YALE AND THE MINISTRY

A lively account of how a succession of wise and dedicated men have carried out the charge of Yale's founding fathers to ""propagate the blessed reformed Protestant religion in this wilderness"". Sparked by Dr. Bainton's attention-demanding style, men of long age, and others of not so long ago, are made to live in pointed biographical notes, spiced with anecdotes, as well as in samples of their writings and teaching, plus a summary of their lasting contribution to the development and spreading influence of the Yale Divinity School. Graduates of the school will take delight in owning a copy, and libraries will be incomplete without one. The development of the Protestant Church in this country cannot well be understood without the enrichment this book affords to the story of men and movements in southern New England.
