“These sermons were preached in the Church of the Holy Communion, Philadelphia, to a congregation consisting in part of University and college students. In preaching it was impossible to disassociate from my mind the struggles through which many of these young people were passing and the battles which I was asked to help them fight during the week.
“The endeavor throughout is to set forth Christ Jesus as the Savior of the world. I have attempted to compare and contrast the Christ with those with whom He came into contact. The sermons thus presented are outlines rather than elaborations; earnest, practical discourses with a definite object in view rather than rhetorical, literary productions with an aesthetic congregation in mind. – Rev. Ernst Pfatteicher
