The sermons collected here in Spanish and English show how nineteenth-century speakers attempted to interpret and apply the Word of God to everyday lives. Steele documents the attempts of all manner of laity and clergy -- Mexican Franciscans and Italian Jesuits, Hispanics and Anglos, Catholics, Methodists, and Presbyterians -- not only to interpret scripture but also to persuade people to amend their behavior.
