The Lenten Sermons Preached in Oxford collection provides a wealth of wisdom to help the faithful prepare for Easter. These classic sermons were delivered in Oxford from 1856 to 1870 by the lord bishop of Oxford, Samuel Wilberforce, and over 50 other Anglican leaders. These messages encouraged and challenged listeners toward self-examination, self-denial, and repentance—helping the faithful to remember the suffering of Christ, and pointing them to his glorious resurrection celebrated at Easter. Consisting of over 80 sermons, this collection serves as an invaluable devotional resource for the season of Lent, with insights that resonate as loudly today as when they sounded through the halls of Oxford churches 150 years ago.
