Many modern evangelicals are not familiar with this great saint and evangelical expositor Charles Simeon and will be blessed by taking a few moments to read Dr John Piper's brief but pithy biographical sketch of Simeon's life. Once you begin to understand the depth of Simeon's godly character, you will very likely want to read some of his sermons! (Click the following link to Read Piper's sketch of Charles Simeon's life entitled "Brothers We Must Not Mind a Little Suffering" {If you have time, the Mp3 is even better})

Charles H Spurgeon writes that Horae Homileticae are "Not Commentaries, but we could not exclude them. They have been called “a valley of dry bones”: be a prophet and they will live." (Commenting on Commentaries)

John Piper says that Horae Homileticae "is the best place to go for researching Simeon's theology. You can find his views on almost every key text in the Bible. He did not want to be labeled a Calvinist or an Arminian. He wanted to be Biblical through and through and give every text its due proportion, whether it sounded Arminian as it stands or Calvinistic. But he was known as an evangelical Calvinist, and rightly so. As I have read portions of his sermons on texts concerning election and effectual calling and perseverance he is uninhibited in his affirmation of what we would call the doctrines of grace… What Simeon experienced in the word was remarkable. And it is so utterly different from the counsel that we receive today that it is worth looking at." (Brothers, We Must Not Mind a Little Suffering) (Bolding added)

Who's Who in Christian History says that "If Wilberforce is the most famous evangelical layman in the Church of England, then Simeon is the most famous evangelical clergyman." (Bolding added)

Paul Mizzi notes that "Hours and hours of toil and labour have produced this veritable treasure, full of scholarship and intellectual endeavour." (Truth for Today) (Bolding added)

B. B. Siegel notes that "One can easily find suggestive and practical helps in the preparation of sermons, devotional talks, young people’s messages, prayer meeting talks, Sunday School lessons and personal Bible study. The study of these outlines will contribute greatly to expository preaching. It is a wonderful book for your library." (Bibliotheca Sacra Volume 112: page 458, October, 1955) (Bolding added)
