The cliché is that those who do not learn from the mistakes of the past are doomed to repeat them. But Thabiti Anyabwile contends that it is not the mistakes we must study; it is the people who have overcome them. So he presents three of the most influential African-American pastors in American history who can teach us what faithful ministry entails.

Lemuel Haynes (1753-1833) reminds pastors that eternity must shape our ministry. Daniel A. Payne (1811-1893) stresses the importance of character and preparation to faithful shepherding. And Francis J. Grimké (1850-1937) provides a vision for engaging the world with the gospel. While they are from the African-American tradition, they, like all true saints, belong to all Christians of every background and era. Distinctive for its use of rare and out-of-print messages, Anaybwile's work is valuable as a reference as well as a devotional resource.

Review:

"Do yourself a favor; read this book, and share it with others."
Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC; President, 9Marks

"Thabiti Anyabwile introduces us to past African-American voices calling pastors to faithfulness in life and doctrine. This is the kind of book we pastors need."
C.J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville

"Reading The Faithful Preacher is like being introduced to three long-lost spiritual grandfathers and their legacy of pastoral fidelity."
J. Ligon Duncan III, Chancellor, CEO, and John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

"Stories of faithful men of God-puritans of the richest kind. This book is a splendid achievement."
Derek W. H. Thomas, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina; Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic and Pastoral Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary; Teaching Fellow, Ligonier Ministries

"As an African-American I welcome this book with great enthusiasm. It reminds the broad evangelical world of the provocative, deeply theological, missional, and culturally engaging tradition of African-American gospel preaching. A must read for all church traditions."
Anthony B. Bradley, Associate Professor of Theology and Ethics, The King's College

"With biblical and historical insight, Thabiti would have us admire and thank God for the labors and lives of three men-clear demonstrations of what the pastoral ministry should be, regardless of race, color, or nationality."
Anthony J. Carter, Assistant Pastor of Southwest Christian Fellowship; author, On Being Black and Reformed

"At last a great book that taps the fresh water that flows from the heart of three great African-American preachers of the past! We have much to learn from them."
Joseph M. Stowell, President, Cornerstone University, Grand Rapids, Michigan
