The Christ-Life for the Self-Life
During his long and fruitful life, he preached more than 16,000 sermons. Said one author: "The phrasing of Meyer's sermons was simple and direct; he polished his discourses as an artist polishes a perfect stone. There was always a glowing imagery in his words; his speech was pastoral, lovely as an English valley washed in sunlight....In his day, great wars raged, but those who went to hear him forgot the battles."
He had great influence upon such giants of the faith as J. Wilbur Chapman and Charles H. Spurgeon. Spurgeon said, "Meyer preaches as a man who has seen God face to face."
