A volume of sermons for the church year by the pastor of the Methodist Church is Springfield, Massachusetts. There are sermons for Advent, Christmastide, Epiphany, Last, Bastertide and Whitsuntide. Dr. Wagner preaches pungent, down-to-earth sermons, and other preachers will find many hints and illustrative material for their own sermons. As many ministers find it difficult to prepare sermons for the recurring holidays this collection will be especially helpful. Since an increasing number of ministers in non-liturgical churches are planning their sermons with an eye to the church year this volume will be welcomed.
