by B. B. Warfield
This is an outstanding collection of sermons on the beauty, wonder, and majesty of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Saviour of the World contains nine of Warfield’s sermons preached in the chapel of Princeton Theological Seminary. Each sermon is based on a significant text of the New Testament, including the Parable of the Prodigal Son, the metaphor of Jesus as the Lamb of God, God’s love, God’s glory, the resurrection of Christ, and the incarnation. Conversational in tone and firmly rooted in the Bible, his sermons in The Saviour of the World reveal the clear connection between his theology and his understanding of the Bible.
Warfield’s expositions unobtrusively express both his scholarly sense of the precise meaning of his texts and the warmth of his devotion to Jesus Christ. The result is a book of the highest order – biblically instructive and spiritually engaging. Happy the students who first heard such sermons and were nourished in their faith by them. Happy too, minsters, students and readers in general who may again digest such rich spiritual fare!
