Excerpt from The Fifth Horseman: And Other Sermons An able and sympathetic critic of the pulpit '1 insists that one of the outstanding weaknesses of the preaching of today is an inability to organize materials. Probably no preacher of the last generatron did more to bring the formal religious discourse in disrepute than Phillips Brooks. Yet this prince of preachers did not hesitate to appreciate the virtues of the old p111 pit method.

I can only say that I have come to fear it less and less. The escape from it must be not negative but positive. The true way to get rid of the boniness of a sermon is not by getting rid of the skeleton but clothing it with flesh. The preachers of today will do well to heed this caution.
