Thomas Murphy was a prominent Presbyterian minister in the late nineteenth century, pastoring the Presbyterian Church of Frankford in Pennsylvania for many years. This collection offers five of his best works, published between 1877 and 1895, in which Murphy brings his sharp analytical mind, quarter-century of ministry experience, and careful concern with day-to-day practicalities of Christian living to bear on a variety of subjects. These volumes offer rich practical, pastoral, and scholarly insights, as well as a window into Presbyterian life and ministry in America’s booming Gilded Age.
Featuring Pastoral Theology: The Pastor in the Various Duties of His Office—a classic volume still used in Reformed seminaries today—this collection is packed with useful insights that translate easily to the twenty-first century. The Thomas Murphy Collection also includes the supplemental Duties of the Church Member to the Church, which gives a concise guide of the chief responsibilities of lay-members of the church, encouraging a thriving church body where everyone is involved in ministry, not just the “professionals.” You can also explore Murphy’s history, Presbytery of the Log College: The Cradle of the Presbyterian Church in America, and One Hundred Years of the Presbyterian Church of Frankford to gain great insights into the history of the church in America.
