The sermons of Dr. George H. Morrison throb with vitality. They are "Unconventional" in the best sense of the word - combining imagination, culture, and style with spiritual insight, personal compassion, and that power of immediate appeal. noted for his concentrated study, his devoted pastoral range of listeners - from university students to working class parishioners. Morrison's sermons are thoughtful but not dull; imaginative yet practical; scholarly without being stuffy. As Ralph Turnbull notes in the introduction, Morrison "never lost sight of the fact that as a minister of Christ his first concern must be how best to bring his hearers closer to the heart of the Lord."
Some of the sermons included in this volume are:
- The Best Wine Last
- The Candor of Christ
- The Angel and the Sandals
- The Deceptions of God
"Morrison has a gift of saying things that we all would have said, had it occurred to us to say them; and he said those inevitable things as we could not, in English prose that had the effect of poetry on the heart."- From the introduction by Dr. Ralph G. Turnbull
