I just posted the following review on G. Campbell Morgan's "The Message of Malachi for the Men of Today."

http://www.biblesupp...f-todaytopxexe/



I highly recommend this short book, Malachi's Message for the Men of Today. It has 131 pages that are packed with good spiritual nourishment. I have been richly blessed in reading it, more than I thought I would. I never really had a grasp on the message of Malachi though I have listened to many sermons. I was reading in a forum on another website about G Campbell Morgan so I thought that I would check him out. I choose this one to begin with and I can hardly wait to get into more of his materials. I would encourage our module builders to consider formatting more of his books.

Morgan begins opening up Malachi in the very first chapter and it just gets better and better as you progress through the book. When you come to the last chapter you will want more. Fortunately we have some other modules to dig into. For me though I think that first I will read this one all over again. I am sure that there are things I have overlooked in my first reading. In this module he takes you though the book of Malachi and as the title indicates shows us that it is a message for us today. He expands on verses in Malachi by bringing out rich treasues from other parts of the Scriptures - both old and new testaments.

Thank-you Module Robot for giving us this treasure.

SF,

My friend PMarsh1953 is responsible for building most/all of the GCM modules currently in existence. We have 13 of them listed at http://www.DoctorDaveT.com - but they are arranged expositionally/doctrinally, and not alphabetically by author. The titles are:
  • Discipleship
  • God's Perfect Will
  • Malachi's Message to the Men of Today
  • Paul's Epistle to the Romans
  • The Acts of the Apostles
  • The Crises of the Christ
  • The Gospel According to John
  • The Gospel According to Mark
  • The Gospel According to Matthew
  • The Great Physician
  • The Life of the Christian
  • The Parables of the Kingdom
  • The Teaching of Christ
There is a very nice website that includes more of GCM's books in readable/scannable .pdf format. It would be a good place to start for someone who was interested in learning how to create modules. The site is http://gcampbellmorgan.com/books.html. Anyone interested in learning how to create .topx modules can contact me, or I'm sure Josh Bond (this site owner) would be willing to help, too.

Like you, I think his works are very good. I'm quite grateful to the Lord (and Miss Pamela!) for having these 13 works available for study.

May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

Thanks Dave and DSaw for your help. Internet Archive also has alot of material by G Morgan Campbell including 10 volumes of the Analyzed Bible and Volume 1 of the Living Messages of the Books of the Bible (covering the old testament). http://archive.org/s...ll), 1863-1945" I have not been able to locate volume 2 (the new testament). I think most of the materials in The Living Messages may be very similar to what is in the Analyzed Bible.

Any help that you, Josh or others could provide regarding making esword modules would be very much appreciated. I have attempted to work on some modules but I am so slow at it and I am sure there are more efficient methods. At some point I would like to put together a complete library of Morgan's materials. My email is zat4vey6@gmail.com.

God Bless.

Here is something that I have come across regarding G. Campbell Morgan. He was voted number 6 of the ten greatest preachers of the twentieth century by Preaching Magazine http://www.preaching...icles/11565635/


6. G. Campbell Morgan (1863-1945) http://www.preaching...1565635/page-7/

Called by many "the prince of expositors," G. Campbell Morgan helped influence the shape of evangelical preaching on both sides of the Atlantic. Born in England, raised in Wales, Morgan lacked formal education but his absolute confidence in scripture made him an avid student and interpreter of the Word.

This skilled expository preacher served several English congregations before an itinerant ministry in the U.S. (1901-1904). From 1904 to 1917 he served as pastor of London's Westminster Chapel, a church which experienced unparalleled growth under his leadership. Following more years in America, Morgan returned to Westminister Chapel in 1933 (at age 69) and served for a decade during one of the most dangerous periods of Britain's history.

Morgan's love of the Bible shone through his sermons, which were carefully prepared and then presented with an anointed intensity. His successor as pastor of Westminster Chapel, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, said of Morgan that "preaching was the supreme passion of his life."

"The first and best advise I ever received on the subject of preparing a sermon recalled the fundamental design of G. Campbell Morgan's expository method: "Read the text. Read it again and again. Read it 25 to 50 times. The whole book. In context. Only then will you understand the text and be ready to preach it." Though I didn't know it then, that recommendation expressed the expositional approach to preaching the Bible that Morgan practiced, a model that has influenced thousands of theologically conservative Bible teachers and preachers.

Campbell died four years before I was born. I never heard him preach. Yet because the influence of his popular preaching, extensive itinerant teaching, and prolific writing still lives, I feel as if I have heard him time and again in the sermons of others. They have studied the text in context, analyzed, synthesized, and expounded the truth of Scripture with clear and compelling arguments. That's the model of preaching I grew up on and have tried to master.

Two stories about Morgan have especially influenced me. The first was how he was rejected for formal ministry because his preaching showed so little potential. In the dark days that followed his father reminded him, "rejected on earth ... accepted in heaven." God will be the final judge of our gift. What a relief. What a challenge. Second, when his studies in theology and science led to doubts about the truth of the Scriptures, Campbell put away all his books except The Book. His primary text and tool became the Bible. The Bible, first and foremost, gives authority to what we proclaim. God's ideas, not mine. What a relief. What a challenge.

While changing times demand changing styles of preaching, the first and best advise to any preacher remains, "read the text." (Timothy S. Warren, Professor of Pastoral Ministries, Dallas Theological Seminary)
