In the Fall of 1892 the professors of Princeton Seminary asked Dr. John D. Wells, long-time pastor in Brooklyn, NY, to come and deliver three lectures on the subject of ministering to the sick and dying. Wells, himself a graduate of Princeton in the 1840's, spoke to the students in such an effective and passionate way that the professors later asked Wells to have these lectures published. This book is the result of that request.
Knowing that men like Benjamin B. Warfield, and his esteemed colleagues were moved by these lectures in such a way, it is a true shame that they have been unavailble for more than a century.
"Spiritual care of the sick and dying, especially to those who are unconverted, is one of the most sensitive and challenging areas of Christian ministry. Written from a wealth of more than 40 years pastoral experience and from a heart deeply concerned for the salvation of those who are dying, this book is instructive, challenging and heartwarming. Even though written more than 100 years ago, the spiritual lessons contained in it are as up to date as if written yesterday. THIS BOOK SHOULD BE IN THE PRACTICAL THEOLOGY SECTION OF EVERY PASTOR'S LIBRARY." - Jerry Bridges
