The Manhood of the Master
Harry Emerson Fosdick was one of the most popular liberal preachers of the early twentieth century, and his The Manhood of the Master is considered by many one of the best explications of Jesus the man. This delightful little book features daily devotional readings focused on the character of Christ, reflecting upon: .the Master's joy .the Master's loyalty to his cause .the Master's sincerity .the Master's self-restraint .the Master's affection .the Master's spirit and other attributes worthy of emulation. This warmly human interpretation of the central figure of one of the world's dominant faiths is as potent an antidote to austere interpretations of Scripture today as it was when it was first published in 1913. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Fosdick's The Meaning of Faith and The Meaning of Prayer. American theologian HARRY EMERSON FOSDICK (1878-1969) was born in New York, educated at Colgate and Columbia Universities, and served as professor of practical theology at Union Theological Seminary from 1915 to 1946. Among his many works are A Guide to Understanding the Bible (1938) and A Book of Public Prayers (1960).
