In sixteen powerful addresses, Princeton Sermons takes us inside the chapel of the Theological Seminary at Princeton during the years 1891–1892. These "represent the ordinary sermons preached Sabbath by Sabbath" by the esteemed Princeton faculty, including professors, the Dean, and the President of the University. The audience consisted chiefly of divinity students, and this collection provides a window into Princeton Seminary life during a period of growth and great scholarship. These sermons are as powerful and resonant as the day these great faculty members—including B. B. Warfield, Caspar Wistar Hodge, Jr. (youngest son of Charles Hodge), and William H. Green—preached them.

With the Logos Bible Software edition, Princeton Sermons is fully integrated with the other resources in your Logos library, including Bibles, maps, dictionaries, and numerous other Bible study tools. The Logos edition also allows you to perform powerful searches and word studies, and Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your digital library. This makes Princeton Sermons more powerful and easier to access than ever before for reading, sermon preparation, research, and Bible study.

“In both, as the tremendous pageants are unrolled before our eyes, we are made to see the Living God; and to see him as the Light and the Life of the world, the Destroyer of all darkness, the Author of all good. Here too, however, the Old Testament revelation is the preparation for the better to come. In it we see God as the God of power and of wisdom, the Author and Orderer of all; in this we see him as the God of goodness and mercy, the Restorer and Redeemer of the lost. Law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (Pages 94–95)

“Death is unnatural and rightly terrifies its victims. Even more—death is evil, sin’s offspring, Christ’s enemy, Satan’s servant; and every Christian heart must stand aghast before it. It is only because our Lord and Saviour lies now behind death that we can tolerate the thought of it.” (Page 325)

“They are all attempting to make the fruit good without first making the tree good, or to purify the stream without first cleansing the fountain.” (Page 81)

“IF our minds were in perfect harmony with the mind of Christ our views would in many respects be greatly altered. Many things that we now desire and long for would lose much of their attractiveness; and other things that we dread and shrink from would cease to be unwelcome.” (Page 1)

“What are earthly sufferings to one who looks upon his very bodily frame as but a tent, in which he sojourns for a time, and expects the laying of it aside to be merely a step toward entering into a mansion prepared for him by God himself?” (Page 319)

Abounding in high thinking and clear speaking, with sentences sharp as the crack of a whip, which will stick to the memory like epigrams.
