Joseph Parker: Peoples Bible: a discourse on Holy Scripture
Shoulder Work: representing publicity, courage, strength and leadership- shoulders to which men may look as to strong tower; and then the delicate heart-work; the sweet sympathy, the paternal or fraternal interest in all that concerns the development, and culture and completion of poor, shattered, struggling human-life.
