Description

Explores the relationship between theology and preaching by examining the careers of four enormously influential, twentieth-century New York preachers (Harry Emerson Fosdick, George Buttrick, Paul Scherer, and Ralph Sockman), whose sermons reached the leaders in culture, commerce, and government across the United States. It examines these preachers' pulpit theology in its social, cultural, political, economic and demographic context as well as their doctrine and the theological legacy they bequeathed. Sundays in New York will be of interest to historians, theologians, students, and practitioners of ministry.
