Listened to by huge congregations in Britain, and perhaps the most recognizable British Methodist voice in the mid-twentieth century, W. E. Sangster was, in anyone's estimation, a giant of Methodism. "A preacher without peer in the world," "a prince of preachers," are just two of the labels attached to this preacher/theologian of the Methodist tradition. This volume captures the preaching of Sangster in his prime, on the occasion of the 1956 World Methodist Conference in Junaluska, North Carolina. Cheatle's research brings into the public domain ten sermons, nine previously unpublished in this form, delivered by Sangster at that great gathering of World Methodism. These sermons, being transcripts from recordings, picked up Sangster "in the raw," at his most powerful, engaging with his listeners. This book is a resource, therefore, that aids students of homiletics and pastors in encountering a master at work, without the editorial polish of his extant sermons. The sermons on aspects of Christian holiness would be Sangster's first and last sequential series on the subject, placing before the reader some of his most mature thought on holiness and its application in daily life.
Andrew J. Cheatle is Senior Lecturer in Theology and Pastoral Theology at Liverpool Hope University. He also serves as a University Pastor. His previous writings on Sangster include W. E. Sangster: Herald of Holiness (2010) and W. E. Sangster: Heir of John Wesley? (2013). Before becoming an academic he held pastorates in Copenhagen, Denmark, and Manchester, England.
