2 Samuel 12:1-5;
This study endeavors to determine whether the introductions and conclusions of c. E. Macartney’s sermons meet the standards of purpose, of variety, of style, of peculiar characteristics as laid down by reputable homileticians and speech critics . By the standard of purpose we mean what the homileticians and speech critics prescribe as the aim and intent of the introduction and conclusion to any sermon or speech. We understand by variety the number of different approaches made to the audience to avoid monotony in the exordiums and perorations used Sunday after Sunday. In the discussion of style, we endeavored to ascertain which diction, phraseology, and sentence structure is most applicable to the introductions and conclusions of sermonic material. And finally, by peculiar characteristics we mean the traits, qualities, and attributes peculiar to those parts of a total sermon, the introduction and the conclusion, with special reference to their respective lengths and relation to the body of the sermon.
