Boston, Thomas, The Art of Manfishing
See SOUL-WINNING CLASSICS , Jay P. Green, Sr., editor. ( )
  lettermen | Dec 14, 2007 |
This is a short read, written by Thomas Boston a 'Scottish Puritan'. He has a sensitive spirit but also a first class mind. A man with retentive memory but also a way with words, he always thought best with a pen in his hands, writing out ideas and arguments as they came to him.
This is a classic explanation of the Puritan approach to evangelism that is also an encouragement for anyone explaining the gospel to someone else.
Thomas Boston is introduced to us by J.I. Packer. In an extensive prologue he shows us a little of his life and times and the background to the writing of this 18th century classic.
"The 'scribble', so Boston tells us, was published in 1773. Since then it has been hailed by evangelicals as a masterpiece in ministry... The idea of a beginning preacher of 22 producing a spiritual masterpiece is startling, no doubt. But Boston was an unusual man." - J. I. Packer ( )
