Leaves from the Tree of Life is a collection of 49 discourses by Alexander Maclaren. Maclaren begins each sermon with a short scripture and an accompanying explanation. Typical of Maclaren's preaching and writing, the text is rich with original language notes to assist the reader in understanding the Word of God. Maclaren makes unmistakable parallels between the Word of God and the believer's life today. In plain language, he brings the text to life and encourages the hearer to get on or continue in the way of Christ. The messages contained in this volume are sure to encourage, challenge, and enlighten those who read them. About the Author Alexander Maclaren, D.D. (1826-1910) felt called to preach from a young age and delivered his first sermon when he was seventeen years old. Maclaren attended the Baptist College in Stepney where he was greatly influenced by the Principal Benjamin Davies. Through Maclaren's time at Stepney College and his time with Davies, Maclaren became a committed student of the original Bible languages and would often enrich his listeners (and readers) through his keen understanding of the original tongue. Maclaren's first pastorate was a small, dying church in Southhampton. It was of his time in Southhampton that Maclaren would later say, "I thank God for the early days of struggle and obscurity." Indeed, Maclaren was intent on excelling at preaching and pastoring his small flock; he would often refuse invitations to speak at other churches and conferences. Despite his initial obscurity, in 1858 Maclaren moved to Manchester where, after eleven years, the church had need to build a 1,500-seat building, and Maclaren's homiletical abilities became famous throughout the English-speaking world. In 1905, after 45 years of ministry, Maclaren resigned as pastor. The fruit of Maclaren's commitment to diligent Bible study has been passed on to later generations through his many expository writings. In them, the reader will find the writings a learned and dedicated man who was eager to clearly communicate the gospel of Christ to his readers. Highly educated, yet known for his humility, Maclaren's works will inspire you to continue in the endurance of the Scriptures for the glory of Christ.

Alexander Maclaren (1826–1910) was a Baptist preacher in England. He was educated at Stepney College, London, where he studied Hebrew and Greek and learned the discipline of expository preaching. He presided over Portland Chapel in Southhampton for 12 years, Union Chapel in Manchester for 45 years and was twice elected as president of the Baptist Union. His ministerial career spanned nearly 65 years from 1842–1905. MacLaren’s passion for the pulpit ministry was only surpassed by his pursuit of a life hid with God in Christ. He was revered by all who heard him speak and has served as an exemplar of expository preaching for all who have come after him.
