The Gospel for the Poor is a discourse made by the American preacher and theologian on the texts of the Bible, which is meant to be an encouragement to those materially not favored. It is a call to those who are desperate or weary, to take heart and believe in the benevolence of fate under God, and faith in the government of the Lord. Most of all it reminds the poor that they, according to the Gospel, are those to whom the word of God will first be preached.
