From the INTRODUCTORY WORD.
A volume of genuine sermons from the study and pulpit of a cultured, consecrated, and successful representative of the younger ministry may be hailed with pleasure by both publisher and reader. Such a volume is clearly in the little book herewith offered.
In these "Bible Tragedies" the author has brought to his task a keen power of analysis and a wealth of illustrative material drawn from fresh and vital sources. These discourses abound in vivid and pointed lessons for practical living. They contain no hackneyed work. A significant fact is that they were not primarily prepared for publication. They were preached in the ordinary course of the author's ministry to his Sunday evening audiences. The question, however, of the Sunday evening congregation was no problem under these sermons. The capacious house was always thronged, and several times well-nigh to the point of physical discomfort.
It has been judged, and we think wisely, that it would be well to give these discourses, so highly appreciated by the local congregation, to the wider public - hence this little volume. If these published utterances may speedily secure the larger hearing and produce the greater good which their message merits, then their publication must prove a contribution to the growing and imperishable structure of Christian thought.
