Excerpt from The Bartered Birthright: Forty Brief Expository Addresses on the Life of Jacob; For the Week-Days of Lent
I have tried to make these addresses interesting to a week-day congregation. For this, in many instances, style, method, and personal preference have been sacri ficed; something, it may be, of the dignity of a former generation; nothing, I trust, of doctrinal soundness or of spiritual earnestness and wisdom. The story helps, although each address is complete in itself. I have used the commentaries, ancient and modern, and several monographs on the n'arrative 1 Some verses not other wise credited are by Archbishop Alexander.
During the past fall and winter a number of type written copies oi these addresses have been read to Sun day congregations by students in two of our theological seminaries and the approval of these young men probably has had its inﬂuence with my publishers, as it has been an encouragement to me, in giving them a more perma nent form.
