Review

James Garretson's An Able and Faithful Ministry: Samuel Miller and the Pastoral Office enhances the growing study of Old Princeton by bringing to our attention Samuel Miller's contributions to theological education. His courses Composition and Delivery of Sermons and Pastoral Care show how Miller and his colleagues construed pastoral ministry as a spiritual calling. With ample illustrations, Miller unfolds the ministry's Grand Design as preaching the Gospel. His detailed lectures on sermon content and delivery focused on careful explication of the text and applying the truth of the Bible to daily life. Garretson thereby demonstrates Princeton s view of Christian ministry before it was professionalized in the twentieth century. --W. Andrew Hoffecker, emeritus professor of church history, Reformed Theological Seminary,Jackson, Mississippi

There is much debate today about exactly what the pastoral ministry should look like, what its priorities should be, what the tools of its trade are, and what kind of man should hold it. Once again, Jim Garretson has enriched the literature on this topic by opening up the world of the Old Princetonians for us. This book is not only a moving portrait of one of the great nineteenth-century Presbyterian pastors and thinkers but also a stimulus to practical reflection on how the traditional ordinary-means-of-grace model of church and pastor can be applied today. A wonderful volume. --Carl Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History,Westminster Theological Seminary

James M. Garretson's book on Samuel Miller and his teaching on the pastoral office brings one of the founding fathers of American Presbyterianism back to life. Herein, Miller enriches us with his piety, guides us with his wisdom, and equips us to be more able and faithful preachers of God s Holy Word. This study will clarify your call to gospel service or serve as a refresher course on the godly practice of Reformed ministry. --Peter A. Lillback, president, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

From the Inside Flap

"Samuel Miller (1769 1850) played an integral part in founding Princeton Theological Seminary, which became one of the most influential training grounds for Presbyterian ministers in the nineteenth century. While Miller is most commonly remembered for his writings on church office, he also played a significant role instructing students and shaping their theology of preaching and pastoral ministry. In the present volume, Jim Garretson highlights the narrative of Miller's life and the major ministerial emphases found in his published writings, sermons, and unpublished lecture notes. As a result, readers will come to know the spiritual convictions of Miller's heart and understand the theology of ministry he imparted over the course of his lifetime.
