Item description for The Reformed Pastor: Lectures on Pastoral Theology (Princeton Theological Monograph) by John Williamson Nevin & Sam Hamstra, Jr....
Overview During the relatively short history of American Protestantism countless pastors, theologians, and pastor-theologians have addressed a variety of pragmatic issues facing Christian congregations. No one has done so with greater theological precision and passion than the Reformed theologian John Williamson Nevin (1803-1886). Nevin made his mark in American Protestantism with the publication of The Anxious Bench and The Mystical Presence. In this volume, Sam Hamstra brings to light Nevin's previously unpublished "Lectures on Pastoral Theology," a work that provides students with a more comprehensive portrait of one of the nineteenth century's leading Reformed theologians in America. Hamstra's introduction provides an important companion to Nevin's "Lectures," one that includes application for twenty-first-century pastors, as well as a surprise for those familiar with Nevin's critique of New Measures.

More About John Williamson Nevin & Sam Hamstra, Jr.
Phillip A. Ross has pastored churches in Berkeley, California; St. Louis, Missouri, Evansville, Indiana; Bellefonte, Pennsylvania; and Marietta, Ohio. Following his post-ordination conversion to biblical Christianity, he has labored for Gospel renewal through radio, music, counseling, and writing. Coming to see the counter productivity of his B.S in Philosophy, and his M.Div. from Pacific School of Religion, California, he repudiated his formal education, and reeducated himself in the historic traditions of Protestant Christianity. With more than twenty-five years of ministry leadership, Phil has both an understanding of and experience with the unique circumstances involved in ministry. He has particular understanding of and commitment to historic Reformed Christianity, and is the author of many books on biblical exposition.
John Williamson Nevin was born in 1803 and died in 1886.
