THE Rev. Dr. DANIEL BAKER, of Texas, has been a devoted and experimental preacher of the Gospel for many years, and perhaps no minister has been more blessed in his labours during the present century. This volume embraces some of the most popular and effective sermons preached by him during his recent tour in the Southern and South-Western States; when, as the result of little more than three months labour, in which he cordially cooperated with the pastors of the churches that he visited, more than six hundred persons, as it is believed, were converted unto God, of whom more than two-thirds were males, and not a few professional men. Also a number of young men, many of whom have already commenced a course of study, with a view ultimately to preach the gospel.
The following Sermons have no necessary connexion with the first series, contained in another volume, published in the year
1846. Each volume is complete by itself, though the two are fit companions for each other.
The present series of Sermons, together with those embraced in the first series, are selected from some five hundred Sermons, which the author, during his long ministry, has prepared with great care. They can scarcely fail of being eminently profitable to the Church of Christ and to the souls of men. They address the understanding as well as the heart, and bring prominently to view those precious truths which the Spirit of God has been wont, in all ages, to make effectual to salvation.
