This collection of 14 essays, 2 of which were written by people with ties to Appalachia, offers what Stidger calls “a cross-section of what America’s leading laymen are thinking about preachers, the Church, religion, the State, missions, and life” (p. 7). Some have the label “sermon” underneath the title; Stanley High described others as sermons when he published them in the Christian Herald, a weekly newspaper that operated from 1878 to 1992. There thus seems to be sufficient grounds for including them in the Library.
