Human Questions and Divine Answers

Excerpt from Human Questions and Divine Answers: Short Sermons Expressly Written for Lay Readers in the American Church For many years the writer of these Sermons has been obliged to call upon laymen to read occasional services in small mission churches. In order to supply them with sermons to select from, he has bought books by many writers. There are a great many books of excellent sermons, but most of them are not exactly what is wanted for lay reading. They are either too long, though not too long when the author delivered them; or the note is too personal, though that might also have been a merit when they were first preached; or they are too elaborate and learned, making too great demands upon the audience to follow them; or they may be too English; that is, all the illustrations and allusions are taken from English life. Now such sermons may be useful in the hands of persons competent to adapt them to the particular needs of a small American congregation. But so few of my lay-readers have had this power of adaptation, that I have been forced to write many short sermons for them. What I have kept in mind has been: as much brevity as was consistent with a certain air of completeness, simple language, clear statement, short paragraphs and short sentences, so that the reader would not be apt to make a mistake in the sense. Then I have sought a certain obviousness. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
