Excerpt from The Way Made Plain: A Few Plain Sermons to Busy Adults, Who Think They Have Not the Time to Take a Thorough Course of Catechetical Intructions
OR the growth and development of the Kingdom of God, it is a wise ordination that there are among its servants, diversities of gifts. The capacity to set before the people sound and wholesome theological truths in plain unambiguous speech, is something to be coveted by every preacher of Righteousness. The man in whom there is united soundness in doctrine and lucid and homely force of statement, has within himself the possibility of unusual effectiveness as a preacher. Such a manwe take the author of these sermons to be. They are, what they claim to be, plain sermons for plain people. They are, as we understand, weekday evening discourses spoken by an earnest man in the course of his ministry, to one of the largest Protestant congregations in this state. The author is a courageous man in the advocacy of his convictions. He believes heartily and strongly in the Lutheran apprehension of the Gospel. His preaching is an effective statement for the popular mind, of what is comprehended in that appre hension.
