“Machen was a singularly effective spokesman for Christianity for more than a score of years before his death on New Year’s Day, 1937. Though his own books constitute the most significant record of what he had to say, they do not tell the complete story. Especially the public phases of his career as preacher, teacher, educator and citizen are illumined by the contents of the two volumes of sermons and addresses which are now made available to the general reader (the other volume being God Transcendent ). The present volume particularly discloses the rich diversity of his interests and activities as a Christian man and minister.” – Ned B. Stonehouse, from the Preface.
