Phillips Brooks (1835_1893), best known today as the author of the Christmas carol "O Little Town of Bethlehem," has been called the greatest American preacher of the nineteenth century. Yet his magnificent sermons, which brought standing-room-only crowds to Trinity Church in Boston, have long been out of print. "The Consolations of God" gathers twelve of Brooks's best sermons, allowing a new generation of readers to be touched by the man who, says Peter Gomes in the book's foreword, "was always destined to be our contemporary." As exemplified by the volume's title sermon, Brooks's messages are illuminating expressions of faith that still retain a robust relevance for Christian life and spirituality.

Best known today as the author of the Christmas carol "O Little Town of Bethlehem, " Phillips Brooks (1835-1893) has been called the greatest American preacher of the nineteenth century. Yet his magnificent sermons, which brought standing room only crowds to Trinity Church in Boston, have been out of print and hard to find for many years. Now his illuminating words are available again in this collection of ten of his finest works, allowing modern readers to be touched by the man whom editor Ellen Wilbur describes as "a poet of a speaker, but more than that a man whose loftiness of mind and heart shone through his words in such a way it made it easy to imagine rooms of hushed, uplifted people pinned on him, as much astonished by the man as by his teachings."
