The author, Bjarnason was the first among clergyman of the Icelandic immigrant communities of Manitoba and "a towering . . . ecclesiastical leader, often considered greatest of them all", according to Stefan Einarson (see Einarson's A History of Icelandic Literature, N. Y., Johns Hopkins Press, 1957, p 340; see Einarsson's History of Icelandic Prose Writers, 1800-1940, Ithica, N. Y., Cornell, 1948.). Bjarnason's sermon's have historic significance in that he was the more liberal clergyman whose disputes with the conservative Reverend Pall Thorlaksson was a key factor in a major split in the Canadian Icelandic community. An Icelandic high school in Winnipeg, the Jón Bjarnasson Academy, was named after him. He also edited the Icelandic-Canadian periodical, Sameiningin (The Unification).
