In five sections and thirty-nine chapters, Sinclair B Ferguson writes on pastor-teachers whose life and work have left an indelible mark on his own life, and then leads us in a series of chapters on the teaching of John Calvin, John Owen and the seventeenth century Puritans. This is followed by studies of Scripture, the ministry of the Spirit, the nature of Biblical Theology, the work of Christ, adoption, the nature of the Christian life and other important doctrines. The final section discusses various aspects of preaching, including preaching Christ from the Old Testament, the importance of theology, reaching the heart, and concludes with a decalogue for preachers.
All this, as the epilogue makes clear, is set within the context and goal of doxology. Here is a book to return to again and again, for instruction, for challenge, and also for enjoyment.

While written particularly with ministers in view its style makes it accessible to all. Dr Ferguson describes Some Pastors and Teachers as a series of small gifts for fellow-ministers and others, written as an expression of the love of Christ. Submit your testimonial.

He writes with a gravitas that is both weighty and inspirational. While each of the thirty-nine chapters are commendable in their own right, chapter thirty-seven, was especially meaningful to me.

A right use of the Bible which must first be directed to the mind. Nourishment of the whole person.
This behemoth of a book is filled with rich material that promises deep pastoral encouragement, comfort, and instruction. Iain Mackenzie — September 8, A large volume book and perhaps a bit daunting for many to pick up. Well let me encourage you to pick it up and devour it and your soul will be nourished. And according to a recently published book, they deserve much greater attention.
Williamson, an associate professor of religious studies at Hendrix College in Arkansas, and the founding pastor of Mercy Community Church in Little Rock, makes his case through a unique approach. There, he developed an interest in the Old Testament, which he said was not read or preached about much in the church he grew up attending. He noted that God and humans have a different relationship in the Five Scrolls than in other books of the Hebrew Bible, with God not appearing at all in Esther and present only as a character in Ecclesiastes and Lamentations.
Ecclesiastes was harder to connect to.
We do die. Five hundred to 1, years from now, no one is going to remember we lived. What do you want to do with the time we have?
What Is A Teacher?
Despite such revelations, he said, much of the world does not sufficiently appreciate the Five Scrolls. His book attempts to make amends. Williamson has not had much spare time as a professor, a pastor and — most recently — a father. Last year, he and his wife, Lindy Vogado, became parents to daughter Anna Kate, now a month-old.
