Hints and Helps in Pastoral Theology – William S. Plumer

The republication of this book at this time is, indeed, a good providence of God. The author was William Plumer (1802-80). Plumer was a theologian of great intellect and spirituality. He was a pastor and churchman of considerable note who lived through societal changes produced by bitter wrangling over political ideology, a bloody war, and substantial cultural conflicts.
