An anthology of 18 sermons preached in American pulpits between 1630 and 2001 from Cotton to Keller. These sermons possess historical significance and spiritual power.
It still amazes me that many evangelicals have little or no understanding of the immense contribution that Reformed preaching has made to the United States of America, past and present. . . . No one who reads this volume should ever suggest that Reformed preachers are necessarily dull in their preaching.
The sermons in this volume, which span the decades between America's beginning and its shattering September, 2001, confirm that the Word of God, preached boldly and with high pertinence, is not merely one power among many; the Word preached has a supreme influence explained only by the power of Christ Jesus, Lord of life and history.
These messages are presented as trustworthy guides to the various kinds of faithfulness required to transform a nation. Such guidance serves to provide fresh courage and confidence for the unique, and sometime lonely, paths God calls his preachers to walk today.
In this one volume you can find 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.
