""The 'scribble,' [as Boston called it] was published in 1773. Since then it has been hailed by evangelicals as a masterpiece on ministry... The idea of a beginning preacher of 22 producing a spiritual masterpiece is startling, no doubt, but Boston was an unusual man."See All

A clear and vigorous challenge to preachers and laymen to remain persistent in sharing the gospel with unsaved people. The book is split in two parts:
- The promise of duty. How does Christ make men 'fishers of men'? Why are unconverted men compared to fish under water? In what ways are ministers fishers by office?
- How may I come by this art? What following Christ supposes and implies? In which way is Christ to be followed?
This is a classic explanation of the Puritan approach to evangelism that is also an encouragement for anyone explaining the gospel to someone else.
