Product Description
Sermons from Second Corinthians Harold John Ockenga had not yet reached his fortieth birthday when he preached this series of sermons as pastor of Boston's historic Park Street Church. Already widely recognized as one of America's premier preachers, he invited his congregation to join him in a careful study of Second Corinthians and its application to their daily lives. Today's readers will find these sermons as timely and relevant as they were for those who originally heard them preached. ""Every Sunday during my undergraduate and graduate years at Harvard, I joined many others from all walks of life who flocked to Park Street Church in Boston to hear Harold Ockenga preach God's word. I listened eagerly to his persuasive, erudite, and evangelistic expositions of biblical books. Whenever he began to preach, the very atmosphere seemed to become electrified with the power of God's truth. This particular set of sermons on 2 Corinthians displays his characteristic fidelity to the inerrant Bible, his winsome but no-nonsense exposure of bad theologies and biased critical methods, and his keen sense of how to identify the major themes of a passage with balanced attention to both its component parts and its practical thrust. These sermons have lost none of their relevance. They will challenge your mind and enrich your zeal for God. Especially, they will help you to value the ways that God is our great comfort in all circumstances."" --Doug Stuart, Professor of Old Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Harold John Ockenga (1905-1985) studied at Taylor University, Princeton Theological Seminary, Westminster Theological Seminary, and the University of Pittsburgh. From 1931 to 1936 he served as pastor at Point Breeze Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, and from 1936 to 1969 as senior minister at historic Park Street Church in Boston. From his base at Park Street he rose to international prominence, becoming one of the most recognized leaders of the resurgent evangelical movement that swept across America and around the world during the 1940s and 1950s.
