"...he sees Jesus, and that is a sacred gift... There is always such a savor of the Lord Jesus Christ in Dr. Hawker that you cannot read him without profit." -Charles Spurgeon

"They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces turned towards it, saying, Come let us join ourselves to the Lord in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten." Jeremiah 50:5

"And confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth." Hebrews 11:13

"Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost." There is something very striking in this loud voice of Jesus. Not like one exhausted; not as one dispirited; but as a conqueror in the field of battle, retreating with his spoils. Jesus cried aloud, that all on earth, and all in heaven, and all in hell, might hear, "It is finished!" What is finished? Redemption-work is finished. And from that moment the empire of sin, death, hell, and the grave were vanquished....And that song was sung in heaven,..."thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood. "

Robert Hawker (1753 - 1827)

All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out. John 6:37

"All," not one, or two, or ten, or a million only, but "all."

And observe wherefore?

They are the Father's gift to Jesus, and therefore they must come. He said elsewhere, "that I should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Me" (John 17:2).

Hence, therefore, there is a blessed provision, a blessed security, that they shall come; for they are the Father's gift to Christ, as well as the purchase of Christ's blood, and the promise is absolute in the charter of grace - "Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power" (Psalm 110:3). And, to give every possible encouragement to the poor coming sinner, whom God the Holy Ghost is leading by the hand to the all-precious Jesus, He adds, "And him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out."

Robert Hawker (1753-1827) was a Devonian vicar of the Anglican Church and the most prominent of the vicars of Charles Church, Plymouth, Devon. His grandson was Cornish poet Robert Stephen Hawker. Of all the ministers of Charles Church this man is the most famous. The "Star of the West", due to his superlative preaching that drew thousands to Charles to hear him speak for over an hour at a time. He was a bold Evangelical, caring father, active in education and compassionate for the poor and needy of the parish, a scholar and author of many books and deeply beloved of his parishioners. Described as "one of Almighties almoners/Entrusted with supernatural wealth" in the rather sycophantic poem by W. Cann. Charles Spurgeon exhorted his students, "Gentlemen, if you want something full of marrow and fatness, cheering to your own hearts by way of comment, and likely to help you in giving to your hearers rich expositions, buy Dr. Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary . . . he sees Jesus, and that is a sacred gift which is most precious." According to Joel R. Beeke of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, "Hawker increased in fame and popularity as a powerful 'high Calvinist' preacher" and "was remarkably winsome in preaching Christ to all." Hawker brings his homiletic skills to the reading of scripture in this rich commentary.
