“Discovering hitherto unpublished sermons by John Murray is the equivalent of finding buried treasure. To those who know John Murrays writings, this book requires no recommendation. Borrowing a phrase from another context, this book is self- authenticating. But to those who are not familiar with his name and reputation, these sermons represent the very finest sermonic material. Every word, carefully chosen; every argument, carefully analyzed. A book to read and re-read. Treasure indeed!”

Derek Thomas Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, SC

“If preaching is, as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones described it, logic on fire, then this collection of sermons by Dr. John Murray is a furnace ablaze with iron-tempering wisdom. And it is a conflagration that consumes human folly while imparting truth with white-hot clarity and disarming simplicity. I found myself involuntarily and yet audibly responding to these sermons with little outbursts: Yes! Thats it! Ouch! That hurts so good! The true mark of wisdom is to ably say much with few carefully selected words. This collection is then true wisdom in preaching. The weight and wonder of each sermon almost forbids that one read them one after the other. You must push back from the table and rest the soul before you partake of more than one at a time. One is seated here before a feast of biblical delight! Savor it! Slowly taste it and deeply digest! There are sentences and even whole paragraphs that seem to me impossible to perfect. They are as poetically beautiful as they are theologically precise. If one thinks my words are hyperbolic or dramatic, that merely proves you have not yet read this outstanding collection.”
