Description

Excerpt from Pulpit Eloquence of the Nineteenth Century: Being Supplementary to the History and Repository of Pulpit Eloquence, Deceased Divines; And Containing Discourses of Eminent Living Ministers in Europe and America, With Sketches Biographical and Descriptive Fathers, brought forward a somewhat connected view of preach ers and preaching, up to the beginning of the present century The active life of few of the men there introduced, fell this side of that period. A fuller exhibition of the pulpit, as it now stands among the different nations of the earth, was therefore obviously requisite; and such an exhibition is here given. Taken together, and in their different aspects, it is believed that these volumes embrace the materials for arriving at a fair estimate of the leading features of the ministry and its productions, in the different parts of Christendom, from the days of the apostles until now besides supplying a large amount of sanctified Christian eloquence, on a great variety of themes. The already wide circulation of the previous volumes, and the public and private commendations which many of the leaders of public sentiment have been pleased to express, together with the hope that they were, in some small degree, subserving the best of causes, have compensated for the labor involved in their prepara tion, and led to the publication of this supplementary volume.
