'William Perkins' words from over 400 years ago, must be heard again today. This book is a must read for any who desires to be in the ministry. While you may not agree with everything he wrote, the truth is, what he wrote needs to be wrestled with today by every single pastor who preaches the Bible. If you are not a pastor, but know one, you will want to purchase a copy for him and give it to him. After he reads it, he will (hopefully) thank you profusely for giving him such a powerful book for the most powerful profession in all the world.' --Terry Delaney
About the Author
The great Puritan preacher and theologian William Perkins was born in 1558 in Marston Jabbet in Warwickshire, and received his formal education at Christ's College, Cambridge. He graduated B.A. in 1581, but remained at Christ's as a fellow until 1595; he served as lecturer (preacher) in the church of Great St Andrews from 1584 until his death in 1602 at the age of forty-four.

It should be noted here that by "prophesy" it means preaching the Word of God faithfully (which is technically the biblical definition of the word).
This is one of my first excursions into Puritan preachers and it's interesting how clear they teach (at least Perkins does). Perkins takes time to address both the message, the messenger, and the hearers of the message. He has a high view of Scripture and the way Perkins presents his lesson, it takes an exegetical approach rather than the unfruitful eisegetical approach.
A quick read, that really keeps you on the track of righteousness in learning and preaching. Final Grade - A
This edition will sit on my bookshelf next to Timothy Keller's, "Preaching"!!!
