Overview

The object of these lectures is to exhibit the power of evangelism, to trace its manifestation, development, and vicissitudes in various stages of the church and human history. Each esteemed author in this series delivers a lecture on the life and work of some of history's most important evangelists, starting with the Apostle Paul. Authors include W. G. Blaikie, James Stalker, and Marcus Dods, and the evangelists include St. Augustine, John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Knox, John Owen, John Bunyan, John Wesley, and many more. Delivered in St. George's Free Church of Edinburgh, Scotland between 1881–1884, The Evangelical Succession Lecture Series traces the history of these heroes of the faith in a unique and inspiring manner.

This collection is essential for students, scholars, pastors, teachers of the Bible, or anyone interested in the history of the church. With Logos Bible Software, The Evangelical Succession Lecture Series (3 vols.) is completely searchable, with passages of Scripture appearing on mouse-over as well as being linked to your favorite Bible translation in your library. This makes these texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “grace” or “Matthew 28:19–20.”

Literary World

In every respect worthy contributions to a most valuable volume, which shows ripe scholarship in every page, and breathes reverence in every sentence. It is eminently a healthy book to read, for it stimulates thought and it strengthens faith, exhibiting the heights of sublimity to which human life inspired and sanctified by gospel truth can attain, and setting before a generation which needs to be reminded of the Christian heroism many beautiful examples of unswerving devotion and fearless courage.

Daily Review

We cannot but regard this volume as an exceedingly valuable contribution to a class of literature which is daily becoming more popular, and which is calculated not only to diffuse knowledge, but to foster larger views and wider sympathies.
