“Octavius Winslow was a faithful and well-respected pastor and preacher for almost forty-five years during the nineteenth century. His sermons are a treasure trove of biblical, theological, and practical truth. Sadly, he has almost been lost to our generation. However, Tanner Turley has set out to rectify this situation and, in my judgment, has succeeded with flying colors. The life, ministry, and preaching of this faithful servant of Christ are worth remembering. This fine work will make that possible.”See All

Over the course of nearly forty-five years of pastoral ministry, Octavius Winslow (1808 1878) effectively demonstrated the practice of applying doctrine to life through his experimental preaching.
In Heart to Heart: Octavius Winslow's Experimental Preaching, Tanner G. Turley surveys Winslow's life and ministry and demonstrates how a strong theology of preaching provided the foundation for his preaching methodology. Turley highlights the doctrinal precision and Christological focus of Winslow's preaching, revealing an aim at holistic change in hearers through the use of application, discrimination, inquiry, illustration, exhortation, and persuasion. By introducing us to this influential preacher of the past, this study shows the significance of Winslow's homiletic for the church of today.
