  • Publisher: Macmillan and Co.
  • Publication Date: 1869
  • Pages: 136

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

B.F. Westcott believed that the cathedral should be a center of scholarly theological learning. When he began his ministry at Peterborough Cathedral in 1869, he seized the opportunity to present an inspiring vision of this ideal. Emphasizing the transformative power of a diverse congregation striving toward the same goal, these sermons challenged Westcott’s listeners to take up his challenge. Readable, intelligent, and practical, the selections collected here grant unique insight into the passions of one of the greatest biblical scholars of the nineteenth century.

From Strength to Strength: Three Sermons on Stages in a Consecrated Life

  • Author: B.F. Westcott
  • Publisher: Macmillan and Co.
  • Publication Date: 1890
  • Pages: 76

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The sermons in this volume are the record of three milestones in the friendship of B.F. Westcott and his colleague J.B. Lightfoot. When Lightfoot was to be consecrated Bishop of Durham, Westcott was called upon to preach. Years later, when Lightfoot undertook the building of the Church of St. Ignatius the Martyr, he turned to Westcott to preach the dedicatory sermon. When Lightfoot died later that same year, Westcott remembered him in a sermon full of tender words of Christian hope. Together these sermons make for a warm memorial to friendship amongst two giants of biblical scholarship.

The Mission of the Schoolmaster: a Sermon

  • Author: B.F. Westcott
  • Publisher: Macmillan and Co.
  • Publication Date: 1885
  • Pages: 22

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this sermon, addressed to the teachers at St. Mark’s College in 1885, B.F. Westcott argues that the one goal of all Christian workers—including Christian teachers—is the “perfecting of the saints.” He lays before his hearers the immense duty of shaping a future generation for service to God. While acknowledging the difficulties that accompany a life in education, he elevates the task of teaching to one of true spiritual and social import. Sober yet encouraging, his words are a glowing affirmation of the impact teachers can have on the lives of students.

Victory of the Cross

  • Author: B.F. Westcott
  • Publisher: Macmillan and Co.
  • Publication Date: 1889
  • Pages: 124

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

These six sermons present an overview of Westcott’s understanding of the atonement. In them, he asserts that punishment for sin is not external to sin, but is rather a natural consequence of sin. Applying this principle to the work of Christ on the cross, Westcott argues for atonement as restoration of fellowship with God, not the remission of an arbitrary punishment. Other sermons in the volume underscore the importance of the incarnation to the atonement, as well as the essential unity of mankind. This volume is the perfect summary of an influential scholar’s view of an important Christian teaching.

The Incarnation and the Common Life

  • Author: B.F. Westcott
  • Publisher: Macmillan and Co.
  • Publication Date: 1893
  • Pages: 448

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this collection of sermons, B.F. Westcott applies the doctrine of the incarnation to everyday Christian life and social issues of his time. Running the gamut of Christian experience and interests—from the poor in India and socialism, to the family and almsgiving—Westcott’s thoughts are insightful and practical. Also included are letters—addressed to various influential members of the clergy—which discuss the practical implications of the incarnation for ministry in England. Drawn from the years 1891–1893, these sermons and letters represent an important period in the developing thought of B.F. Westcott.

When B.F. Westcott became Regius Professor of Divinity at Cambridge, he was also made rector of the village of Somersham. It would be 12 years before he was relieved of his duties as a country parson. However, in the intervening years he produced an extraordinary amount of sermons—many of which are collected in Village Sermons. Organized according to the liturgical year, the selections in this volume document the careful thought of a biblical scholar applied to the lives of ordinary parishioners.
