Charles Simeon was born in 1759 and died in 1836. He was the pastor of Trinity Church in Cambridge (England) for 54 years. He is best known for his Horae Homileticae, which are 21 volumes of “sermon skeletons” from Genesis through Revelation.
In his biography on Charles Simeon, John Piper said of these volumes: “You can find his views on almost every key text in the Bible.” He also said: “What Simeon experienced in the word was remarkable. It is so utterly different from the counsel that we receive today that it is worth looking at carefully” (Meditations on the Life of Charles Simeon).
One of Simeon’s fundamental principles was for the Bible to speak for itself instead of placing presuppositions (theological systems) over God’s word.
These are the combined volumes of the Old Testament (volumes 1-10, Genesis – Malachi). For the combined volumes of the New Testament (volumes 11-21), please click here.
As with any writer and book, we should be like the Bereans, “examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so” (Acts 17:11). Or as Paul wrote: “Test everything; hold fast what is good” (1 Thess. 5:21).
