Statement of Editorial Procedures
The copy-text is the stenographically reported version of the sermon, which was delivered May 21, 1922 at the First Presbyterian Church of New York City. The speech was stenographically reported by Margaret Renton. The copy-text was recovered from the PCA Historical Center with the gracious assistance of Director Wayne Sparkman. The copy-text was selected because it most closely resembles what Fosdick actually said in his delivery of the sermon.
Version B was recovered from Fosdick’s papers at The Burke Library with the generous help of librarian Carolyn Bratnober. Version B is a typed copy of the sermon, which includes handwritten notes by Fosdick.
Versions C and D were published and widely circulating versions of the sermon. The Christian Century and The Christian Work were popular Christian magazines that published important sermons from various Christian pastors.
Paragraph numbers were added in square brackets.
The text of this edition has been thoroughly checked and proofread by Eric C. Miller and Lauren Hunter.
