What was your motivation behind this project? With this book I wanted to sit down with a "dream team" of Christian saints, as if over a cup of coffee, and get to know their hearts. I knew that language could be an obstacle, however, since it's changed much over the generations. So each excerpt is carefully and prayerfully updated to modern conversational English -- my way of making their wonderful contribution to the church available to an entire new generation of readers.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? This book is all about perspective. Can we, as believers, gain a fresh perspective on topics we thought we knew? How did church leaders from the 1700s or 1800s look at marriage, for instance? Or baptism? Or our calling to Christian service? If our perspective today has changed from theirs, why? Be prepared for challenges in this book. It has certainly challenged me in the process of bringing it to print!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I loved getting to know each of the classic writers or preachers in this collection. From Spurgeon to Luther, Moody to Calvin, each one inspired me in their dedication to the Lord.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Many (most?) of these excerpts are taken from obscure, nearly forgotten collections that I dusted off while visiting the library at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago -- where they graciously opened their extensive back-room collection to me. I spent many hours there, looking for gems. And I found them! The remarkable thing is, because each one grows out of solid biblical teaching, these writings are as relevant today as the day they were written, dozens or even hundreds of years ago. Take a look for yourself, and see if it's not so. I discovered so much practical advice from these men -- practical wisdom for today's church.
