The Elder and his Work
The Elder and His Work is a classic that conveys the gravity and importance of the elder’s calling. Nineteenth-century author David Dickson provided this brief, complete manual describing the qualifications and duties of elders.
According to Dickson, an elder is a shepherd of Christ’s flock and a student of God’s Word—a man growing in the gracious disciplines of the Christian life.
This edition has Scripture references, updated spelling and usage, explanatory notes, and study questions for personal reflection and group discussion.
“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.”
