These compiled sermons, preached by a variety of ministers, focus on the topic of repentance. Samuel Wilberforce notes in the preface that “in these pages, the various phases of true and false repentance, as they are set before us in Scripture in several leading examples of each, are fixed and enforced by ministers of God’s Word, of various gifts and shades of character. They will, I think, afford to all the means of furnishing themselves, in one volume, with a very complete exposition, by way of example, of the great subject of true Christian repentance.” Sermons discuss the repentance of David, Esau, Ahab, Judas, and other biblical figures.

It starts with Samuel Wilberforce’s address, “The Church Ordained by Christ to Maintain His Conflict with the Special Corruptions of Every Age.” Other sermons discuss the conflicts with impurity, with undue exaltation of intellect, and with the spirit of expediency, as well as the conflict in a restless, money-getting, and luxurious age. The volume finishes with a sermon on the hope for the end of conflict one day.

Particular topics include “Our Spiritual Adversaries,” “The Conflict and Defeat in Eden,” “Aids in the Conflict:—God’s Gifts of Grace,” and “The Weapons of Our Warfare.”
