Responsive Readings- Harry Emerson Fosdick

Published by woodstockwoody
These responsive readings are an attempt to adapt for the
public worship of Christian congregations those noble passages
of both Old and NewTestaments which are suited to the
purpose. In general all didactic scriptures have been avoided, and
those chosen which, like the Psalms, present to God the united
prayer and praise of the congregation, or, like the great chapters
in Isaiah, represent the people as meditating upon and exalted by
their common faith. The rendering is that of the American
Standard Revised Version, with this exception: that wherever the
name Jehovah appears, the general term Lord has been used.
This is done in answer to the widespread and reasonable demand
that our Christian services of devotion shall not be unnecessarily
encumbered by outgrown Hebraisms.
