The Gospel Preacher (volume 2)is a collection of 21 full-text sermons by Benjamin Franklin (a preacher from the 1800's, the great-great-great nephew of the American forefather whose face appears on the $100 bill). Each sermon averages about 18 pages. This was published in 1877. Note: volume 1 can be found here.
A Quote from one of the sermons:
Stop and consider the situation: The number of the disciples together, on the day the Spirit descended from heaven to inspire the apostles, and guide them into all truth, was about one hundred and twenty. Viewing them from the worldly side, and thinking of them simply as men and women, with a human system, what prospect was there of their success? True, they had a commission from the Nazarene, to "go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." But then, if we deny his divinity, and regard him simply as a man, an illiterate Nazarene, a carpenter, and the son of a carpenter, a commission from him amounted to nothing. In that view of it, there was nothing in a commission from him to give them any power or influence. It would have been wiser, on their part, never to have mentioned his name. They had no talent of any note themselves, no popularity among the people, no influence, learning or money; they had not a meeting-house in the world; not a college, a school; not a worldly prestige of any sort. What think you of the prospect of their rising?
