Hannibal Gammon (1585-1674) was a puritan minister of the Gospel, and an active member of the Westminster Assembly. He is one of the most powerful puritan preachers currently reprinted for today’s church.
Gammon is among the best preachers of the word of God practically applied that you will ever read. In this volume are collected his only surviving three works which, in their varied subject matter, draw the Christian closer to the Lord Jesus Christ.
His first sermon is, “God’s Just Desertion of the Unjust,” (from Revelation 22:11), showing that it is a comfort to the godly to be mercifully confirmed in holiness, and it is a terror to the wicked to be justly suffered to go on in his wickedness.
His second sermon is, “The Praise of a Godly Woman,” (from Proverbs 31:30) where he shows that “praise” is a debt that must be paid to those who have the true, “fear of the Lord.” The fear of the Lord is the truest nobility, the noblest grace, that can ennoble and extol a man or a woman. Such should be praised for it by man, and by God.
His third sermon is, “God’s Smiting to Amendment or to Revengement,” (from Isaiah 1:5), where he shows what reasons God uses for professing believers when he strikes them justly for their sin. This is a serious call to true repentance, and those who do not repent spit in the face of God, and revel in self-love. With this, God will be severe. God is great in mercies when he strikes us to this end: that we should sin no more.
In each of these three sermons, Gammon’s exposition is by far the best treatment on all three subjects. These are works to read and pray through, looking for God to be merciful to further transform the Christian into the image of Jesus Christ.
