The vitality and burning conviction of this native Scot led many to liken him to his namesake. He became well known to millions through the writings of his wife Catherine. These sermons were preached from his pulpit at Washington, DC's New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, and the prayers were given in the U. S. Senate, where he was the beloved and inspired chaplain from 1938-49. OCT 2005

I love this collection of sermons and prayers by Peter Marshall. I incorporated them into my daily quiet time, and was so encouraged and blessed by each of them. It's no wonder Marshall was drew such crowds when he preached. He obviously has a God-given gift for sharing the Word.

Favorite sermons:

- The Rock that Moved
- Keepers of the Springs
- The Saint of Rank and File

Favorite quotes:

"The oyster has leaned - by the will of God - to turn grains of sand into pearls, cruel misfortunes into blessings . . . pain and distress into beauty. And that is the lesson that we are to learn along this pilgrim way. The grace of God, which is sufficient, will enable us to make of our troubles the pearls they can become. It is not mere figure of speech. It is something more than a simile to say that one enters Heaven through pearly gates. One enters into the presence of the Lord through gates bedecked with pearls, and every pearl - a trouble, a pain, a heartache, a misfortune, which, by the grace of God, has been changed into a beautiful, lovely thing."

"It is a far, far better thing in the realm of morals to be old fashioned than to be ultramodern.
The world has enough women who know how to hold their cocktails, who have lost all their illusions and their faith. The world has enough women who know how to be smarts. It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men too, who would rather be morally right than socially correct." ( )

You can heard Peter Marshall's voice while reading these sermons. He had such a heart for God and God's people. Even though these sermons are over 60 years old they still resonate with the ills of man and society that exist today. ( )

This volume, as no similar book I have read, makes the preacher come alive on its pages.

From time to time there arises a man (Dr. Marshall) out of whom shines forth a radiant enthusiasm for the best in human life.
added by ArrowStead | editThe New York Times
 
There is pungency, wit, and sometimes such beauty that a phrase has to be read and re-read several times until the whole of it caresses you.
