About-

Here is a collection of sermons preached during the last decade of Westcott's life. At that time Westcott was Bishop of Durham. The sermons were preached all over the diocese during the early 1890s.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In the following pages I have endeavored to express what I have felt from time to time when I have been called to consider some particular phase of our present life, and to mark, however imperfectly, the application of the Gospel to our own difficulties and sorrows and duties. The highest conceivable attestation of a divine revelation lies in its power to meet each new want of man as it arises, and to gain fresh force from the growth of human knowledge. The message of the Incarnation satisfies this criterion in unexpected ways, and our distresses enable us to feel its wider applications."
