600 pages of wisdom from Francis Grimke

Presbyterian pastor Francis Grimke (1850-1937) lived to the age of 87, and maintained the heart of a pastor till his final years. As he withdrew from public ministry, he continued to write in his notebooks, recording thoughts on preaching, ministry in general, the Bible, the Christian life, and the importance of character, as well as reflections on the racial situation of his day, observations on historical events and figures, and tender thoughts about his deceased wife. His love for Jesus, the gospel, the church, and his wife come through so clearly in the "Stray Thoughts and Meditations" that make up Volume 3 of his Works. Every pastor would do himself a favor to read and meditate upon the wise words of Grimke.
