WHEN I BECAME A MAN by Theodore Parker Ferris


Email this review


In all his books (The Story of Jesus, This Created World, This is the Day, etc.) Dr. Ferris, Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church, Boston, shows himself to be pastmaster in his unique ability to translate the truths of the Christian faith, not only in terms that laymen can understand, but also in such immediate fashion that the relation to their lives is urgently plain. The chapters which comprise his latest expression of this difficult art originated as sermons and addresses in different times and places, but they do not suffer the embarrassment of so many sermons reduced to print, that of raising the question of whether they should have been spoken in the first place. Dr. Ferris' literary grace and convincing phrases are a joy to hear, but do bring great satisfaction to the reader, of whom there will doubtless be many.
