Excerpt from the editors preface:
"This volume honors, on his retirement from the Brown Chair of Homiletics at Union Theological Seminary in New York, a man whose zeal for the Word of God, and whose ability to bear witness to that Word in human words both beautiful and compelling, have made him one of the great Christian preachers and teachers of our age. For the sake of accuracy we must at once qualify the statement; for, as the reader will soon discover, Paul Scherer would be the last man to attribute whatever success he has had in his ministry to his own zeal or ability. To proclaim God's Word, to instruct others in the performance of that office - that is a gift and a calling, he would say and whatever success accrues from it belongs to the One who gives and who calls, together with whatever honor may be due. Let it be said, then, that this volume is a tribute to Him who calls men zealously to proclaim His gospel, and who gives them the gifts wherewith to do it bravely and well.
