Product Description

"Thornwell (1812-1862) was one of the greatest preachers that America has ever produced. Here, I think, we have the perfect combination of brilliance of intellect and profound theological and philosophical knowledge, together with pulpit eloquence of the highest order." - Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

This biography by Dr. Benjamin M. Palmer (1818-1902) is a masterly piece of work. While it abounds in information and often fascinating detail, Thornwell's main concerns on such matters as the true nature of preaching, the purity and renewal of the church, and the rule of Scripture, receive their true prominence, and they supply lessons of abiding importance to the Church. Palmer does not disguise his belief that Thornwell was the greatest preacher and theologian he ever knew, but it is the impression given of Thornwell as a Christian which is central. Such a volume as this must kindle the spirit of prayer for 'what of all things we need most, a revival of pure religion in all our churches.'

    I have studied James H. Thornwell's writings in detail, and yes, he is an eloquent, beautiful writer. But please take his writings with a gigantic grain of salt. His "The Rights and Duties of Masters" is a sinister promotion of whites' rights to own slaves, and of blacks' incapacity and destiny to be forever enslaved. Thornwell may have written some edifying sermons, but I would never recommend looking to this man as a spiritual leader. He was truly an evil man.
