Studying these volumes is like walking around a great cathedral [. . . ] every section, however distinctive, unites in a grand design whose aim is to restore preaching to its rightful place. This multivolume work is easily the best history of preaching ever written, one that will serve generations of those whose faith comes by hearing.

—William Edgar, Westminster Theological Seminary

Old has bequeathed to the church of the twenty–first century the definitive history of preaching, a spiritual feast for scholars and preachers alike for years and years to come.

—James F. Kay, Princeton Theological Seminary

I consider this series by Old to be most timely. The current unfortunate trend to dumb down worship with less Scripture and with popular topical sermons needs the corrective offered in this comprehensive and readable work.

—Robert Webber, Northern Baptist Theological Seminary

    Wow, I have come to the end of this majestic 7-volume work - and this has been time well spent. This is a superb way to go over Church History, by looking at how the reading and preaching of Scripture is done. Highly recommend this to any who wish to learn more about our Christian Past - and even to get a better feel for Christian traditions with which we disagree or are ignorant of.
