Excerpt from The Humiliation of Christ: Five Sermons Preached by Five Bishops of the Methodist Episcopal Church Presiding at as Many Annual Conferences of the Southwest Kansas Conference
They may not be conscious of the inﬂuence at the beginning, and may perhaps never be able to name the source, but the touch of the master-hand is there, and in a few instances, if the ideal should be crystallized into visible form, the figure of him who gave it would be easily recognized. It is not for me even to guess at the permanent value of these discourses, but if the impression made in their delivery be any measure of their inﬂuence, they have not been unfruitful, and they will be read again with pleasure and profit by those who heard them. They are not published, however, solely for the re-reading of our ministerial brethren, but that those who see them for the first time may catch the glow of the thought and be by them enabled to share in the joys and privileges they portray.
These sermons appear in this volume by the consent of the authors as stenographically reported and published in our Conference Daily, and are sent out in the interests of our Pastors Emeri tus, and all the profits from the sale of this book will go to their aid.
