"Dickson's work has a continuing relevance for today's church and its leaders. Both teaching and ruling elders will benefit from this excellent work, and the whole church will be nurtured and strengthened." --J. Stafford Carson
"Though this book was written by a Scottish ruling elder over 150 years ago, Dickson sets forth the framework for the ruling elder in shepherding God's flock. Rediscovering these biblical principles and practicing them would impact today's church." --Charles Dunahoo
"Phil Ryken and George McFarland have served us well by bringing this classic on the shepherding ministry of elders up-to-date and back into print. The thoughtful tone of this work is convicting, encouraging us to be the shepherds God has raised up for the good of His flock and the glory of His name. I can't wait to use this with our own elders!" --Mark Dever
About the Author
David Dickson was an elder in nineteenth-century Scotland. At the age of thirty, he was ordained as an elder in the Free New North Church, and he served as clerk of session for thirty-three years. His practical experiences as an elder led him to publish The Elder and His Work.

I must say this. It is not the same edition as the P&R edition. This one is shorter and does not contain all of the text of the other edition that this is linked to on Amazon. This seems to be sort of common with older books that are being republished by a recent publisher. Just thought I would mention that because that is something that I am always curious about.
