A fine introduction to Puritan preaching, this little book also recalls one of the great turning points in English Christianity for these sermons were preached on the Farewell Sunday in August, 1662, when two thousand ministers left the national Church for conscience sake. Much has been written on that Great Ejection, but nothing is more important than to hear the ejected speak for themselves. Their watchword was:

I preach as never sure to preach again,
And as a dying man to dying men.

This new edition of Sermons of the Great Ejection not only commemorates the 350th anniversary of a noteworthy historical event but, more importantly, gives a real insight into the theology, godliness, and preaching of the Puritans. Why is this relevant? For two reasons: (i) as the blurb on the first edition said, such preaching could set England alight again in our own times ; and (ii) the issues of 1662 are directly relevant to the present situation in the church when the emphasis is once again upon conformity and unity at the expense of truth and holiness. May this little book be an encouragement to men of gospel truth and integrity everywhere.

About the Author:

From a review by David Burk:

'What do you say in your last sermon when the 'Christian' government and bishops have evicted you? These sermons are the result. The seven sermons in the book did not come from wild-eyed rebels. Most of the preachers were educated in Oxford or Cambridge; two of them had opposed the execution of the king, and some had supported the recall of the Stuart monarchy. They occupied significant ministries and one was offered a bishopric before he refused the oath and was ejected. These were good, reliable and godly men! And these preachers are a model of restraint. They directed their people to the Word of God that they might consider its consolations in distress, its encouragements in hardship, and its warnings of God's judgment. In the language of the day, they applied a 'sweet cordial' to those who drank from the wells of bitterness. Underneath the tumult of their times and its difficulties they saw the comforting hand of divine providence.'

Review:

'Like many books published by Banner, this book is a warm read and nourishment for the soul. It's well worth the modest effort to enter into the world of 1662 and hear a word for [today].' --David Burke
