AMERICAN BAPTIST PUBLICATION SOCIETY
1701 CHESTNUT STREET
In presenting a new edition of Dr. Hiscox's valuable work to our churches, the publishers take pleasure in saying that the "New Directory" has been everywhere welcomed with approval and commendation by both pastors and people. Our denominational journals have uniformly given it very high praise. To our knowledge there has been no exception. Some of the author's previous manuals have been for many years in use, have enjoyed a wide circulation, and have largely contributed to the harmony, unity, and good order of our churches. Not a few manuals by other authors on specific departments of our faith and practice, have also been used, many of them of special value, and some of which are still doing good service. But nothing so comprehensive and so complete as the "New Directory " has ever before been offered to our people. A few testimonials from some of our prominent men, and some of our leading journals, are introduced, and certify to the estiination in which the book is held by them. A few changes and additions have been made in the text of the present edition, and a carefully prepared index has been appended, which will add much to its value. We commend with increased confidence the "New Directory" to the favor of American Baptists, as a sound and scriptural exposition of New Testament church polity, as represented by our faith and practice. In addition we express the hope that its use will be still more largely increased as a conservative and an educating force among our churches.
SOME TESTIMONIALS TO THE NEW DIRECTORY
DR. HOVEY, President of Newton Theological Seminary, says: "I have read 'The New Directory' with great satisfaction. The style is well-nigh perfect, and the views which it inculcates are wholesome. I am delighted to see them
stated so fully and so lucidly. The volume will be of great service to the denomination."
DR. STRONG, President of Rochester Theological Seminary, says: "I take great pleasure in commending The New Directory' for Baptist churches, by E. T. Hiscox, D. D., as, on the whole, the most complete and satisfactory manual on the subject extant. I regard it as surprisingly accurate and faithful in its presentation of our polity and usages."
DR. WESTON, President of Crozer Theological Seminary, says: "Dr. Hiscox has unquestionably given us in 'The New Directory' the book which will be the recognized denominational standard for years to come. He has covered the ground which a Baptist directory should occupy, and has done it well."
DR. COREY, President of Richmond Theological Seminary, says: "It is a most valuable book, and its wide circulation among the rising ministry will be productive of very great good. I shall recommend its use in the classes of the seminary."
DR. MACARTHUR of New York, says: "As this is the last so it is the ablest of all the manuals Dr. Hiscox has prepared. The whole denomination may well rise up to honor Dr. Hiscox for the important service he has rendered, the denominational inspiration he has imparted, and the sound instruction he has given."
