Albert N. Martin served as pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in Montville, New Jersey, for more than forty years and he taught Pastoral Theology in the Trinity Ministerial Academy for twenty years. Esteemed by leading theologians and pastors, his preaching is the subject of a book, My Heart for Thy Cause (ISBN 978-1-85792-716-0). Brian Borgman is founding pastor of Grace Community Church. He earned a B.A. in Biblical Studies from Biola University (La Mirada, California), a Master of Divinity from Western Conservative Baptist Seminary (Portland, Oregon) and a Doctor of Ministry from Westminster Seminary (Escondido, California).
'He has a fine mind and a masterful grasp of Reformed theology'-- J.I. Packer, Regent's College, Vancouver
'I find Al Martin's preaching to be sound, compelling.... He cuts it straight.'-- John MacArthur
'His preaching is powerful, impassioned, exegetically solid, balanced, clear in structure, penetrating in application. His ministry is often attended by a peculiar degree of unction from the Spirit.'-- Ed Donnelly
'he is in daily life what he is in the pulpit.'-- Iain Murray
Every preacher should take the time to read Borgman's book. It is a deeply satisfying theology of preaching - more satisfying than anything else I've read... a stunning compendium of pastoral theology in a typically Martinesque reformed and puritan style that is effective and powerful in this the 21st century.-- The Reformed Theological Review
'Al Martin's preaching excels in bringing home God's truth to the consciences of people.'-- Joel Beeke
