Product Description

Robert Breckinridge defends several basic principles of Presbyterian Polity. He maintains that church government is a matter of divine law (jure divino). He discusses the scriptural warrant for ruling elders, the nature of church courts, and the limits of church power.

Set amidst the eldership debates of the 1840s, Breckinridge's historic speech received much attention in it's day. J.H. Thornwell provided a favorable review of this speech and several other writings by Breckinridge.

R.J. Breckinridge originally gave this speech before the Synod of Philadelphia in October 1843. At the time, Breckenridge was pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church in Baltimore. Breckinridge later held positions as president of Jefferson College (Pennsylvania); pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Lexington, Kentucky; and professor of Theology in the Presbyterian seminary at Danville, Kentucky.

This new edition contains an introductory essay which provides background to the eldership controversy and biographical information about Breckenridge.
