The Gospel Pulpit is a collection of sermons by J. C. Philpot. This book is the 5th volume in the collection of fourteen. My desire is to exalt the grace of God; to proclaim salvation alone through Jesus Christ; to declare the sinfulness, helplessness and hopelessness of man in a state of nature; to describe the living experience of the children of God in their trials, temptations, sorrows, consolations and blessings. -J. C. Philpot Joseph Charles Philpot kwn as The Seceder resigned from the Church of England in 1835 becoming a Strict & Particular Baptist. Educated at Oxford University, he was elected a fellow of Worcester College, and appeared to have a brilliant scholastic career before him.
