Editorial Reviews

Mark Dever
Phil Ryken and George McFarland have served us well by bringing this classic on the shepherding ministry of elders up to date and back into print. The thoughtful tone of this work is convicting, encouraging us to be the shepherds God has raised up for the good of His flock and the glory of His name. I can’t wait to use this with our own elders!
J. Stafford Carson
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.
Charles Dunahoo
Though this book was written by a Scottish ruling elder 150 years ago, Dickson sets forth the framework for the ruling elder in shepherding God’s flock. Rediscovering these biblical principles and practicing them would impact today’s church.
