Harry Emerson Fosdick’s sermon Shall the Fundamentalists Win? persuaded many

Harry Emerson Fosdick’s sermon Shall the Fundamentalists Win? persuaded many. Why? He was persuasive (at least in part) because he skillfully attacked fundamentalism while leaving the impression that the fundamentalists were the aggressors. So Haiford R. Ryan concludes in this valuable study of a remarkable preacher. Ryan fills a niche in Fosdick studies by providing a calendar of Fosdick’s sermons, a chronology of his speeches, and a thorough bibliography. Ryan also analyzes Fosdick’s rhetorical strategies in selected sermons on modernism and pacifism, the two major controversies of Fosdick’s career. Texts of the sermons are included.
