on, by E. P. Barrows, D.D., 39.:
Revelation considered in its End,
39:- Jesus an infallible teacher,
39; the relation to Christ held by

accommodation to the belief of the
age, 45; the qualifications of the

the subjective forms, 429; other
forms, 430 ; proper application
of the term inspiration,” 430;
distinction of inspiration as affect-
ing the mind of the writer and as
affecting the words, 431; this dis-

tent of the application of the
term, 433; illumination of the
mind in respect to truth already
known, 435; meaning of the term
“ plenary inspiration,” 437; the

Three Fundamental Methods of

Preaching, The, article on, by
Prof. Edwards A. Park, 157 : The
Public Reading of Sermons :-

not all sermons that are written,
to be read, 157; the reading of
sermons not to be indiscriminately
condemned, 158; the prospect of
reading an entire discourse, an in-
centive to careful writing.158; the
occasional reading of a discourse
gives a needed variety to the
services of the pulpit, 159; it adds
emphasis to a preacher's words,
159; writing may be particularly
appropriate to the subject and
style of a sermon, 160; sometimes
particularly appropriate to the
relation of preacher and audience
to each other, 162; appropriate to
the mental or physical state of the
preacher, 163; appropriate to the
preacher's constitution and gen-
eral character, 164; the reading
of a sermon may be more nat-
ural and impressive than speak-
ing extempore or memoriter, 167;
the reading of sermons more or
less useful as more or less inter-
mingled with extempore or mem-
oriter preaching, 169; the practice
of reading sermons cannot become
the general practice without less-
ening, the preacher's influence,
170; it requires too much writing
for the bealth, 170; disqualifies
the minister for the full use of bis
corporeal powers, 171; reading
degenerates into an inapposite
stupid delivery, 171; reading lia-
ble to deadening forms of abuse,
172; rules for the public reading
of sermons suggested by the fact
that it should be modified by the
other methods of delivery, 174.
Preaching Memoriter, 176:– it
bas high authority in its favor,
176 ; some men have a call from
heaven to preach memoriter, 177;
the majority of preachers may
wisely cultivate the power of so
preaching, 179; a sermon may be
forgotten the next day after it is
preached, 179; advantages of
preaching memoriter, 181; it in-
cites to the making of the discourse
a rich one, 181: the preacher en-
riching himself by treasuring up
the sound thoughts and well-chosen
expressions of written discourses,
