The famous minister of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York City here presents an eloquent study of the message for the modern world from three “prophets of yesterday”—Thomas Carlyle, the representative of the Hebraic tendency in English thought which stands for the sway of conscience; Matthew Arnold, the exponent of the Hellenic influence which stresses the balance of liberty and law and which pleads for beauty and ideals in their own right; and Robert Browning, the supreme reconciler for the English people of their Hebrew with their Greek inheritance, the representative of that synthesis of conscience and desire under which we live to-day.
