This long-awaited second volume was published five years after the first one was completed in 1907, due to Dargan accepting a pastorate at First Baptist Church in Georgia. Picking up where he left off in the first volume, Dargan begins with the end of the sixteenth century. He narrows his focus in this volume to specific countries and various styles of preaching. Still attentive to the influence on preaching from art, literature, politics, and education, Dargan presents valuable historical content and context for preaching right up until the end of the nineteenth century.
