Excerpt from Lecture-Room Talks: A Series of Familiar Discourses on Themes of General Christian Experience
I desire the reader to bear in mind that the subject-matter of this book was delivered in the week-night prayer-meetings of Plymouth Church. The "Talks" are not only colloquial and familiar, but they carry in them much more of the personality of the speaker than is usual in such remarks. But I have considered the want of personal experience in Christian discourse one reason of the want of interest usually felt in sermons. No one can read the discourses of the Apostles, and above all of Paul, without perceiving that they are saturated with personal experience.
Where such elements are not in excess; where they are guided by a modest judgment, and do not degenerate into empty and repetitious egotism, - they become the source of great power, and we cannot well afford to lose them out of the Pulpit, certainly not from the more social and familiar Lecture-Room.
