Excerpt from Authorized and Authentic Life and Works of T. Dewitt Talmage
But he did not change because of this criticism.' Year after year he preached on to the largest congregations that ever continued to hear one man. And the people went to hear him! Why? Because he was agreat, human personality. We spend three years in college studying ancient mythology, he says, and three years in the theological seminary learning how to make a sermon, and then we go but to save the world; and if we cannot do it accord ing to Claude's Sermonizing or Blair's Rhetoric or _kame's Criticism, we will let the world go to perdition. If we save nothing else, we will save Claude and Blair.' The work of the religious teacher is to save men; and though every law of grammar should be snapped in the undertaking, and there be nothing but awkwardness and blundering in the mode, all hail to the man who saves a soul from death!
