This isn’t just an expositional commentary, it’s a teaching tool with 21 volumes and 40 megabytes of text. It’s a goldmine for experienced preachers, but it’s also an excellent aid for inexperienced preachers who might still need someone to walk them through a biblical text and help them expound upon it.
Charles Simeon was one of the most prominent evangelical clergymen in the Church of England in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries. He was known both for his passion for mission and his extraordinary biblical preaching. But when Simeon looked at the clergy around him he saw men who were often unable to preach well. They either preached poor sermons or they parroted the sermons published by others. Simeon’s passion for preaching drove him to collect and publish his own sermons, preached from Genesis to Revelation and spanning fifty-four years of ministry.
But he didn’t simply publish manuscripts or transcripts of his sermons. Simeon wanted a tool that would both encourage good preaching and that would train good preachers by giving them the skills they needed. To that end, Simeon published what he calls “skeletons” rather than full sermon texts. He begins by laying out the main points or divisions of the biblical text, which he then shows the preacher how to flesh out and expand. He includes copious biblical cross-references as well as excellent aids to practical application. His method is best seen in his use of three dashes (“— — —”) found throughout the text. This is Simeon’s way of saying, “I’ve walked you through the text, I’ve pointed you in the right direction, now you flesh it out in your own words.”
