Great Characters Of The Bible: by- Clarence E. Macartney
As a master of biographical preaching, Dr. Clarence Macartney takes well-known and not-so-well-known characters from both the Old and New Testaments and discovers valuable lessons in their stories.
Included are sermons on:
- The Man Who Forgot”—the chief butler
- The Destiny of Jesus”—Simeon
- Ruined by Prosperity”—Uzziah
- Mortal Error, Immortal Truth”-Herod the Great
In examining Herod the Great, Dr. Macartney observes, “Sometimes this conflict between Herod and Jesus is localized in a single heart. Each one of us has within him a natural Herod who is opposed to Christ. He waits to resist in us every influence of God’s Holy Spirit. … But greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
These sermons contain a wealth of illustrations and quotations that will deepen the reader’s insight and appreciation of biblical truth and provide the pastor and speaker with a thought-provoking resource for sermon preparation.
