Sermons of The Great Ejection

$10.00 $8.75

A fine introduction to Puritan preaching, this volume also recalls one of the great turning points in English Christianity — for these sermons were preached on ‘the Farewell Sunday’ in August, 1662, when two thousand ministers left the national Church for conscience’ sake. Much has been written on that Great Ejection, but nothing is more important than to hear the ejected speak for themselves. Their watchword was:

“I preach as never sure to preach again,
And as a dying man to dying men.”

This new edition of Sermons of the Great Ejection not only commemorates the 350th anniversary of a noteworthy historical event but, more importantly, gives a real insight into the theology, godliness, and preaching of the Puritans.

Sermons of The Great Ejection

A fine introduction to Puritan preaching, this volume also recalls one of the great turning points in English Christianity — for these sermons were preached on ‘the Farewell Sunday’ in August, 1662, when two thousand ministers left the national Church for conscience’ sake. Much has been written on that Great Ejection, but nothing is more important than to hear the ejected speak for themselves. Their watchword was:

“I preach as never sure to preach again,
And as a dying man to dying men.”

This new edition of Sermons of The Great Ejection not only commemorates the 350th anniversary of a noteworthy historical event but, more importantly, gives a real insight into the theology, godliness, and preaching of the Puritans.

Relevance of The Great Ejection

Why is this relevant? For two reasons:

1stly, As the original edition said, ‘such preaching could set England alight again in our own times’; and

2ndly, the issues of 1662 are directly relevant to the present situation in the church when the emphasis is once again upon conformity and unity at the expense of truth and holiness. May this book be an encouragement to men of gospel truth and integrity everywhere.
