George H. Morrison--A Scottish Edwardian Preacher?
Brack, Harold A.
Unique in its communication effectiveness, the preaching style of George H. Morrison cannot be defined according to a particular communication classification system. Morrison's preaching reflected his deep concern for the individual person through simplicity of language, certainty of word choice, confident assertion of Scripture, and careful poetic phrasing. This same high regard for his audience appeared in his loving presentation of the truth no matter how controversial the issue, in the absence of contempt for others in his sermons, in his attempts to lead his listeners from their own interests to a broader perception of Christian concern, and in his cultivated ability to preach directly to his audience without the use of notes. Morrison's preaching was further strengthened and distinguished by his integration of Biblical texts, supported by a sound theology and his own insights into the social, individual, technological, and political issues of his day.
