Dr. Taylor shows in this work his large acquaintance with this portion of religious literature. A better book for the study, the Sunday school, and the Christian has not been issued this season.
—New York Observer
Dr. Taylor’s style is clear and strong, and he brings out with great distinctness the leading thoughts contained in each parable. It will be read with pleasure and profit by thoughtful Christians. The volume is one of more than ordinary richness.
They are clear and direct in style, abound in apt illustrations, are textually faithful, and breathe a devout and scholarly spirit.
The whole series is characterized in a remarkable degree by strong common sense and a shrewd insight into human nature and needs, as well as by the loyal purpose to lead men and women to God.
William Mackergo Taylor (1829–1895) graduated from the University of Glasgow at the relatively young age of 20. He was licensed as a preacher three years later, in 1852, by the United Presbytery of Ayrshire and two years later became the head pastor of United Presbyterian Church in Bootle, England. In 1872, he received a letter asking him to pastor the Broadway Tabernacle Church in New York, which position he gladly accepted and held until 1892. He was an extremely sought-after preacher, public speaker, and rhetorician.
