P & R Publishing The Elder and His Work

The Elder and His Work is a book that conveys the gravity and importance of the elder's calling. Nineteenth-century author David Dickson provided this brief, complete manual describing the qualification and duties of elders. According to Dickson, an elder is a shepherd of Christ's flock and a student of God's Word--a man growing in the gracious disciplines of the Christian life. This edition has Scripture references, updated spelling and usage, explanatory notes, and study questions for personal reflection and group discussion.

Dickson and his wisdom about how to approach the Eldership was refreshingly simple and completely appropriate for our times. Its hard to believe this was written around 150years ago. My only disappointment was that I read the book so quickly...its over

This book does not provide a biblical defense of the office of elders nor does it necessarily even outline their duties directly. It provides more of a practical view, even more a personal…this is what the eldership looked like in the life of David Dickson. I found it to be very encouraging and packed with practical application for modern day elders. Worth the read.
