Henry Smith (1550-1600) was a zealous and eloquent Puritan divine educated in Lincoln College, Oxford. He was well versed in the Holy Scriptures, religious, devout in character discreet and temperate in his behavior, had a humble spirit, an upright heart, and was filled with fervent zeal for the glory of God and for the welfare of souls. He was generally esteemed as the first great preacher in the nation, and was looked upon as the “silver-tongued preacher” due to his lucid memory and practical preaching.
This volume entitled, “The Calling, Rebellion and Punishment of Jonah, and Other Sermons,” demonstrates Smith’s keen intellect and practical observations in four sermons on the Prophet Jonah, as well as twenty-six other sermons on various subjects such as contentment, temptation, pride, righteousness and the way to heaven. Also is included a number of morning and evening prayers, and other short works that demonstrate the truths of Jesus Christ contained in the Holy Scriptures. All of these works have been updated to reflect modern language without losing Smith’s eloquence or power in preaching. This work is a must read for lovers of Puritanism, practical preaching and biblical doctrine.
