Product Description

This volume of his sermons gives a glimpse into the heart of a true shepherd. The LORD promised through the Prophet Jeremiah that He would raise up shepherds after His own heart who would feed His people with knowledge and understanding. Such a shepherd was J.W. Alexander.

Charles Hodge said of him, "No minister in our Church was a more accomplished scholar. (But) the pulpit was his appropriate sphere. While he was not the first of all orators to hear on rare occasions, he was the first of preachers to sit under, month after month and year after year."

"None of the articles which make up this book belong to the class of Occasional Discourses; all are such as came up in the routine of a common ministry. They are intentionally miscellaneous, and several of the numbers are recent, as having been preached during the late blessed awakening. It is my humble and hearty prayer, that God would vouchsafe, by his Holy Spirit, to make them useful." - From the Author's Preface

James W. Alexander (1804–1859) was the oldest son of Archibald Alexander, served as a professor at Princeton Theological Seminary, and became one of the most famous Presbyterian preachers of his generation.



"Dr. James W. Alexander's sermons are masterpieces of biblical, doctrinal, experiential, and practical preaching rolled into one. Here is preaching at its best—shepherding the hearts of believers, challenging unbelievers to flee to Calvary, and praising the majestic, gracious Triune God. A Shepherd's Heart helps fill today's void of solid sermon material so prevalent today, and shows how penetrating good, timeless preaching can be. Buy and read, and let your soul delight itself in life-shaping truth." - Joel R. Beeke
