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.
