The Complete Works of Thomas Smyth (10 vols.)

Overview

Thomas Smyth was a nineteenth century pastor and lecturer, prolific in writing and preaching. In this extensive ten-volume set, Smyth’s many sermons, lectures, treatises, church guidelines, reviews, discourses, and articles are collected.

Smyth was involved in politics and social issues, as well as being a key character in nineteenth century formation of doctrine and practice in the Presbyterian Church. He was well-known for his views and involvement in the American Civil War, arguing for the common humanity of all people. He was strongly opposed to the splitting of the Presbyterian denomination at the time, believing that unity was more important than individual opinions. Smyth was especially famous for promoting the necessity of elders and deacons in church leadership, pointing to Scripture for his arguments. Smyth focuses on both theoretical and practical aspects of this important issue, providing in-depth context and analysis. This collection is essential for Presbyterian pastors, seminary students, and anyone interested in the history of Presbyterianism in America.
