Mark Dever and the "Reading Richard Sibbes Aloud Project" (MP3 Series)

I remember how excited I was when I first discovered that different individuals had recorded their readings of the sermons of Charles Spurgeon, Jonathan Edwards, John Flavel and John Bunyan. I then remember the overwhelming disappointment I experienced when I realized that they were read without any inflection or variation in the readers' intonation. The reason for this monotone approach? Apparently, reading with inflection could take away from the author's intention or emphasize something it ought not. This sort of approach made the readings incredibly boring, and became the reason I abandoned all attempts to listen to them any longer.I have often commented how nice it would be to have Sinclair Ferguson, Eric Alexander, or some other noteworthy preacher read and record select, historic sermons.

Much to my amazement, I discovered that Mark Dever has been reading and recording Richard Sibbes' sermons since this past July. According to Capitol Hill Baptist Church's website, "The 'Reading Sibbes Aloud Project' provides a growing collection of sermons of the Puritan Richard Sibbes. The great value of Puritan writing continues to be its depth of scriptural insight and timeless application. Please join Mark Dever as he reads through the works of the "Prince of the Puritans," Richard Sibbes." You can find links to the 'Reading Richard Sibbes Aloud Project' here. You can download and listen to the following Sibbes sermons:
