In the Footsteps of Heroes, and Other Sermons

Author: Enoch Mellor
Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton
Publish Date: 1886

This volume of sermons receives its title from the last of the series, which from its unfinished state is least worthy of that distinction. The secret of Dr. Mellor's popularity evidently consisted in a literary refinement and the adaptation of his thoughts and language to the daily experiences of Christian cares and conflicts. His subjects are less doctrinal than experimental and practical, and so far are in conformity with the taste of the present age. The allusions to the doctrines of grace, when they do occur, are decided and clear. The sixth discourse, which is upon "No Self-Expiation," is as a tree of life in the midst of the garden of which whosoever partakes with the hand of faith may eat and live forever.
