Socrates and Plato
"In research, the horizon recedes as we advance...as the power of endurance weakens with age, the urgency of the pursuit
grows more intense...and research is always incomplete." Mark Pattison
In his august publication, Training in Theory and Practice (London, 1866), Archibald Maclaren
expatiated on the nobility of rowing and the necessity of training.
Alexander Maclaren (1826-1910) was one of Great Britain's most noteable and famous preachers. While pastoring the Union
Chapel, Manchester (1858-1903), he was known as "the prince of expository preachers." He was rarely active in
denominational or civic affairs, but invested his time studying the Word in the original and sharing its truths with others in
sermons that are still models of effective expository preaching. Maclaren published a number of books of sermons and he
climaxed his ministry by publishing his monumental Expositions of Holy Scripture.
