Salvation in Full Color
Edited by Richard Owen Roberts

Powerful sermons on the doctrines of grace were common during America's Great Awakening. Drawn from the works of the Awakening's leading figures, these twenty sermons, each with a biographical sketch of its author, are arranged in the order they affect the individual. Originally delivered from the pulpit as messages to common congregations, they still speak profoundly today, not just to theologians but to ordinary people. Carrying an immense moral force, these sermons will help each believer better understand what God has given them in Christ and cannot help but to draw them into a stronger relationship with Him.

From the Introduction: "These precious truths are too valuable to be received with a grunt or a shrug of the shoulders. The sermons in this book mightily affected people of the past. Let them affect you today. They deal with issues of life and death. Your own soul's welfare is at stake. I beg of you, do not reject these messages because they are too sever, or because they thought processes of the preachers are difficult to follow, or because they are different from anything you have read before. The men who preached these sermons were God-honoring and God-honored men. Their love of Scripture and accuracy in its use is clearly evidenced by the almost countless references they make to the Bible in every sermon. They lived in a wiser and saner time than now, and therefore, what they said is of vastly greater consequence than the prattlings of most of our modern preachers who are significantly responsible for the sordid condition of the church today."

From Samuel Davies's “Repentance”: "It is not the filling of churches but, rather, the filling of a kingdom that is to the glory of God. And it is this that we desire from this generation: that Thou, O God, would grant also that we might be given grace and honor Thee. Heavenly Father, grant that we might learn something about the birth of such a cry. If we began to give only the slightest hint of a cry, then He would begin to hear us... What joyful anticipation there is in heaven now!... Are we still refusing to consider these things? Do we have warmth towards those who seek revival?"
