Spiritual Voices in Modern Literature
Excerpt from Spiritual Voices in Modern Literature
The lectures included in this volume were delivered in the Metropolitan Church, Toronto, in the winter of 1918-19, and are now published in response to the request of many who heard them.
My object in adopting the Series was to find modern illustrations of some of the great truths to which the Church stands committed. The difficulty consisted in making a selection out of the many influential voices which witness to the yearning of men, and to the Divine response in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Christian Faith and the Christian Ethic might be reconstructed from the prophetic teachers of the nineteenth century, some proclaiming one and some another aspect of the full-orbed truth. It is a far cry from Hawthorne to James Smetham, from Ibsen to Francis Thompson, and yet each, after his own genius, gave utterance to an authentic Christian truth.
