Excerpt from The Christian Ministers' Manual: For the Use of Church Officers in the Various Relations of Evangelists, Pastors, Bishops and Deacons
If used according to the design of its author, it will prove an efficient helper to the ministers of the Church of Christ in their various official relations. It is intended as a hand-book for preachers and church officers, and while no Christian should allow himself to become a slave to forms and ceremonials, still enough attention should be given to them to insure decency and order in all church work. Its aim is to supply a practical want in a practical way.
If it shall be the means of assisting those for whom it is pre pared to a better understanding and appreciation of their solemn and important duties, and to a higher and nobler consecration to the service of the Lord, in the ministry of His Word and the perfecting of the saints, the reward will be abundant.
