Life and Sermons of Elder James Quinter
Download Full Text
Quinter’s daughter Mary published this book “at the earnest solicitation of [his] friends” (p. 7). She hoped that “glimpses” of Quinter’s life would “prove an encouragement and help” to readers, and that his sermons would bring them “into close contact with a heart warm with the love of Christ and zeal for His cause” (p. 8). H. B. Brumbaugh’s Introduction lists 3 similar goals: to provide “a short sketch of the life of a man who has made the world better by his living in it”; to preserve his sermons “for the benefit and instruction of the ministry”; and to “prove a home ministry in thousands of Christian families, at times when no other opportunity can be had, to have the Gospel preached” (p. 11).
