Cambridge and Other Sermons (Paperback)
First published in 1898, this collection of sermons by the Irish-born Cambridge biblical scholar and theologian F. J. A. Hort distils over thirty years' work as a pastor. Compiled by the author's son six years after Hort's death, this book contains twenty-four sermons, organised to correspond with the Church calendar. Written for school children, Cambridge college chapels, and the congregation of Hort's own parish in Hertfordshire, many of the sermons in this collection were delivered on more than one occasion and have consequently been revised many times. As Hort's son points out, they appear here in their 'ultimate form', perfected over three decades. First preached over a century ago, Hort's lucid prose makes his work easily accessible. Written in deceptively simple language, the care and precision found in Hort's better-known academic work are also evident in his sermons, which are articulated with grace and clarity.
