The Chief Evils Of The Times By Reverend Heinrich Nagelschmitt
The Chief Evils of the Times by Rev. Heinrich Nagelschmitt (1814-1892). The evils of the times are many, and it is the ever recurring duty of the Church to combat them relentlessly. Especially during Lent the attack is particularly vigorous and deliberate. The Rev H. Nagelschmitt, in a course of Lenten sermons, outlines a very effective campaign against these stubborn evils. It will prove of great service, as it deals with such omnipresent corruptive influences as frivolity, contempt for authority, love of pleasure, human respect, and other well known human frailties. (Summary from The Ecclesiastical Review, 1917).
