This anthology of eighteen historic, Reformed sermons will be welcomed by all who have a serious interest in American history, literature, and religion. Each sermon is introduced by one of the editors, historians who specialize in American Christianity.
The preachers represented in this volume "show us God’s servants as instruments of his grace," writes William Barker. "They manifest in their lives the flaws of fallen, sinful human nature and yet the penetrating insight and eloquence of men who have experienced the grace of God and have confidence in the truth of his word."
"Precisely because the preachers of these sermons believed there is an ‘unchanging word’ from God and precisely because they sought faithfully to speak that word into the ‘changing world’ they faced," writes Samuel Logan, "what they said matters greatly to those who, today, continue to believe in the power and sufficiency and authority of that word."
