delivered as an address at the Autumn Conference at Princeton Theological Seminary on October 4, 1911. Dr. Warfield shows the importance for those preparing for the ministry to grow both as scholars and as people of God. (15 Pages)

Review:

In his address called The Religious Life of Theological Students, delivered at Princeton Theological Seminary on the 4th of October 1911, Benjamin B. Warfield stressed the need for servants of God to be both learned and religious. The man without learning, Warfield noted, no matter with what other gifts he may be endowed, is unfit for his duties. Because he was addressing students in particular, the burden of his lecture was on their “religious” or spiritual life—that is, Warfield was warning these students about the dangers of studying apart from worship, of seeking knowledge apart from godliness. Severing knowledge and godliness is indeed perilous to the soul. Apart from godliness, knowledge merely puffs up into vanity and pride; apart from knowledge, godliness proves thin and unstable, tossing one about by every wind of doctrine.

Dr. L. Michael Morales, Reformation Bible College
