What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"Do yourself a favor; read this book, and share it with others."
Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington DC; President, 9Marks

"Thabiti Anyabwile introduces us to past African-American voices calling pastors to faithfulness in life and doctrine. This is the kind of book we pastors need."
C. J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky

"Reading The Faithful Preacher is like being introduced to three long-lost spiritual grandfathers and their legacy of pastoral fidelity."
J. Ligon Duncan III, Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi

"Stories of faithful men of God-puritans of the richest kind. This book is a splendid achievement."
Derek W. H. Thomas, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina; Robert Strong Professor of Systematic and Pastoral Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

"As an African-American I welcome this book with great enthusiasm. It reminds the broad evangelical world of the provocative, deeply theological, missional, and culturally engaging tradition of African-American gospel preaching. A must read for all church traditions."
Anthony B. Bradley, Associate Professor of Theology and Ethics, The King's College

"With biblical and historical insight, Thabiti would have us admire and thank God for the labors and lives of three men-clear demonstrations of what the pastoral ministry should be, regardless of race, color, or nationality."
Anthony J. Carter, Assistant Pastor of Southwest Christian Fellowship; Author of On Being Black and Reformed

"At last a great book that taps the fresh water that flows from the heart of three great African-American preachers of the past! We have much to learn from them."
