From the Introduction This volume of sermons is a contribution to the world's religious literature. They are characterized by simplicity of style, clearness of expression, beauty of diction, and strength of thought; they are marked by evangelical spirit and Scriptural soundness. Science, logic, rhetoric, poetry, illustration and flights of fancy are woven into sermonic structures that convince the intellect, profoundly stir the emotions and move the will to action. These sermons are on living themes and throb in sympathy with the heartbeats of earth's suffering and thrill in harmony with the angelic ministrelsy of the skies. This volume embodying the ripe fruits of Dr. Chappell's intellect and heart should have a place in thousands of homes.
