The Reading and Preaching of the Scriptures in the Worship of the Christian Church explores the history of preaching from the words of Moses at Mount Sinai through modern times. This sixth volume, The Modern Age, tells the story from the French Revolution to the fall of the Berlin Wall (1789-1989). During this time preaching continued to support its historic faith while the church undertook to resist secularization, come to grips with biblical criticism, and initiate bold overseas missions.
Opening with the revived Catholic Order of Preachers, Abraham Kuyper, and Friedrich Schleiermacher, Old moves on to consider John Henry Newman and Charles Haddon Spurgeon. He then carefully examines the evangelical Calvinism of New England, as well as the beginnings of black preaching and the great American school of Charles Finney, Dwight L. Moody, and Harry Emerson Fosdick. In the twentieth century Old's focus falls on the crises of the two world wars, especially the courageous ministries of German, Dutch, and Hungarian preachers during the Third Reich.
