Praise for the Print Edition

Studying these volumes is like walking around a great cathedral every section, however distinctive, unites in a grand design whose aim is to restore preaching to its rightful place. This multi-volume work is easily the best history of preaching ever written, one that will serve generations of those whose faith comes by hearing. But far more, this work is the best defense of preaching available: it proves that in every era, though with astonishing variety, the ministry of the Word is central to the worship of God.

—William Edgar, Westminster Theological Seminary

I consider this . . . to be most timely. The current unfortunate trend to dumb down worship with less Scripture and with popular topical sermons needs the corrective offered in this comprehensive and readable work.

—Robert Webber, Wheaton College
