Rev. Alexander Maclaren: A collection of over 1300 of Maclaren's Published Bible Sermons and Addresses.

The Preaching of Alexander Maclaren:

Maclaren was born in Glasgow on February 11, 1826, and died in Manchester on May 5, 1910. He was for almost sixty-five years a minister, entirely devoted to his calling. His life was his ministry; his ministry was his life. In 1842, at 16 years of age, he was enrolled as a candidate for the Baptist ministry at Stepney College, London.

In the College he was thoroughly grounded in Greek and Hebrew. He was taught to study the Bible in the original and so the foundation was laid for his distinctive work as an expositor and for the biblical content of his preaching. Before Maclaren had finished his course of study he was invited to Portland Chapel in Southampton for three months; those three months became twelve years. He began his ministry there on June 28, 1846. His name and fame grew.

His ministry fell into a quiet routine for which he was always grateful: two sermons on Sunday, a Monday prayer meeting and a Thursday service and lecture. His parishioners thought his sermons to them were the best he ever preached. In April 1858 he was called to be minister at Union Chapel in Manchester. No ministry could have been happier. The church prospered and a new building had to be erected to seat 1,500; every seat was taken. His renown as preacher spread throughout the English-speaking world. His pulpit became his throne. He was twice elected President of the Baptist Union. He resigned as pastor in 1905 after a ministry of forty-five years.
