(taken from the preface.) Happily scattered over Dr Jowett's published sermons and books and in newspaper reports of his speeches, there are generous fragments of autobiography, ingenuous, self-revealing and often lit up by playful humour. From these fitful glimpses into himself, an outline autobiography, mosaic in construction, might almost be compiled, and the reader of this biography will discover that no opportunity has been lost to make use of 'Jowett testifying to Jowett.'-------------------
(taken from foreword by archbishop of Canterbury) Preachers belonging to the front rank are rare in the England of to-day; rarer, I am afraid, than they used to be. of that small number, Dr Jowett was pre-eminently one...His eloquence was nobly used for giving to his hearers in a stirring and thoughtful way the straightforward message of 'the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God' and I have no doubt that thousands in Birmingham, in New York, in Westminster can testify to-day to what his presentment of that Gospel has meant to their souls' health.
