How often it is that you do not find physical energy indicative of spiritual power! If a clear head is worth more than one dizzy with perpetual vertigo—if muscles with the play of health in them are worth more than those drawn up in chronic “rheumatics”—if an eye quick to catch passing objects is better than one with vision dim and uncertain—then God will require of us efficiency just in proportion to what he has given us. Physical energy ought to be a type of moral power. We ought to have as good digestion of truth as we have capacity to assimilate food. Our spiritual hearing ought to be as good as our physical hearing. Our spiritual taste ought to be as clear as our tongue. Samsons in body, we ought to be giants in moral power.
This compilation of 32 sermons offers some unusual themes like: Brawn and Muscle, The Pleiades and the Orion, The Queen’s Visit, The Lord’s Razor, The Road to the City, The Banished Queen, Despotism of the Needle and the Congratulations of Heaven.
These sermons set forth evangelical truths in an orderly, vivid and picturesque manner. Talmage presents his expositions into concrete forms and abounds in illustrations and explanations.
Thomas De Witt Talmage (1832-1902) was born in New Jersey in 1832. He attended the University of New York, studied law for a brief time, and finally decided to enter the ministry. He studied theology at the New Brunswick Theological Seminary and began preaching in New Jersey and New York in 1856. In 1869, Talmage accepted an offer to pastor the Central Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn, New York and then later at the First Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C.. Following his service as pastor, Talmage took up editing Christian magazines and journals, including: Christian at Work, Advance, Frank Leslie’s Sunday Magazine, and the Christian Herald. In addition to his editorial work, Talmage put to paper his sermons and several other writings; all of which are said to have reached over 25,000,000 readers.
