About-

Meditate on these things . . .
The discipline of meditating day and night in the Book of the Lord (Joshua 1; Psalm 1) is a costly art, hard won in any age--perhaps even more so in today's stressful times of multi-tasking ministry and cut-and-paste computing.
First hand-written in black-and-red notebooks from scraps of paper, using only a King James Bible and a Strong's Concordance, The House of God records the spiritual exercise of a working pastor and itinerant preacher over eighteen months, the last six spent confined to hospital with injured legs.
For pastors and students of the Gospel ministry, the book furnishes a three-year course for weekly private worship, complete with original hymns, select Bible readings, and intense devotional meditations on Paul's First Epistle to Timothy.
The author prayerfully aims to nourish "the inner man of the heart" and to encourage the practice of Scripture meditation. May it prompt King Jesus' servants to heed their life and doctrine as people of God called to "the house of God, the Church of the living God, the ground and pillar of the truth."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"I myself, a pastor for over twenty-five years, have not yet come across a devotional book like this one. Instead of being an amalgamation of various commentaries, it is the outcome of a unique process of independent study and meditation on this epistle, which makes for an original book of devotions. The style is that of one speaking to God and is comparable to that of Augustine in his Confessions. In short, this book would be a helpful tool for ministers and students in theology who are being equipped to serve in the sacred office. It would be very useful as a devotional commentary in the work of sermon preparation."
--Rev. Gerald R. Procee
Maranatha Free Reformed Church, Ancaster, Ontario

"Up until the mid-twentieth century, one could find books that were made to be savored and meditated upon, to read a bit and put it down and think and pray a bit. Such is the book you are holding in your hand. With Scripture readings, hymns and poems, exposition and meditation, and cross references, this book reminds me of some of the better works of bygone generations when . . . the goal was conformity to Christ--not just how well read you were. This obvious labor of love . . . draws me closer to Christ and better fits me for my calling as a Christ-like man and Christ's man for my congregation. It is a privilege to commend such a fine work. If I were a rich man, I would put it in the hands of every Protestant pastor, professor, seminarian, and elder."
--Rev. Steven Martin,
Heritage Church, Fayetteville, Georgia
