Author: Jowett, John Henry (1864-1923)
Sometimes we just need a pick-me-up. This
collection of sermons by John Henry Jowett is perfect for
believers who need a little joy in their lives. Each
sermon is based on a Bible verse, and Jowett speaks on the cheerful
aspects of the passage. Themes include the light of God, manna in the
desert, Isaiah 40:31 ("They shall mount up with wings as eagles"), and
resting in God. Jowett manages to preach happy and chipper sermons
without sounding insincere or naive. These messages are a shining ray
of hope in a dark world where Christians so often preach doom and gloom.
Here readers will find comfort for everyday problems and assurance that
something greater lies beyond this life.
