A SHEPHERD'S HEART: Sermons from the Pastoral Ministry of J.W. Alexander
James Waddel Alexander

James Waddel Alexander (1804-1859) was the eldest son of Archibald Alexander and brother of Joseph Addison Alexander. This volume of his sermons gives a glimpse into the heart of a true shepherd. The LORD promised through the Prophet Jeremiah that He would raise up shepherds after His own heart who would feed His people with knowledge and understanding. Such a shepherd was J.W. Alexander.

Charles Hodge said of him, "No minister in our Church was a more accomplished scholar. (But) the pulpit was his appropriate sphere. While he was not the first of all orators to hear on rare occasions, he was the first of preachers to sit under, month after month and year after year."

This volume of his sermons has long been unavailable. It is a fitting companion volume to our new title by his brother Joseph Addison, "THEOLOGY ON FIRE: Sermons from the Heart of J.A. Alexander."
