We are grateful to Mervyn Wishart for undertaking the work of compiling a second volume of the writings of E. W. Rogers. The first volume was reviewed in Precious Seed Vol. 75, issue 2 in 2020 and is available to view here on the Precious Seed website.
This publication commences with a comprehensive and appreciative foreword by Jim Allen, in which he recalls his own memories of ‘E. W.’ from the time he first heard him, an Englishman no less, taking part in the Lurgan conference in 1946!
Notwithstanding his nationality, Mr. Allen, together with many others, learned to value the ministry of E. W. Rogers, not just in his home country, but further afield in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and India.
Brief but instructive subjects have been included in this volume, together with more detailed studies of Matthew’s Gospel, the Epistle to the Ephesians, the Pastoral Epistles and the Epistle to the Hebrews. A survey of this book cannot fail to appreciate the Christ-exalting quality of the ministry, whether it is the Sovereign as seen in Matthew’s Gospel, or the Great High Priest of the Epistle to the Hebrews. There is truth to encourage the believer in the exposition of the Ephesian letter, and practical words to challenge in the Pastoral Epistles.
It may be that some readers already have in book form much of the material included in this volume. However, to have them bound and well presented, as in this current publication, may allow those books already owned to be passed on to others with an interest in the word of God.
