Ryle and Whitefield, a good combination I am always looking for good books for my kindle - cheap. This one was actually free on Amazon. As I read it, I felt I had to narrate it as well. So now it is a free audio-book as well. But I can't generate interest in good books. Either church history appeals to SermonAudio listeners, or it doesn't. But if it does, I recommend looking up Curt Daniel's History of Calvinism and all Joe Morecraft's history lectures here as well. What a gold mine. T M S www.puritanaudiobooks.com

Great Sermon! An absolutely awesome and inspiring sermon. I thank our Lord God for men like George Whitefield.God was certainly working through him. Thank you very much Sermon Audio for these sermons. God bless.
The Torments of Hell Are Exceeding Great, Edwards Thanks for the insightful comment Tom! More free biblical resources (free MP3s) on Hell are at http://ow.ly/l5RvD "Hell: Shocking Free Sermons, Videos, Books (Printed and Digital) & Much More By Edward Donnelly, Jonathan Edwards, Christopher Love, John Bunyan & Others" and at http://ow.ly/l5Sfe "Terrifying Sermons About Hell By Dr. Don Kistler (Free MP3s & Video)". "And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." - Matthew 25:46, KJV
Terrible even by Edwards's standards This sermon is about 25 minutes longer than the famous sermon "sinners." Often Edwards is excused by his biographers because some people only know him as the preacher of hell-fire. (Ralph Turnbull, J Edwards the Preacher, 1958)But there is no escaping that this doctrine received a priority with Edwards maybe unequaled in no other author. He wrote that if he represented the truth as WORSE than it in fact is, he is very much to be blamed, but if he only held forth more light, the reality was infinitely more dreadful than he could represent it. The picture of a brick-kiln alone in this sermon gives an idea so awful it is almost overwhelming if in any proper degree duly comprehended. But he builds layer upon layer of an awful reality that no one in this life can meditate on with any degree of complacency, only with terror. 2 Cor. 5:11 The wicked who hear it must either be convicted or enraged, it would be impossible to be indifferent.
Good introduction. This was a blessed sermon, explaining the place of this Psalm in Christian experience: why we need to study this Psalm. It shows 4 wrong attitudes toward the teaching in this Psalm.
Puritan Wit Yesterday I was listening to a narration from Alleine's Alarm to the Unconverted. What a book from someone who never saw his 37th b-day. He wrote, "If the irrational and inanimate creatures had speech and reason, they would cry out under it, as a bondage insufferable, to be abused by the ungodly, contrary to their natures and the ends which the great Creator made them for. It is a saying of an eminent divine, 'The liquor that the drunkard drinks, if it had reason, like a man, to know how shamefully it is abused, would groan in the barrel against him, it would groan in the cup against him, groan in his throat, in his stomach against him; it would fly in his face, if it could speak. And if God should open the mouths of His creatures, as He did the mouth of Balaam's donkey, the proud man's garment on his back would groan against him. There is not a creature, if it had reason to know how it is abused until a man is convertedâ€”but would groan against him. The land would groan to bear him, the air would groan to give him breath, their houses would groan to lodge them, their beds would groan to ease them, their food to nourish them, their clothes to cover them, and the creature would groan to give them any help and comfort, so long as they live in sin against God.'"
Covenant Teaching God's Covenant is a sovereign relationship of grace. God reveals Himself by Covenant to His elect. Christ is the Mediator of the Covenant. This is an excellect teaching on the Covenant, how it affects the Family in baptism as the NT sign and seal, and where it all originates in Genesis 17.
The terms of the Covenant were laid down in the OT and they have not been repealed in the NT. This simple fact is very important.
Rev Price brings a good teaching on Covenant in this message. Thankyou!
Needed Teaching Why do bad things happen?
Is God sovereign over your life, my life the world? Who is really in control?
Today as Christians we ask many questions about the direction which our nation and the world is going. Greg Price provides a necessary and timely message that God has a Plan, and eternal plan for your life and your nation.
Listen to this positive message and and be blessed.
Thank you Rev Price.
Pink is thorough The section on Man's Fall in Thomas Boston's Fourfold State is about 110 pages. Not since Thomas Goodwin's work, Man's Guiltiness Before God, has there been a book as thorough on discussing the effects of the fall. I can even compare Pink to Edwards such as Edwards "Men Are Naturally God's Enemies" and conclude that there may not have been an author in the 20th century who so thoroughly drove home the point of innate enmity, Romans 8:7
In a letter to his brother Charles in June 1766, the Arminian evangelist John Wesley, now in his sixties, wrote, "I do not love God. I never did. Therefore I never believed, in the Christian sense of the word. ... I never had any other evidence of the eternal or invisible world than I have now; and that is none at all, unless such as faintly shines from reasonâ€™s glimmering ray. I have no direct witness (I do not say, that I am a child of God, but) of anything invisible or eternal." See the SWRB blog on SermonAudio at http://ow.ly/kk2wt or http://www.sermonaudio.com/new_details3.asp?ID=13559 for more context for the quote above, as well more information on other surprising and disturbing beliefs held by John Wesley. For example, you will see that "Wesley taught that unconverted Muslims and other heathen will be accepted by God on the basis of their good works" and also wrote, "Prayer for the dead, the faithful departed, in the advocacy of which I conceive myself clearly justified."
Hey Hilary looks like you're the only one here posting on this. So I thought I'd intrude just to say "Oh dear! Oh dear!" Where d'ya get that Whitefield was more entertaining and popular or that Wesley produced more genuine converts?
D'ya read much? Please supply chapter and verse from your authorities. Thanks.
Its unfortunate people are very biased towards a minister who preaches a type of doctrine they support.
George Whitefield was indeed an entertaining and great minister of the Word who preached to many people but being popular does not mean being the most effective. John Wesley - love him or hate him - was a great minister of the Word who won more souls for Jesus Christ than Whitefield.
Wesley had a more effective way of producing genuine converts than Whitefield mainly because of his Christian perfectionism doctrine (Matthew 5:48; 1 Thessalonians 5:23)
The greatest evangelist in history is obviously D.L. Moody, followed by John Wesley, then others
God is love, His offer for salvation is open to every soul in the world. If anyone repents of their sin and believes in Jesus they shall be saved.
The issue is that people are desperately wicked; they love darkness. God knew all along who would repent & accept this offer of salvation and who would reject it so He wrote it in the Lamb's Book of life (Rev 13:8) before the beginning.
