About this title
Synopsis:Phillips Brooks (1835–1893), best known today as the author of the Christmas carol “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” has been called the greatest American preacher of the nineteenth century. Yet his magnificent sermons, which brought standing-room-only crowds to Trinity Church in Boston, have long been out of print. “The Consolations of God” gathers twelve of Brooks’s best sermons, allowing a new generation of readers to be touched by the man who, says Peter Gomes in the book’s foreword, “was always destined to be our contemporary.” As exemplified by the volume’s title sermon, Brooks’s messages are illuminating expressions of faith that still retain a robust relevance for Christian life and spirituality.
