“The sermons in this volume confirm that the Word of God preached has a supreme influence explained only by the power of Christ Jesus, Lord of life and history. May many preachers read and be encouraged, and may they return to their mighty task with diligence and passion.”See All
“A most useful volume for modern preachers of the gospel. It still amazes me that many evangelicals have little or no understanding of the immense contribution that Reformed preaching has made to the Unites States of America. This wonderfully edited work will serve the church well.”See All

“In this one volume you can find samples of some of the best of traditional Reformed preaching throughout the span of American history. It provides not only memorable sermons but also fascinating examples of historical change and continuity.”See All
This anthology of eighteen historic, Reformed sermons will be welcomed by all with 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."
The editors have selected one sermon from each of the following: John Cotton, John Winthrop, Cotton Mather, Gilbert Tennant, Jonathan Edwards, Jonathan Mayhew, Ezra Stiles, Archibald Alexander, Asahel Nettleton, James Alexander, Benjamin Palmer, John Girardeau, Geerhardus Vos, Clarence Macartney, J. Gresham Machen, Francis Schaeffer, James Boice, and Timothy Keller.
