A Word for Preachers...J.W. Alexander on the Value of the Preacher's Office

"I fear none of us apprehend as we ought to do the value of the preacher's office. Our young men do not gird themselves for it with the spirit of those who are on the eve of a great conflict; nor do they prepare as those who are to lay their hands upon the strings of the mightiest passions, and stir up to their depths the ocean of human feelings."
