Excerpt from The Preacher and the Modern Mind

May I hold the reader by the button-hole for a moment while I explain to him what to look for and what not to look for in the pages that follow? I am especially desirous that a somewhat pretentious title should not awaken expectations that cannot be fulfilled.

First of all, then, these chapters are concerned with the preacher, and with the preacher as preacher, not as scholar or philosopher. It was the purpose of the Founder of this Lecture, as indicated in the Trust Deed executed by him, that it should be delivered 'with special reference and adaptation to the necessities of the times, and with a view to the benefit of the Candidates who are about to be ordained by the Conference to the Ministry.' This two-fold instruction I have endeavoured to keep steadfastly in view throughout these pages; they are addressed to the preacher, and especially to the young preacher, who feels, and is himself seeking to minister to, 'the necessities of the times.'

Nevertheless, I am sadly conscious how inadequately the book makes good the promise of its title. To speak in homely phrase, the sign is too big for the shop.
