Joel Beeke says that preachers are like spiritual athletes with a need to develop their skills. Thus, there is a need for the preacher to evaluate his sermons, reminding the reader that C.H.Spurgeon told his own students to leave off altogether if they ever think they can preach as well as they should. In this little booklet, based on 1 Corinthians 3:5-15, Dr Beeke suggests five questions that the preacher should ask himself about this preaching. Did I preach as God's servant? Did I preach to build God's church? Did I preach Christ as the only foundation? Did I build my sermons with the precious materials of Reformed experiential preaching? Did I preach for the Master's reward? A helpful "Sermon Evaluation Chart" is at the end of the book, fitting in with each of these five questions.

What would it have been like to sit in Spurgeon's classes?


I hope this book gives a sense of what a student would hear Spurgeon say about preaching if Spurgeon were to speak with them in the hall, from the pulpit, or on a walk down the streets of London.


Thus, the purpose of this book is to enable preachers to apprentice with Spurgeon for a season in order to learn from him about preaching. It is hoped that such an internship will prove valuable for contributing to preachers as they mine resources for gospel relevance and power in the twenty-first century.


But how could Spurgeon help the twenty-first century preacher?

The preacher today in the West will recognize some profound similarities with Spurgeon and his times. It is true that postmodernism and Enlightenment Rationalism are very different philosophies. But their results are similar in that they promote wide spread scepticism and doubt regarding the authority of the Bible. The debates about the use of art and sermon length at the turn of the twenty-first century are no different in substance than those found in England at the turn of the twentieth. The effect of attention span and the need for story to accompany logic are not new topics of discussion for preachers. In addition, pressures that reduce time for sermon preparation and engender the temptation for shallow or borrowed sermons are nothing essentially new.

A Legacy of Preaching, Volume One--Apostles to the Revivalists explores the history and development of preaching through a biographical and theological examination of its most important preachers. Instead of teaching the history of preaching from the perspective of movements and eras, each contributor tells the story of a particular preacher in history, allowing the preachers from the past to come alive and instruct us through their lives, theologies, and methods of preaching.

Each chapter introduces readers to a key figure in the history of preaching, followed by an analysis of the theological views that shaped their preaching, their methodology of sermon preparation and delivery, and an appraisal of the significant contributions they have made to the history of preaching. This diverse collection of familiar and lesser-known individuals provides a detailed and fascinating look at what it has meant to communicate the gospel over the past two thousand years. By looking at how the gospel has been communicated over time and across different cultures, pastors, scholars, and homiletics students can enrich their own understanding and practice of preaching for application today.

Volume One covers the period from the apostles to the revivalists and profiles thirty preachers including:

  • Paul by Eric Rowe
  • Peter by David R. Beck
  • Melito of Sardis by Paul A. Hartog
  • Origen of Alexandria by Stephen O. Presley
  • Ephrem the Syrian by Jonathan J. Armstrong
  • Basil of Caesarea by Jonathan Morgan
  • John Chrysostom by Paul A. Hartog
  • Augustine of Hippo by Edward L. Smither
  • Gregory the Great by W. Brian Shelton
  • Bernard of Clairvaux by Elizabeth Hoare
  • Francis of Assisi by Timothy D. Holder
  • Saint Bonaventure by G. R. Evans
  • Meister Eckhart by Daniel Farca?
  • Johannes Tauler by Byard Bennett
  • John Huss by Mark A. Howell
  • Girolamo Savonarola by W. Brian Shelton
  • Martin Luther by Robert Kolb
  • Ulrich Zwingli by Kevin L. King
  • Balthasar Hubmaier by Corneliu C. Simu?
  • William Tyndale by Scott A. Wenig
  • John Calvin by Anthony N. S. Lane
  • William Perkins by Dwayne Milioni
  • Richard Baxter by Simon Vibert
  • John Owen by Henry M. Knapp
  • John Bunyan by Larry Steven McDonald
  • Matthew Henry by William C. Watson and W. Ross Hastings
  • François Fénelon by Martin I. Klauber
  • Jonathan Edwards by Gerald R. McDermott
  • John Wesley by Michael Pasquarello III
  • George Whitefield by Bill Curtis and Timothy McKnight
  • Volume Two, available separately, covers the period from the Enlightenment to the present day and profiles thirty-one preachers including Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Karl Barth, John Stott, Martin Luther King Jr., Billy Graham, and more.

    Abraham Kuruvilla's A Vision for Preaching offered an integrated biblical and theological vision for preaching. A Manual for Preaching addresses the practical (and perennial) issue of how to move from the biblical text to an effective sermon. The author, a well-respected teacher of preachers, shows how to discern the text's theological meaning and let that meaning shape the development of the sermon. Clearly written and illustrated with Old Testament and New Testament examples, the book helps preachers negotiate larger swaths of Scripture and includes two annotated sermon manuscripts from Kuruvilla.

    What was clear to the original readers of Scripture is not always clear to us. Because of the cultural distance between the biblical world and our contemporary setting, we often bring modern Western biases to the text. For example:

  • When Western readers hear Paul exhorting women to dress modestly, we automatically think in terms of sexual modesty. But most women in that culture would never wear racy clothing. The context suggests that Paul is likely more concerned about economic modesty--that Christian women not flaunt their wealth through expensive clothes, braided hair and gold jewelry.
  • Some readers might assume that Moses married below himself because his wife was a dark-skinned Cushite. Actually, Hebrews were the slave race, not the Cushites, who were highly respected. Aaron and Miriam probably thought Moses was being presumptuous by marrying above himself.
  • Western individualism leads us to assume that Mary and Joseph traveled alone to Bethlehem. What went without saying was that they were likely accompanied by a large entourage of extended family.
  • Biblical scholars Brandon O'Brien and Randy Richards shed light on the ways that Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible. They identify nine key areas where modern Westerners have significantly different assumptions about what might be going on in a text. Drawing on their own crosscultural experience in global mission, O'Brien and Richards show how better self-awareness and understanding of cultural differences in language, time and social mores allow us to see the Bible in fresh and unexpected ways.

    Getting beyond our own cultural assumptions is increasingly important for being Christians in our interconnected and globalized world. Learn to read Scripture as a member of the global body of Christ.
