9781331487418: The Vocation of the Preacher (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Vocation of the Preacher

To those of the Author's friends who have read his late volume, "The Throne of Eloquence," the appearance of the present work will be rather the fulfilment of an expectation than a surprise; they will recognise in it the second of what was intended to have been a series of volumes on pulpit work and workers, partly consisting of chapters from previous works, long out of print, and partly the result of a more recent course of lectures, delivered in Boston, U. S. But our readers know how, suddenly, before these hopes could be fulfilled, or even the present volume completed, that "evening" came which was to our writer "his Sabbath morning of eternal rest." Such a possibility had often been anticipated by him; and frequently, as suggestive thoughts and feelings thronged brain and heart, he would say, "Ah, I have so many books I want to write, so many sermons I want to preach, but I shall die, and not do half I want to do!"

It was on Thursday, June the 4th, 1885, whilst he was preparing the chapter on "Puritan Adams," that he suddenly expressed his inability to complete it. "I cannot finish this now," he said; "I feel I am working at too great a strain, and can do justice neither to my publishers nor myself. I must ask them to give me a little longer time; I shall work better after my holiday." Needless to say, his kind publishers at once, and with much sympathy, granted the desired reprieve. But for him the vesper bell had chimed, and his work was over.
