These popular sermons by John McNeill, known as the "Scotch Spurgeon," were delivered at the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893 and in his Regent Square Church in London, England. An evangelist who traveled and preached all over the world, his sermons at the World's Fair caused D. L. Moody to proclaim "Mr. McNeill is the greatest preacher in the world." Using plain, unadorned language and humor, McNeill packed the revival halls for weeks wherever he traveled.

Praise for the Print Edition
The apathy of Londoners is one of the most invincible things that the world contains. At his first evening meeting the place was only half filled, but long before the week was out the crowds became so large that there was not nearly room enough to contain them all. The policemen who do continual duty at the City Temple stated that the scene on the last Sunday evening of the mission was such as they had never witnessed in their lives.
—National Council of the Evangelical Free Churches, Free Church Yearbook
Who of all the multitudes that crowded the Central Music Hall at the midday meetings can ever forget the great loving, genial, impetuous McNeill? He is a fine combination of the lion and the lamb, with a good mixture of the sturdy ox, ready for labor or sacrifice.
—Henry Wharton, A Month with Moody in Chicago
Practical evangelical sermons, simple, sincere, and direct.
He is surely a unique man, and quite as wonderful in his way as Mr. Moody or Mr. Spurgeon.

About the Author
John McNeill (1854–1933) began his career as a mechanic. After a few years in that trade, he decided to go to University. After graduating, he was ordained and preached in Edinburgh, then Regent's Park Church in London. After three years, McNeill felt the role of traveling evangelist fit his preaching style better, and set forth across the globe spreading the Gospel. His sermons were wildly popular, and he soon earned the nickname "The Scotch Spurgeon."
