Excerpt from Selected Souvenir Sermons Delivered in People's Temple, Boston, Mass
They have been published at the kind solicitation of many friends, who from time to time expressed a desire to have something to read as a memento after the time limit of Methodism had rolled the preacher on to other fields.
It is hoped they will help to keep the memory green of not only these, but of the other discourses on fundamental facts and practical forces, that especially in our times are contributing so rapidly to expansive Evangelicity.
Owing to the pressure of other pastoral duties it has been impossible to publish at present the seven series of sermons so frequently asked for on: I. The Great Religions of the World. II. The Nations in Divine Transition. III. Christianity Triumphant. IV. The Immortal Interviews of Jesus. V. The Manifest Mission of America. VI. The Relation of Religion to the Welfare of the Person, the Home, the Church and the State. VII. Social Statics and How to Reach the Classes and the Masses. With others of kindred nature that we trust will remain engraven on the red leaved Volume of the human heart after the speaker's tongue is mute in the silence of the grave, and his soul has passed on to give account of how he has used his momentous Opportunities.
Possibly it may be permitted him from some other part of the field to publish a presentation in more scientific and related form, some or all of these living themes to which so many so appreciatively have listened in the Peoples' Temple and expressed desires for their form in print. If so, his Boston friends will doubtless hear of it. If not, as in all other matters, so in this, the will of the Lord be done.
