The average priest looks with, suspicion upon sermon books, because contact with them has not afforded him the desired help in the work of his ministry. He complains that the discourses he finds in books are for the most part, unattractive in form, trite, platitudinarian, or too long if not too short. Unfortunately his complaints are all too well founded, and hence it is with a certain fear and trembling that one dares bring any thing forward in the shape of sermons or conferences. Yet there is a demand for sermon books on the part of the younger clergy, and if the writer understands that demand aright, it embraces first a good-deal of truth, secondly attractive and direct form, and thirdly moderate brevity. A long sermon, though otherwise a meritorious one, is for most people a distinct failure.
