Item description for The Wartime Sermons of Dr. Peter Marshall by Rev Peter J. Marshall...
Scottish-born Dr. Peter Marshall inmmigrated to America in 1927. During the next twenty-two years, before his untimely death in 1949 at the age of forty-six, he became one of the nation's most famous preachers, pastor of Washington, D.C's historic New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, and Chaplain of the U.S. Senate. His wife, author Catherine Marshall, wrote his best-selling biography, "A Man Called Peter", which was subsequently made into the much-heralded 1955 movie.
"The Wartime Seromons of Dr.Peter Marshall" includes many of his most sought-after messages delivered during World War II. Today, as we continue to face a war against global terrorism during the aftermath of September 11, 2001, these wartime sermons, preached more than fifty years ago, have never been more timely, appropriate, or desperately needed. This dynamic book of sermons and prayers should be kept nearby during these challenging times.

A book for all times. Feb 3, 2010
This is a book of sermons written by one of the greatest members of the clergy in this country. Although the sermons were written and directed at the USA and the world in the grasp of WWII, the message relayed in each sermon is very real to the way our world is today!! A must read for those of faith and courage in our country!!

The late, great, incredibly eloquent Peter Marshall delivered these sermons during the Second World War. I find it mind-bending that the thoughts and concerns of which he spoke in his sermons then are so very relevant today when we are again at war, albeit against a very different foe. With the exception of some (time-relevant) "sexist" remarks (Peter Marshall lived and preached in the 30's and 40's)they could easily be thought of as contemporary. Marshall's son, Peter, selected the sermons in this volume, and had he known what would be happening today, he could not have chosen better.
