CONTAINING FIFTY TWO SERMONS ON SEVERAL SELECT TEXTS OF SCRIPTURE TO WHICH ARE ADDED NOTES EXPLANATORY OF SEVERAL PASSAGES IN THEM, BY JOHN GILL, D. D.
Published by Robert Lancaster, Christ Alone Exalted: The Complete Works of Tobias Crisp (2 vols.) contains a total of fifty two sermons as well as memoirs of Tobias Crisp’s life. The collection was first published in 1643, the year of Crisp’s death. Later, in 1690, his complete works were republished by one of his sons with some additional materials. The final copy was published in 1791 by John Gill, an English Baptist minister.
The sermons of Tobias Crisp are saturated with scriptural references and the doctrine of free grace, and they highlight well-known, well-loved texts from the New Testament. His passion for evangelism and persuasive debating skills shine through in these sermons.
Volume 1: Beginning with a four-page biography of Crisp, this volume also holds an extensive introduction by Robert Lancaster, the first publisher of the complete works, as well as an introduction by George Cokayn. Following the introductory section are twenty-three sermons covering well-loved books of the Bible such as Isaiah, John, Romans, and 1 Corinthians.
Volume 2: Volume 2 contains twenty-nine sermons, beginning with Isaiah 6 and ending with a sermon on Galatians, entitled “A funeral sermon, occasioned by the death of Mr. Brunsell, Vicar of Wroughton.” Encompassing subjects such as Christ’s cleansing blood and Christ as the head of the Church, these sermons are encouraging and inspiring.
Please note: Some consider Crisp to have antinomian tendencies. See John Murray's Covenant Theology article (volume 4 of his works) and Mark Jones' Antinomianism Pg 7.
