Foreword by Sinclair Ferguson.


Professor John Murray (1898-1975) was recognized in his own lifetime as one of the leading Reformed theologians in the English-speaking world. He spent most of his distinguished career teaching systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. A careful scholar, an eloquent lecturer, a moving preacher, and the author of many outstanding articles and books, Murray's driving passions were to declare Christ's Word, advance his cause, and bless his people.


"I still remember the first time I heard a recording of a John Murray sermon and its impact upon me. I was a young Christian with a growing sense of God's call to preach. This sermon was the clincher. Never before had I encountered such a unique combination of careful exegesis, profound theology, fresh insight, clear expression, and spiritual application. It inspired me with a vision of how glorious Reformed, experiential preaching could be. May this beautiful collection of Murray's sermons touch and motivate a new generation of preachers and revive those who have lost sight of their high calling."
--David Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

"John Murray enjoys a well-deserved reputation as a keen biblical and systematic theologian. With the publication for the first time of this collection of his sermons, the homiletical fruit of Murray's exegetical and theological insights will also be gratefully acknowledged. Just as Calvin's exegetical and theological work bore fruit in sermons that were faithful in the exposition and application of biblical texts, so we witness the same in Murray's sermons. Readers of these sermons will find them rich in gospel content, Christ-centered in focus, and urgent in their summons to faith in Christ. If the surest test and most important fruit of a careful reading of Scripture are its homiletical payoff, Murray's sermons are more than equal to the challenge."
--Cornelis Venema, President & Professor of Doctrinal Studies, Mid-America Reformed Seminary

"The apostle Paul's spiritual nutrition plan offers two basic food groups: meat and milk. Readers of these sermons will be in no doubt as to which Professor Murray served for his Sunday dinners. A bite-sized sample from any paragraph would prove the point. The marvel is that everything that belongs to Christ becomes the possession of the person who is united to him. Christ's righteousness is not simply something that grounds the justifying act of God, but it's something that demands the justifying action of God. There will never be a John Murray for the masses, and yet the gospel preached in these pages is just the food that seasoned saints, hungry sinners, and thoughtful reading groups most clearly need."
--Chad Van Dixhoorn, Chancellors Professor of Historical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Washington, DC

"John Murray was a great man. Everything he wrote was done with great care, precision, and thoughtfulness. These sermons are hidden gems, now in view for us, especially pastors and theology students to appreciate. Honestly, if John Murray wrote a grocery list I'd read it; so when he writes on such magnificent topics there isn't any good reason not to read him."
--Mark Jones, Minister, Faith Vancouver Presbyterian Church

"What a gift these collected sermons of John Murray are to preachers and Bible students! Here, the great Westminster professor's lucid voice is heard in stirring tones, both unfolding doctrine and stimulating doxology. And it is no surprise that Murray's consistent focus is Christ in the glory of his person and work and the blessing of union with Christ in faith. Reformed Christians should read everything Murray has written, and this small corpus of sermons demands our attention and thanksgiving."
--Rick Phillips, Senior Minister, Second Presbyterian Church, Greenville, SC

"It would be impossible for me to overstate the influence of John Murray on me as a young man; his writings were crucial to my embracing the Reformed faith. Now his sermons in print will surely stimulate the mind, warm the heart, and edify the spirit of a new generation and prompt us all to adore the majesty of God and glory in Christ Jesus."
--Liam Goligher, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, PA
