In 1898 Charles Edward Jefferson became the pastor of the Broadway Tabernacle in Brooklyn, New York. He stayed as pastor for 33 years of fruitful ministry. Thousands of people packed the sanctuary every Sunday to hear him preach.
In Quiet Hints to Growing Preachers, Jefferson discusses the nuts of bolts of pastoral ministry in pithy language. This is a book about ministerial deportment, an old-fashioned word that refers to how a man carries himself, how he presents himself, his manners, his bearing, his habits, and his whole approach to life. Youll learn things here they dont teach in seminary. Though he wrote over a century ago, Jeffersons advice to pastors is timeless.
