William Plumer’s pamphlet “To a Young Preacher” now online…

You can find it here. It contains some wonderful words of wisdom from a seasoned pastor to a young man in the ministry. It also contains a fuller quote of Lord Bacon’s famous dictum than I have seen anywhere else: “Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man; and, therefore, if a man write little, he had need have a great memory; if he confer little, he had need have a present wit; and if he read little, he had need have much cunning, to seem to know what he doth not.”

Ezra

  1. I wish more people wrote like that nowadays. Does the PCA send a letter congratulating the President now?
