Excerpt from The Kingdom of God Is Within You: Pulpit Talks
It has been estimated that at least two million sermons have been published in book form, but not one in a hundred Of them has won a place in the enduring literature of the world. This remark, however, carries with it no 1mplication that the ma jority of those sermons were not excellent when preached, or that the vast multitude of sermons never published did not serve their real purpose. The true test Of a sermon is hearing it, and not reading it in print. Very likely the sermons Of John the Baptist or of St. Peter, if we had verbatim copies Of them as spoken, would find no important place in permanent literature.
