Overview

Locked church doors and tossed rotten eggs greeted the faithful and patient Charles Simeon in his early years as a pastor. But in humility and simple power he was allowed by God to triumph. He became, as
John R.W. Stott notes, "one of the greatest and most persuasive preachers the Church of England has ever known." Why did he have such an impact? You'll discover the reasons yourself as you read these clearflowing sermons, rich in content and clean in style.
Shining through his words are Simeon's simple devotion to pure biblical truth, his concise and orderly presentation, and his pastor's mind and heart. James
Houston's editorial preface is an instructive guide to
Simeon's sound homiletical principles, while Stott's introduction is an engaging portrait of Simeon as a servant of God. Surveying his long life (1758-1836)
and fruitful ministry, Stott is especially impressed by
Simeon's refreshing, unaffected humility, and writes,
"Our proud, self-confident, self-congratulatory generation urgently needs to recover this biblical perspective."

Dr. James M. Houston, editor of the CLASSICS OF FAITH
AND DEVOTION SERIES, is a highly acclaimed scholar and pioneer in the field of evangelical spirituality. He came to North America from England in 1968 to lead
Regent College in Vancouver, Canada, an international graduate school of Christian studies.
