Harper's series of books of sermons by preachers of another day is reminiscent of the current vogue for ""revivals"" in our motion picture houses. Perhaps it is unfair to compare the output of our contemporaneous preachers to that of Hollywood, but it is true that many of the great sermons as many of the great motion pictures came out of the post. John A. Hutton is of the immediate past, for he died in 1947, and his has been a name to jure with in the Protestant circles of Britain and America. He succeeded to in Birmingham and then became even better known as the editor of The British Weekly, one of the best edited religious periodicals of our time. He was much in demand as a preacher and lecturer on both sides of the Atlantic. A great conversationalist, he had a best of friends who warmed to his human qualities and were quickened by his intellect and religious insight. These sermons have a solid quality about them; they plumb the depths of Christian experience. Every preacher would benefit from a reading of them.
