THE YOUNG CHURCHMAN CO.
TO CHRISTOPHER CHESHIRE
THE course of sermons on Defects in English Religion was preached in August, 1916, at Grosvenor Chapel, Mayfair. It is reprinted by kind permission of the proprietors of the Church Times. The sermons on The Mysteries of Love were preached during Lent at Grosvenor Chapel and elsewhere, and are printed here for the first time. The sermon on The Office of the Priest is reprinted by kind permission of the Editor of the English Church Review. Unfortunately, the manuscript of the second sermon in the course on The Mysteries of Love was lost in the post. Its most important points will be found in my little tract on the Church. The paper on The Sword and the Cross appeared in the Challenge early in the war. It is reprinted by kind permission.
