They have been presented to my people in substantially the form in which they here occur. The themes have been chosen from that range where doubtful controversy finds the air too rare for breathing. They deal with Jesus as the head of humanity and not simply the head of the church. The great business of the preacher is to develop manhood, and the themes which serve this purpose are the large themes of faith, hope and love, divine humanism and optimism, the power of the Holy Spirit as ethical, rational, historical and immanent, the knowledge of God as derived from an unfolding brotherhood.The Bible is a theme, for the pulpit, as an evolution within an evolution, an inspiration recorded within an inspiration too great for record.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
