This anthology brings together in one volume fifteen classic sermons by some of Princeton Theological Seminary’s most acclaimed faculty and theologians. The Princeton Pulpit includes the work of Charles Hodge, Archibald Alexander, J. Addison Alexander, and more. More devotional than doctrinal, each sermon is headlined with the Scripture being expounded, such as Acts 9, Titus 2:6, and 1 Timothy 3:16. Containing practical application and timeless themes, these sermons still pack a powerful punch more than one hundred years after this volume was first published.
