Devoted to the Service of the Temple is an excellent little work that brings together some extracts from the writings of Hercules Collins.Hercules Collins(1646/7-1702) was a well respected and greatly used Particular Baptist minister who was also one of the signers of the Second London Baptist Confession of 1677/89.
The first part of the book is a brief biography of Collins collected from what is avaialable on him.After that there follows 35 chapters that are extracts from his works.Chapter 1,18-19, & 34 are taken from a catechism Collins wrote that was a revision of the Heidleburg Catechism.Chapters 2-6 are taken from A Voice From The Prison which Collins wrote while incarcerated in Newgate Prison.Chpters 7-9 are taken from Counsel For The Living.Ten through fourteen are extracts from A Mountain of Brass which Collins wrote concerning the decrees of God.Chapter 15-17 are from A Scribe Instructed Unto The Kingdom Of Heaven. Chapters 20-32 take up the bulk of the book and are taken from Collins most important work, The Temple Repaired, a book Collins wrote dealing with the call and vocation of ministers. Chapter 33 & 35 are taken from two separate, lesser known works.Included as an appendix is Collin's funeral sermon preached by John Piggott.
Overall, this is a work that is well written with extensive footnotes for further reference and adds to the ongoing recovery of the writings of our Particular Baptist forefathers.
