WHEN THE LAMP FLICKERS by Leslie D. Weatherhead


Email this review


The pastor of the City Temple in London is one of the most popular preachers in the Anglo-Saxon world, and the reader of this volume of his sermons has ample evidence of the reason for this popularity. Dr. Weatherhead has an uncanny ability to couch the message of Christianity in language that the modern man can understand and appreciate. There is nothing ""preachy"" -- nothing trite about these sermons. They are designed to answer the sorts of questions that people outside of the church are apt to ask, such as: ""Did Jesus Believe in Chance?"" ""Did Jesus Distinguish Between Sacred and Secular?"" ""Did Jesus Disapprove of Wealth?"" ""Can a Christian Be a Communist?"" ""Is it Any Good to Pray about the Weather?"" ""Is Christianity Out-of-Date?"" This is the best of contemporary Protestant preaching.
