On every side were requests for the printing of the sermon- and the Mens Bible Class immediately waited upon Dr. Barton and requested a copy of the manuscript.Our pastor preached a sermon at the time of the declaration of war which also deeply impressed the congregation.

It was entitled Our Fight for the Heritage of Humanity, and was delivered on Sunday morning, April 15, 1917. Coming as it did immediately after the declaration of war, and before people generally had formulated their convictions in utterances of this character, it proved of interest and value not only to the members of this congregation, but to others far outside. It was quoted in many addresses, and favorably commented upon by men in high positions, as well as by newspapers in this country and in Great Britain.

The Mens Bible Class was compelled to put it on the press several times in order to meet the requests that were received for it.We are sending this sermon forth not only as the honest and forceful utterance of our minister, but also as a fair statement of the views of this congregation. If it is significant, as we believe it is, the significance lies not alone in the fact that our minister said it, but also in the fact that this congregation is in accord with him.We believe that many people will be glad to read this sermon, and will find in it an effective presentation of the view which Christian America holds concerning the great world war.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
