The Saint's Will Judge the World, and Other Sermons

 This work is the final available sermon compilation of Cawdrey. His first sermon is, “The Saints Shall Judge the World,” from Revelation 20:4, “And I saw seats, and they say upon them, and judgment was given unto them,” and Psalm 149:9, “Such honor have all his saints.” This sermon is extremely unique explaining a topic that the Christian may never hear from any preacher or pulpit in today’s modern age. Even though Cawdrey preached it 400 years ago it is exceedingly relevant in our day, and biblically powerful. His second sermon is on the topic of hypocrisy called, “A Close Hypocrite Discovered,” from Luke 18:11, “God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican,” and he ties this masterfully into 1 Corinthians 13:6, “Love rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth together with the truth.” His last sermon is against antinomian sentiments called, “The Lawfulness of Doing Good out of Hope of Reward.” It springs from Hebrews 6:19, “Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, sure and steadfast, and entering into that which is within the veil,” and 2 John 1:8, “That we may receive a full reward,” where he covers hope, love and faith. It serves to demonstrate what true hope is and how it is grounded in a biblical love to Christ.

This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.

About the author

Daniel Cawdrey (1588-1664) was a Calvinistic Presbyterian minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was a man of great consideration, eminently learned, and a noted member of the Westminster Assembly. He preached sometimes to the members of parliament…was ejected from his living at Great Billing, and separated from his friends and his flock by the Act of Uniformity, after having labored, for the edification of his people in that place for 37 years. He was among the best puritan scholars of his day.

Not every Christian should go to seminary, but there are certain teachings of the Bible that every Christian must know. Theology is important because what we believe affects how we live. Whether you're a relatively new believer in Jesus or a mature Christian looking for a better understanding of basics of the faith, Christian Beliefs is for you.

This readable guide to twenty basic Christian beliefs is a condensation of Wayne Grudem's award-winning book Systematic Theology, prized by pastors and teachers everywhere. He and his son, Elliot, have boiled down the essentials of Christian theology for the layperson and made them both clear and applicable to life. You will learn about the Bible, the characteristics of God, what it means that we are created in the image of God, what God has done for us in Christ, the purpose of the church, and much more. Each chapter includes questions for personal review or group discussion.

"These truly are twenty basic beliefs that every Christian should know. Wayne Grudem is a master teacher with the ability to explain profound truths in simple language. He is a man of deep conviction and theological passion--and those who read this book will be both educated and encouraged in the faith."

--R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

"Based on Systematic Theology, this summary will certainly help beginners with Christ to get the hang of their faith."

--J. I. Packer, Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia

"As Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology contracts into a compact book, I do not lose my enthusiasm for the truth he loves and the clarity of his words."

--John Piper, Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota

This work by Vinet is one of the most quoted volumes in the history of teaching ministers the science of homiletics. Homiletics is the study of sermon preparation and preaching the Word of God with boldness, faithfulness and precision. The office of the Evangelical Ministry consists of different elements, among which the Word of God has the predominance. The Christian religion, the religion of liberty and persuasion, is a word. Jesus Christ, who is at once the Author and the Object of Christianity, is called the Word (John 1:1). The Word is the pastor’s great instrument. The minister speaks either on the part of man to God, or on the part of God to man; in doing the first he prays, in doing the second he preaches. It is of the second that this work treats.

The Word is of the highest importance, and a minister is essentially a man who heralds the Word of God. This act of preaching has been reduced down into a teachable art. It gives preachers eloquence in their preaching if the rules of homiletics are faithfully followed, and as they are biblically solidified. The nature of ecclesiastical discourse involves differences from regular public speaking, and adds specific biblical rules which constitute a particular art under the name of Homiletics.

Here the minister, if he is to preach the Word of God effectively, and for the glory of Christ, would be required to master his language, gestures, looks, etc., in order to be more eloquent in faithfully, biblically and precisely preaching the Word of God to the people of God. Eloquence in this way is a gift, and a gift of the soul. It is the gift of thinking and feeling with others as they think and feel, and of suiting to their thought the words and the movement of the minister’s biblical discourse; of preaching the thoughts of God.

This volume constitutes one of the greatest courses on homiletics given in the history of the Christian church. It would serve any minister well who desires to faithfully feed his flock in both the act of sermon preparation and preaching from the pulpit.
