President Abraham Lincoln personally requested that Brown serve in this position prior to the authorization of military hospital chaplains by Congress.This historic text contains advice and guidance for military chaplains in all positions. While circumstances of the Nineteenth Century were different than those faced today, the principles contained herein are applicable for ministry in today’s military environment. Chaplains will find in this book encouragement and admonition to be wholly engaged in preaching the gospel and in providing pastoral care to those in their charge.This reprint edition includes the unabridged text in a new typesetting.
