Of the four categories mentioned in the title, the “pulpit editorial” is most relevant to the Library of Appalachian Preaching. In “What Reason Has This Book?,” Stidger writes that the editorial is “a scheme for commenting on civic affairs and matters of news-note and human interest, without interjecting them into the sermon.” As a “vehicle to convey truth; to keep one’s congregations up on new discoveries, new books, and new thinking,” it can be a “popular and a forceful part of a Sunday evening service” (viii, ix).
