Praise for Frederic William Farrar

[Farrar] was at that time the most popular preacher and writer in the Church of England . . . but was guilty of one great sin in the eyes of many literary critics—he had the gift of expressing his knowledge in such a way as to appeal to the multitude.

—Sir Henry S. Lunn, humanitarian, missionary, and founder of Lunn Poly
