Ten Shekels and a Shirt

“Ten Shekels and a Shirt” by Paris Reidhead. Playing time = 51:15.¬†Click here to listen (mp3).

This now-famous sermon was preached in the mid-1960’s by the Rev. Paris Reidhead, a New York pastor. The text of the sermon is taken from Judges 17-18.

I first heard this sermon when I was in college. It is a message of true transformation. Instead of preaching a so-called gospel of self-centeredness, we should proclaim salvation for God’s glory. This is one of the most insightful and moving sermons I’ve heard; everyone should hear it.

You may read more about the sermon and a transcript of it here. It is my understanding that the audio recording and the transcript are both in the public domain.
