The, purpose of this study was to describe, analyze,
and evaluate the preaching of P. H. Welshimer. Within the
frame of reference of classical rhetorical theory, as
amplified by twentieth century rhetoricians essentially
within the classical tradition, this study sought successively
(1) to determine the biographical and influential
factors that accounted for Welshimer's success as a
speaker; (2) to trace his phenomenal preaching career;
and (3) to describe, analyze, and evaluate his rhetorical
practice on the basis of five selected sermons.
