The Revealer Revealed: Thoughts upon the Revelation of Christ to and in His People

Author: W. Hay H. M. Aitken
Publisher: J. F. Shaw and Co.
Publish Date: 1886

Arousing sermons. These will be read and remembered for they are all alive. They show a holy vehemence blended with common sense and a thorough consecration which does not lose its head or run into insanity. It is a great comfort to think of High Church folk listening to such sermons as these; they must surely see, before long, that the preacher who is so grandly clear when he sails out into the open gospel is an awful bungler when he gets upon infant baptism and kindred themes. In this case we pare our apple and then find it exceeding sweet to our taste. Mr. Aitken is most at home when he is preaching Christ and him crucified and we then feel altogether at home with him.  We feel a brotherly admiration of the great preacher even when we do not quite agree with him; but when he comes to the cross, as he usually does, we warm to the touch of kindred in Christ.
