"The scholar as preacher" Third Series Written during the second world war (1 year into the war) this is an important document. Preface: This volume owes it's origin to a suggestion made by one of the contributors. The suggestion was to prepare a volume containing sermons which had been preached in the University Chapel, King's College, Aberdeen, by Principals and Professors of Theological Faculties in Scotland. It was decided that the invitation to contribute should be restricted to Principals and Professors who had preached, in order to keep the book within the limits of a volume of the "Scholar as Preacher" series. But at the same time it was felt that the limitation would give the book to some extent the value of a manifesto. Each preacher has spoken for himself and is responsible for his own doctrine only; still, when the sermons in this volume are taken together, some trustworthy knowledge will be obtained of the teaching which prevails at the present time in the Theological Colleges of Scotland. The appropriateness of the title will be recognised by those who have seen the beautiful and ancient Crown which surmounts the Chapel at King's College. Contents: After a year of war, by G.A.
