Principles of Assembly Rule as Illustrated in First Samuel by A. McShane; 67 pages; 25p. plus 9p. postage (20 copies post free), from the author, 39 Russell Drive, Lurgan, N. Ireland BT66 8HD.
To many readers, the author is but a name often appearing in the Reports Section in connection with the Lord’s work in Northern Ireland. This book now enables readers to sample our brother’s ministry. It is to be regretted that many Christians merely read First Samuel as interesting history, failing to perceive the great spiritual principles brought out in the typical and historical chapters. This book will open many believers’ eyes to see the significance of the events described in the lives of Samuel, Saul and David, for the principles behind these events are of immense practical importance in assembly fellowship and service.
The book is suitable for younger and older ones alike, and it is to be hoped that it will stimulate teachers to engage in fresh ministry along these lines. Its large, well-printed pages are full of spiritual food, and it can be thoroughly recommended for assembly bookstalls.
