Rev. Stephen Egerton (1555–1621) was an early puritan divine, a man of great learning and practical godliness. In this treatise, Egerton demonstrates the Christian’s duty in hearing the word of God preached. In the first chapter he shows what it means to “take heed” in hearing the word following what Christ said, “Take heed therefore how ye hear,” (Luke 8:18). Then, he gives general duties in chapter 2 in relationship to preparations that ought to be made before coming to hear the sermon. Chapter 3 deals with what the hearer ought to do while hearing the sermon. And chapter 4 deals with the duties of the Christian after the sermon. Egerton has a vivid, masterful grasp of his matter, and dissects the doctrine of hearing the word preached in a catechistic manner through questions and thorough answers This work is not a scan or facsimile, has been carefully transcribed by hand being made easy to read in modern English, and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
