KIRKUS REVIEW

Evangelism here is bringing a person into relationship with Jesus Christ, and interpreted in the traditional sense of conversion and being ""saved."" Although titled as ""sermons,"" the selections actually appear to be excerpted and arranged by the editor from longer discourses. They range in length from two to four pages. Contributors include a wide spectrum of preachers, from H. W. Beecher, Phillips Brooks, Bushnell, Bonar and others of the 19th century, to contemporaries as diverse as James Moffatt and Charles McCartney -- strange comrades under the general theme given to the compilation. The relevance of such evangelistic preaching to our time, and the method of selection are not discussed. It remains somewhat puzzling to the reader to conceive of the reason for their publication.
