An exciting series of studies on the post-resurrection ministry of Jesus and the people and events He encountered during these momentous days. The Saturday Review said of this book when it was published: "(It is the) work of a brilliant and effective teacher. Dr. Maclaren writes with real power and insight." Dr. Warren Wiersbe says that Maclaren was known as the "prince of expository preachers, and was a man with a scholar's mind and a pastor's heart. Exposition and illustration were his strengths. He had fresh, fertile illustrations of the textual analysis and was a powerful reader of Scripture. He spent nearly sixty hours of study on many of his sermons, which were models of effective expository preaching. Almost legendary status in his day."
The Wycliffe Biographical Dictionary of the Church said of Maclaren, "Maclaren's expository sermons have, perhaps next to Spurgeon's, been the most widely read sermons of their time, and are still greatly appreciated... (He was) a humble, modest man who shrank from publicity. A profound and instructive Bible scholer whose theological position was thoughtfully and candidly evangelical."
