On the Preparation and Delivery of Sermons by John Albert Broadus

Very fine book. I didn't read this edition, but rather a very old version published in 1882. I am assuming the one I read was unabridged. A standard work that preachers ought to be familiar with. You need to make adjustments for time and place, but t ...more

This was a good book, with a lot of good points, but I would criticize it the way Ambrose Bierce reviewed a book one time, by saying that its covers were too far apart. The book felt padded at times, and had it been leaner I think it would have been ...more

Wonderful description, and held my interest all the way through. But while all the back story on Lila was interesting, the narrative got a bit lost in the brambly hedges of the MidWest countryside, along with the theology.

Very good. Should be used as a companion volume to The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates.

Nancy and I read through this together for our Advent reading this year. Solid, substantive, very good. Christmas is all about glory to God and peace for us, and the latter never thrives without the former.

Frequently did not know what was going on, but enjoyed many wonderful phrases and images. An endless wood, full of Celtic twilight.

I enjoyed portions of this book, and learned from it, but I think I was let down because it didn't really live up to the title. The title is stupendous, and promises the moon, which rhymes with June. Nevertheless, the book did what I like books like ...more

“Education is the process of selling someone on books. ”
Douglas Wilson

“God gave us minds to think with and hearts to thank with. Instead we use our hearts to think about the world as we would like it to have been, and we use our minds to come up with rationalizations for our ingratitude. We are a murmuring, discontented, unhappy, ungrateful people. And because we think we want salvation from our discontents...”

Will Is there an error with your page? It says you've been reading those 3 books in your 'Currently Reading' section since 2009.


Margaret Thanks! I've read several of your titles and plan to continue on into Omnibus. I used it while working as a long term substitute at a Classical Christian School and now nothing else with suit!
