Dr. Chas. E. Jefferson
Pastor The Broadway Tabernacle
Dr. Charles E. Jefferson
HERE has been no greater acquisition to the Lyceum platform, within the last ten years, than we now make when we present to the Lyceum public, Dr. Charles E. Jefferson, Pastor of Broadway Tabernacle, New York City. Hitherto the claims of pastoral oversight, the demands of a historic pulpit in our largest city, the widespread desire amongst men of all creeds and denominations for a literary leadership on questions of moral and religious importance—these have, in the main, tied the spoken ministry and service of Dr. Jefferson to our great Metropolitan center. It is therefore with uncommon pleasure that we announce that from now on, and in the future we hope more and more, Dr. Jefferson will be heard before Lyceum audiences, discussing those great world questions that affect the Peace of Nations and the brotherhood of men.
Following his career at Boston University, Dr. Jefferson had a brilliant ministry of twelve years in Chelsea, Mass., from which city he was called ten years ago to his present charge. Here he succeeded one of America's most distinguished Divines, Dr. Robert Taylor. It is not too much to say that the lustre of this historic pulpit, so long and so eminently associated with the moral and ecclesiastical life of New York City, has not been dimmed by the presence of Dr. Jefferson. On the contrary, its past greatness has been conserved, extended, and made even more vital. So that today, under Dr. Jefferson's ministry—cultured, scholarly and virile, yet winsome and appealing in human tenderness—Broadway Tabernacle stands the interpreter to the people of the Christian spirit through the manifold avenues of Christian service.
As an author, the following are among the important works of Dr. Jefferson:
Doctrine and Deed;
The New Crusade;
The Character of Jesus;
Quiet Talks with Earnest People;
The Minister as Prophet.
Some of these books have had a very large circulation, going through edition after edition. They reveal Dr. Jefferson as a man of rare mind and spirit, of learning, of literary skill, of human and spiritual insight—a man called to be a leader amongst the leaders of men.
Through an arrangement with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, we are privileged to arrange for a few appearances by Dr. Jefferson.
