These 14 sermons about Jesus are concerned with the familiar, and a few not so familiar, characteristics of Jesus, his humility, his holiness, his hardness, his aggressiveness, his intelligence, his authority, his simplicity, his optimism, etc. The author, pastor of St. Luke's Methodist Church, Oklahoma City, follows the advice of his father, -- ""always to any a good word for the Lord Jesus Christ"" in his preaching. Others might prefer to say that Christ, if he be lifted up, will speak for himself and draw all men unto him, -- and that it is rather the crucified, living Lord and the world needs to see and hear. But these simple and sincere portraits of Jesus will doubtless be useful as devotional reading to many who try to be like him. Dr. Stowe is always careful to make a personal application of the characteristics of Jesus to the lives of his hearers -- and readers.
