Klappentext

Excerpt from My Sermon-Notes: A Selection From Outlines of Discourses Delivered at the Metropolitan Taberbacle; From Romans to Revelation 196 to 264

This is the concluding portion of My Sermon Notes. There are many more skeletons in the tombs from which these have been brought to light, but I have no idea of summoning any more of them from their retirement. I have no desire to become the rival of Mr. Charles Simeon; and yet, if I should copy any man's outlines, I should prefer him for a model. Notwithstanding the depreciatory remarks which I have frequently read from witty writers who have referred to that great sermonizer, I believe that no one has done better service in that line than he. His helps were needed at the time when they were prepared. In much the same way as the Homilies were necessary to the preachers Of the Reformed Church in its infant days, Simeon's outlines were needed by a newly-converted clergy who had begun to feel the glow of the great Methodist revival. It may be that these sermon-notes may be just in time for a return Of zeal for the doctrines of grace, and a restoration of spiritual ardor, when young men shall feel called upon to speak at once for Jesus, and shall hardly know how to shape their thought's ex pression unless some man shall guide them.

It was never my design to help men to deliver a message which is not their own. It is ill when prophets steal their prophecies from one another, for then they are likely - all Of them - to become false prophets. But as the young prophet borrowed an axe Of a friend, and was not censured for it so long as the strokes he gave with it were his own, so may we refrain from condemning those who find a theme suggested to them, and a line Of thought laid before them, and with all their hearts use them in speaking to the people. This should not be their custom: every man should have an axe of his own, and have no need to cry, Alas, master! It was borrowed but there are times Of special pressure, bodily sick ness, or mental weariness, wherein a man is glad Of brotherly help, and may use it without question. For such occasions I have tried to provide.
