1913. A collection of sermons by Dr. Long, Pastor of the First English Lutheran Church in Mansfield, Ohio, which at the time was probably the largest English Lutheran congregation in the world. This volume is based on the Eisenach selection of texts from the Prophets of the Old Testament. Dr. Long, as a preacher, he is in a class by himself. He is neither a preaching exegete, nor a preaching theologian. He does not preach over the heads of his great congregations. His sermons are always plain, practical, direct and striking. He strikes to hit and he hits to hurt and heal. He is always in harmony with the teachings of his church and makes these teachings acceptable and accepted in hundreds of non-Lutheran hearts and home. He is the great pulpit power of his city.
