In The Duties of Church Members to their Pastors, John Angell James sets forth nine specific duties which the members of the church owe their pastors. If they are carefully followed, the church of Christ will be greatly enriched and will stand ready for divine blessing. In the foreword to A Plea to Pray for Pastors, Pastor John MacArthur writes, "A Plea to Pray for Pastors is excerpted from Gardinar Spring's excellent book, The Power of the Pulpit. It is nearly 200 years old, but its message is as fresh and relevant as the day it was written. My own heart echoes this plea."
