Overview

The four-volume Works of John Dick contains all of Dick's important works, including Lectures on the Acts of the Apostles and his two-volume masterwork Lectures on Theology. Professor Dick was known for his assiduous preparation for each lecture and sermon, writing numerous drafts before he was content with their shape and meaning. For years, his students and congregation left his classroom and his church brimming with new insights about the Bible and Christian life. These lectures were published posthumously by his son, and soon after this humble preacher's careful thoughts and passionate words were being read all over the world.

Works of John Dick (4 vols.) also includes the much lauded Essay on the Inspiration of the Holy Scriptures and a collection of John Dick's early sermons. With the Logos Bible Software edition, each volume in the Works of John Dick (4 vols.) is fully integrated with the other resources in Logos, including Bibles, maps, dictionaries, and numerous other Bible study tools. The Logos edition also allows you to perform powerful searches and word studies, and Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your digital library. This makes the Works of John Dick (4 vols.) more powerful and easier to access than ever before for reading, sermon preparation, research, and Bible study.

The lectures of which this volume is composed were read by John Dick to his students at the Theological Seminary of the United Associate Church, where he was Professor of Systematic Divinity. Professor Dick was known for his assiduous preparation for each lecture, writing numerous drafts before he was content with their shape and meaning. After his death, his son found that these lectures needed almost no editing, and set out to have them published. From its first printing, Dick's Lectures on Theology was endorsed by theologians and pastors all over Scotland and England, and soon they were being read all over the world. Volume one contains fifty-one lectures from this revered preacher and professor.

The lectures of the late Rev. Dr. John Dick are a valuable accession to our theological literature. One of the best works of systematic theology in the English language.

The first sixteen are designed to illustrate the principal events in the history of the Church, from the ascension of Christ to the meeting of the Council of Jerusalem. The last thirteen center primarily around Paul's labors and sufferings.

This is a work of no ordinary merit. We most earnestly recommend this work to our readers.

The Methodist Review

John Dick's Lectures on the Acts of the Apostles is marked by the same penetrating exegetical and theological insight that characterizes his famous Lectures on Theology. Every paragraph sheds light on the sacred page. Dick wrote with great warmth and eloquence. This book doesn't just inform the mind; it also stirs the heart. These lectures are a grand tour of Acts conducted by a master in Israel.

—Dr. Robert Paul Martin

It is certainly the best work on the subject which we have as yet met with, and we cannot do a more essential service to the cause of divine revelation than recommend it to the candid and deliberate perusal of all our readers.

We can safely say that we have read no piece on the subject which has given us equal satisfaction.
