John D. Wells
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 1840s, 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. Jerry Bridges, author of numerous God-centered books, wrote the following as soon as he finished reading a photocopy recently sent to him: "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.
